“First, it’s a REQUEST. That means you would LIKE to hear it, not that I HAVE to play it. OH, and are you really gonna stand there and WAIT for me to play it…? WoW. Secondly, when and if I DO play it, at the VERY least, YOU really better dance, tip the bartender, and celebrate like you said “everybody” would. OH, did you really come up here and ask me to play three or four songs..? WoW. Well, if you are gonna treat me like a jukebox, you might as well give me the five bucks you would stick in a jukebox to hear the four songs YOU wanna hear, never mind that dance floor that I’ve had pumping for the last two hours. We gotta play YOUR songs…cuz it’s your birthday and all. I get it. Thanks. I thought I was here to entertain these people, but I got it now…it’s all about YOU. Would you like to look through my computer and program the rest of the evening? You obviously know how to do my job way better than me…and I’ve been doing it professionally for almost two decades. Where have you been all my life?”
“Lemme see if I can play that for you. Gimme a bit. Thanks.”
Let the DJ work. He is working for you, but that doesn’t mean he is “working for YOU”.
