In my side biz of running tickets, I always try to look out for folks that I know and their friends and family. Last month I did a favor for a friend on some tickets and in return he said he’d look out for me on some other connects that I could benefit from. Little did I know that that one lookout on my part would bring on some drama this morning. But I think I handled it quite well based on the circumstances.
*8:14am – cell phone rings*
