Delivery

The other day, one of our actresses decided she really, really, really wanted a pizza.

Naturally, my boss sent me out to the nearest CPK to pick up some hideous Ninja Turtles-style concoction with goat cheese and spinach and who knows what else.

Driving back, my car smelling like a culinary nightmare, I wondered to myself, Now, if I were to get a hankering for a Philly Cheese steak next week, will this actress pick one up for me?

Keep in mind, this was late in the afternoon, maybe an hour or two before wrap.  This girl had already eaten a free breakfast and a free lunch.  Now, the production is buying her dinner, not to mention paying me five bucks for mileage.

Why does everyone think this is okay?

  1. Just heard a story yesterday about a guy who paid $10,000 plus travel expenses to send some guy to France to pick up macarons for his wife. I suppose the thing about your story that I find most upsetting is that someone would request a pizza and not be willing to fly you to New York.

  2. Um, they are getting paid FAR more then you. I suspect an hourly rate $100+. So, pizza and your gas money is a SMALL price to pay to keep them happy. You’ll be glad to know that this is common everywhere. If you are at the top and folks are paying you $350+/hr, then your whim’s are catered to by folks getting paid $25/hr. Check out the legal profession as well. Frankly, this only makes sense.
