that sounds so unbelievable. but Its a true story. Back in 1997 I was hanging out with some neighbors by my town house (a rental) - and a girl got her car towed. I went and talked to the tow truck driver and I tried to get him to un hook the car. But it was one of those opportunistic tow trucks trying to make extra money. it was totally un necessary. Anyway, So I was trying to console the girl and make her feel better. I spent alot of time talking about how sometimes when something bad happens it is really an opportunity of some kind. Just usually you don't know until later what the opportunity was. She got really irritated and started yelling and insulting me - and I told her she should leave. She came after me violently and tried to punch me and ended up falling on me and I got 2 bruised ribs.
a similar problem happened to me last weekend. It was the 48 hour film
BEFORE THE CONTEST:
6:30 am I woke up and went shopping for food for the shoot. I knew everyone would get hungry, its like cramming for an exam. You work and work and if you don't have food handy you starve. So I bought drinks ice, a cooler, all kinds of stuff, sandwiches, I bought the pistachios, hummus, fruit. I get over to our home base at like 8:45 or so. And Still the other crew weren't there.
