Once upon a time, we had an AD who like that expensive imported Italian bubble water, so he had the craft service guy buy it for him and keep it in the trailer, supposedly hidden.
Of course, the crew found said stash and would consume all of it by the end of the day’s first rehearsal.
So the craft service guy got tired of overpaying for imported Italian bubble water started buying this stuff:
It’s cheap, wet, and bubbly, and everyone loves it, but still – there’s never enough. Interdepartmental wars are breaking out over the Refreshe stash at crafty.
It’s gotten so bad that now we’re all hoarding it on our respective trucks.
Me: “There’s a whole case of Refreshe at crafty!”
Boss: “Bring it to the truck and make sure no one sees you.”
So we all sneak cases of canned water from crafty to our respective hoarding spots, and still there are shortages.
Sure we could buy it ourselves, but where’s the fun in that?
