Pon De Replay

I worked at Tiger Cafe last night- my first real resturant gig. The manager was most happy with me. He says I know how to work a crowd and it helps very much so to get people involved.

BUT... the DJ was a FUCKING ASS! He played this continous shit that sounded like a UFO whirling overhead the entire time. The DJ was apparently informed that I would be dancing that night. But not the time. I was told to dance at 10PM. So at 9:45 I go to the managers office to change and lo and behold...the DJ is talking frank smack about me.

"Who the fuck is this belly dancer. How fucking dare she dance during my show." Your show? No one is up and dancing or anything. Just chilling at the bar.

This is where I walked around the corner and literally tore him a new ass. I told him he was incredibly unprofessional, his music was the same song over and over again and he was not moving the crowd. I turned to the manager and said, "Your choice, I dance or I don't, but you will still pay me full rate."

I got to dance. And I had the crowd moving. 30 minutes flew by and the DJ went right back to playing his UFO shit.

I got paid- several free drinks and invited back for Friday nights :)

It happened, it's over. Why continue to torment yourself with such anger? You were asked to return.
The DJ might have been a jerk and that is his problem. Get over it already. You will feel better once you do.

You go! Pics look great too and revenge can be good.

Woo hoo! You look great, got money AND free drinks, AND rammed it right up DJ Shithead's ass and then broke it off!

The only way it coulda been better was if you'd introduced DJ Shithead to your sword... but then, that would've been disrespectful to the sword and left a real mess for the staff to deal with.

If they would've bothered to ask, I would've told them, "It's not in your best interest to mess with an angry New York-Italian women. Especially right before her gig."
