Asshole of the Week

Definitely not my ass, much less an asshole 😀

The setting: Cutty Sark Pub, post-Iron Maiden gig in Ljubljana

The cast: DJ Pengovsky as himself, putting on tunes by Led Zeppelin, The Kiss, Guns n’ Roses, Steppenwolf, The Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Dire Straits, Doors and similiar. Also present are several Iron Maiden fiends, chief among them: The Asshole, age approx. 22

The Dialogue:

Asshole: Do you have any Iron Maiden?
Pengovsky: You’re about the fourth person to ask me that, and the answer is still no.
Asshole’s Friend: Can you put on Whiskey in the Jar?
Pengovsky: Sure.
Asshole: If you don’t have Iron Maiden, what do you have?
Pengovsky: Kind of silly question, don’t you think?
Asshole: Why? I thought this was a rock&roll bar…

  1. emmm, know the story very well. it’s so weird to see how much can some people get pissed off when you kindly let them know the dj is *not* a juke-box. 😉

  2. Exactly… I don’t mind people asking – and if the song remotely fits the playlist, I’ll gladly put it on. Afterall, that’s why I’m there: to make people feel good.

    But the self-involved assholes of this world think that it is their god-given right to have their song “right here, right now” (to put it in the words of Fatboy Slim :))

    And the thing that bothers me most is that when they do get their song, they don’t listen to it, but rather go to the loo or talk on the phone. Let alone remeber to buy DJ a drink.

    So the Asshole of the Week got a severe talking to 🙂

  3. I bet that wouldn’t have happened if you had a black clad tall stranger with a Guinness in his hand standing next to you, looking all seriouslike. Shall I come over for the Marilyn Manson gig (any excuse to get back to LJ)? 😛 😀
