Wired has an article about the celebrities that shop at the Apple Store
at the Grove Mall near Hollywood. Some celebs are nice, such as Kiefer
Sutherland, who thanks everybody, and the Wayans brothers, Marlon and
Keenan… And then you have the idiots. The star that wants her pink
mini iPod, and she wants it now! Don’t you KNOW they have a special
reserve of iPods for celebrities ? I’ll let you read which one that is,
because I don’t happen to think she’s much of a celeb these days. And
then there was Levar Burton. You know, the "blind dude" from Star Trek:
The associate, who also asked to remain anonymous, said he made the mistake of asking Burton for some ID when the actor was making a big credit card purchase. The associate said he recognized Burton, but wanted to reassure him he was doing a thorough job of checking credentials.
Burton “began shouting at me to ask anyone in the store who he was, all the while telling me that he left his ID in the car and he didn’t want to have to go get it,” the associate said. “I finally caved in, only because I could see a vein pulsating in his forehead and I didn’t want to be the one responsible for causing the blind dude from Star Trek to have a stroke.”
So, just remember folks,
if someone demands something
from your store…
and the guy looks anything like this:
Give him whatever the hell he wants
and charge it to Levar Burton!
