DISCLAMER: The subject of this post is not designed to describe the actual content of the following "problem" Now, on to the meat: Back in my freshman year, my school was doing West Side Story for it's Spring Musical. I was assigned to a drop pole that had one of three fences (like those you may find at an elementary school) duct taped to it. During our Dress Rehearsal on the Tuesday before opening night (Thursday), we were informed that the drama clubs from the three Junior Highs in our district would be attending the rehearsal. So far, so good, right? During one blackout, I was told (like I had been for the last 3 days) to lower my drop pole so that the fence was a "wall". This was a relatively easy task, so I released the locking handle and started to lower the pole. A quick pause to describe our set. In front of two of the three "fences" we had, there were black teasers to hide the lights, curtain rods, and the fences. My fence was directly behind the first teaser. Here's the problem. I waited until DURING the blackout to grab and release the locking handle. By mistake, I lowered the teaser until it was 10 ft. above the ground before realizing that it was the wrong pole. I quickly pulled the teaser back to it's previous position, and lowered the leg. This was one of my few screw-ups as a techie, but it is definitely the most memorable. PLEASE REPLY IN POST: What did you think my problem was going to be at first? Be truthful!
