- Wedding: April 2012
Okay I had to share this:
my friend (and one of our groomsmen) is a wedding DJ on weekends. Well I guess sunday morning he gets a call from his boss who says ‘there’s a wedding at x venue in 30 minutes, their guitar soloist isn’t there yet, can you go do it?’ He said yes, showered, hopped in a suit, dashed to the venue (that WASNT IN HIS TOWN!) and I guess threw his equipment on the ground just in time to play ‘here comes the bride’ covered in dripping sweat.
The story ended up being that the guitarist wasn’t there on time so the venue called him, he said ‘oh well someone called me and said the bride and groom broke up.’ they werel ike ‘uhhh well, they haven’t, can you please come?’ the guy says ‘no, i think i got screwed over in this situation’ and hangs up! He TOTALLY bailed on this couple and wedding!! The bride/groom were like in tears thanking my friend for coming out on short notice and saving the day. He had to immediately pack up after their reception and go to ANOTHER wedding he had scheduled that night.
He is officially my hero and reminded me that no matter how many horror stories we hear day to day, sometimes super heros really do come save the day! Happy endings for the win!
