I’ve never cried so much with laughter in my life
I played a concert with the amateur Southport Philharmonic when I was about 16, and everything that could have gone wrong did. There was a guy in the second violins who played left-handed, and he kept getting his bow tangled up with that of his desk partner. The leader had brought her seven-year-old son along and foolishly left him unsupervised in the front row of the audience. He started messing around, so in the middle of the concert she got up, smacked him and put him back in his seat, in front of all the audience. The conductor was very distracted, so he started bringing people in early, and the whole thing nearly ground to a halt. I’ve never cried so much with laughter in my life.
