Sad, Strange & Short True Stories by Mr. E Style

I moved to Vancouver to be an actor, singer and songwriter. I ended up being a waiter." "I was given a shift at a posh restaurant in Vancouver with the promise of being hired if I did a good job. At the end of the shift the owner told me he wasn't going to hire me. He then told me ‘don't get me wrong, you're better than nothing'". 

I got a job at Canadian Airlines in Vancouver. I had to leave a shift twenty minutes early one day for an audition for the last season of "X-Files".  I was still on probation so they fired me and I didn't get the part either. Thank God for credit cards.

I love Branson, Missouri but it didn't love me. Someone told me that my problem was that I was a wannabe in a has-been town. I auditioned to be in one of the local shows, after I sang an original song called "It's Not Me, It's You" the owner told me "Branson ain't a Playboy kind of town, we don't do what you do here." After that I was billed as "The Marilyn Manson of Branson", shortly after, I went back to Canada.
