Comments: Another show that Rhonda and I just made our way down to on the day of the gig. We figured we’d cough up $120 for a pair of tickets and, if that wasn’t good enough, we’d go out and have a really nice dinner instead. This was 1998 after all. We found one guy with pretty decent seats in the 200 level fairly close to the stage but he wanted $300 for the pair. Face value was $40 a piece. We thank him and moved along. After not having any more luck we were making our way back the way when the self same scalper spotted us again.

“$200 for the pair,” he called, as if doing us the world’s biggest favor.

“No thanks, were good.”

“How much are you willing to give me then?”

I looked at Rhonda and she shrugged.


“Man,” he all but howled, “I can’t do that. I’m a business man.”

I didn’t bother to point out that the business he was involved in was illegal, but what the heck.

“No worries,” I said and turned to leave.

“Hang on, hang on. I can tell that your woman is disappointed not to be going to the show. Will you give me $140?”

I pulled out my wallet and counted out my money.

“Sorry, we only have $135.”

“Fine, fine. That will do. Don’t want to disappoint the little lady.”

And so, Rhonda and I enjoyed an evening of excellent rock ‘n’ roll instead of a good steak. A fair trade, me thinks.
