Anybody else ever had this happen?
A first this weekend...
"Hey, by the way, you guys got a sandwhich in the fridge that yall can grab during the reception IF YOU HAVE TIME. We only ordered enough food for the guest to eat."
Later in the night the planner tells us, "Hey, didn't want you to forget, your sandwhich is in the fridge downstairs."
Apparently, the other vendors had the same gripe... and none of us ate our "sandwhich"
What the H...? I, and apparently the other vendors present, just assumed there was some unwritten common courtesy rule somewhere that photographers and other vendors are typically allowed to eat whatever food is being served... especially when they are there for 10 hours plus. None of use have never not been allowed to eat or specifically told not to eat at a buffet type reception with open sit anywhere tables. Even at formal served dinners, we've always had a place at a table.
End of the night... enough of that expenisive food left over to feed a small army...
Looking Forward: From now on, this will come up before hand. We're eating, or we are gonna leave, get some food, and come back.
Didn't even get any cake... I mean, come on... I coulda gone without all that delicious looking and smelling food but to withold the cake... the line was crossed.
Side note: Print, Album, etc... prices just went up by 50%.
and yes, because somebody will say it, We did bring fruit and multigrain bars, etc to eat. It's the principal of the thing that tee'd everybody off.
