Once I put the bass down, it’s down. Also no one wants this water.
-After lugging my upright bass in a gig bag all the way up a wheelchair ramp and squeezing through the door, I’m standing next to it in literally the only place in the room where it is out of the way of everyone.-
Guy working at studio: "Can you just move your double bass over here behind the counter? It’s blocking the water cooler."
Me: -Motioning over to the door next to me-"Oh, I have a lesson in a few minutes in this room right here."
Guy: "Okay but I’m gonna need you to move it over here."
Me: "I’m just propping it up here for a minute-"
Guy: "What if someone wants a drink of water?"
LOOKS LIKE THEY’RE JUST GONNA HAVE TO WAIT.
