Best story from behind the wood | There are a lot. Maybe the actor in town during TIFF who forgot his YSL jacket, the only content of which was like 15 magnums and nothing else which seemed a bit excessive. I have for cutting off people in a way where they actually thank me, tip well (and drunkenly) and visit the next day. So I don’t have too many actual crazy tales.
