Renaissance Faire Fury
Back in middle school, I got sick the day of the big family & friends outing to the Ren Faire. I had been REALLY excited, but after I puked all morning, my parents said I couldn't go. They still went, darn it.
When I ran out of meds, I called Mom's cell phone... only one of those "in character" a-holes took her phone, presumably looking at it in mock wonder.
"Are you a genie?" he asked in a stupid accent.
"What? No. Please let me talk to my mom! I AM SICK."
"If you aren't a genie, how are you talking to me from inside this little box?"
That was the day I vowed to never, ever go to the Ren Faire.
