Tell him to wait off to the side and only when he's done he can go in. If he tries to barge in then kick him out.

I snatch this lil punk's cigarette from him and take a nice long drag on it.

Wolf?: "Hey! I was still smoking that!"

Then I repay the favor and blow out a nice puff back at him.

Lana: "You're done smoking for the night pal. If I get complaint's your lighting shit up inside, you're face is ending up like this cigarette."

Next person to talk to me is some Dalmatian guy.

Dalmatian: "You let him off pretty easy. You get jerks like that often?"

Lana: "Not too often really. ID and ticket please."

He hands them over, both- huh?

Lana: "What's with the money?"

Dalmatian: "It's a tip. Treat yourself to something after work."

I look at his ID and ticket more closely, just in case the "tip" is to get my guard down. Both check out alright though.

Lana: "Thanks, enjoy the concert."

A good chunk of time flies by as I continue checking tickets and id's. Weirdly, there's still quite a line of people here yet? Feels like the concert should be starting soon and the line should be getting shorter. Next in line is a little sheep.

Lana: "Hey nice beanie there. Can I see your ticket and ID please?"

Sheep: "Sure, thanks!"

ID checks out, ticket is... not paid for? I look at it more and see it's also fake. It's not stamped and feeling it, it's not even the right kind of paper.

Lana: "Care to explain where you got this ticket?"

Sheep: "Is... is there a problem? I just bought it half an hour ago and got in line."

Lana: "Try again, we've been sold out for two weeks, there aren't any extra tickets left to sell."

She gives me an annoyed look
Sheep: "How can you be sold out when I just spent seventy-five notes on this ticket?"

Lana: "Look the tickets a fake. It doesn't have this concert's serial number or our paid for stamp on it, which would have our club's-."

Sheep: "Then why do you have a booth setup in the parking lot selling them? This is kinda ridiculous."

Lana: "We don't have a booth setup anywhere tonight. You got scammed, and it sounds like I've got trash to throw out. "

I call up Virgil's phone-

Sheep: "What, you calling the cops or something?"

Lana: "For what? They aren't going to do shit here. Hey Virgil! I need you up here at the front door, you're taking over door duty for a second, we got an issue out back."

After I hang up, I double check my pockets. I've got my phone, a small pocket knife, and a box cutter on me. Virgil comes out and explain the situation quickly.

Lana: "Tell anyone with those fake tickets to form a second line off to the side as they come up. I'm gonna see if I can't get their money back."

He nods as I make my walk around to the back lot.

I don't walk up to the stand right away, and instead take a peek around the corner to see what's up first. Sure enough, there's a convincing booth back here. Looks like they're selling t-shirts and cassette tapes too? They can't be legit merch sellers, they weren't with the band when I talked with them earlier today.

How should I approach these money sucking leeches?

>Approach the booth and point out the flaws in the merch to the other custolers
I make my way over to the booth and stand over by the line and just look at the merch they're selling. I get a few angry glares as I approach the front of the booth.
Raccoon: "Sorry lady, no cutting in line. You want something, wait your turn."

Lana: "Just looking to see what crud you're selling back here."

Pangolin: "Crud? Perhaps you'd like to take a closer look, we've got excellent shirts and CDs for tonight's concert. Along with tickets for forty-five notes!"

Lana: "Yeah I'd advice everyone here take a closer look, you little shits are ripping us off with your bootleg junk."
Raccoon: "Excuse me?"

Pangolin: "H-hey! This isn't junk. This is some really high quality stuff!"

I pick one up and point to the back of the case
Lana: "No record label or publisher info on the back, for starters. No copyright info either. Pretty trashy attempt here."

The line of customers start to whisper and a few even head off.

Raccoon: "So what? That could all just be a factory misprint, making these rare collectibles! Now get lost or buy something lady, otherwise I'm calling security on you."

>You have concrete evidence of their fraud. Pin one down hard and intimidate the other.
>Okay you two, tonight's been frustrating enough that I don't care your selling bootleg trash. But your fake fucking tickets are causing a scene and if you don't return the money from those sales then we're taking all of it and fucking you up.
I grab the little smart ass by the shirt.

Lana: "Security's already here and you picked the wrong night to piss her off! I could give two shits less if you wanna risk selling fake shirts or CDs, that's the band's call if they wanna get someone involved on that or not. You start making my job harder by scamming people on fake tickets though, NOW we've got a problem. So unless you want your face connecting with pavement, your buddy there is going to hand over the cash so I can start refunding people."

I go to wipe that nasty crud off my face and end up dropping him without really thinking.

Raccoon: "Take the cash and rush!"

Pangolin: "You serious? She's a big cat! I can't outrun that!"

Raccoon: "Don't waste the chance! Go! I can hold her-"

I clock the raccoon and knock him and their stand over.

Lana: "Light-weight, you probably couldn't even hold a shot of liquor."

Pangolin: "I-uh..."

Lana: "You handing that cash over now or do you wanna end up like your 'co-worker'?"

I see him look down for a second. I don't get an answer.
Lana: "You got five seconds before I come over and take it by force."

Pangolin: "Okay! You can have the cash and the tickets...if I can pack up my shirts and CDs afterwards. Deal?"

Ugh, really all I care about is getting the customer's money back. I don't like this guy thinking he can call the shots here though. Do I really care if he's taking his junk and selling it elsewhere?

Lana: "Shirts can go but the CDs are getting dumped. No-one can really tells what's on them until they pop'em in a CD player. For all I know, you're selling crappy live recordings of one of their concerts."

Pangolin: "Fair enough."

He hands me a tin with quite the wad of cash in it. I grab the CDs from the knocked over stand and take them with me to throw out later. Maybe keep one for myself to hear how bad the audio on these things are.

When I get back to the front, I see the line hasn't moved at all.

Lana: "I thought we were making a second line for the people that jipped on fake tickets?"

Virgil: "They-"

Sheep: "I ain't moving till I get my money back or I get let in."

Lana: "You want your money back, then step aside and make a second line! I managed to get your money back from those con-artists. Virgil, you're in charge in issuing refunds now. I'll handle the front door."

Virgil: "How much were the fake tickets?"

Sheep: "Seventy-five notes!"

Orange Cat: "Seventy-five? You got ripped off by the rip offs then, I only had to pay forty-five for mine."

Lana: "I did see a forty-five painted on their stand too. Where's the extra thirty coming?"

Sheep: "I paid extra for front row."

Ah shit, is everyone going to start saying this for a bigger refund or-

Virgil: "Seems to check out, her ticket has that price and front row printed on it. Cat's ticket says forty-five."

Lana: "Good catch, I guess? Let's hopes there's enough money in there then to give out refunds to everyone."

With that ordeal taken care of I get back to checking tickets and apologizing for the delay. The band concert ends up starting before everyone can get in, but I hear from Kaari the band promises to hold a little encore of their first few songs so everyone still gets the full concert experience. Once the line's taken care of, I get to head in and wash up a little and head over to see Kaari at the bar.

I sit down and I see her sneak in a little smile.
Kaari: "I'm glad we can finally sit down and share a break."

Lana: "Yeah, same. I had to boot some rip offs selling fake tickets. One of them spit tobacco in my face."

Kaari: "Aw gross! I hope you socked 'em good."

Lana: "You bet I did. Knocked him and his little stand over."

I look back over at Kaari and she seems kinda down.

Kaari: "Wish I could deck jerks in the face like you can...

Lana: "Why? Run into a couple jerks tonight?"

She lets out a sigh and slumps her head onto the bar.

Kaari: "No short supply of them tonight. I've got like, no tips at all either."

Lana: "None at all?"

Kaari: "Okay, not none at all,I made like, five notes worth the tips tonight."

Lana: "That's it? We sold like two-hundred seats!"

Kaari: "Ugh, don't tell me the numbers. "I just wanna drop but I can't."

Lana: "Did...something specific happen tonight? Is there some jackass I gotta give an express ride to the back dumpster?"

Kaari: "No, just. Everything weighing me down tonight. Sucking like a bendy straw at my job, no one cared enough to come help. Can't get tips. Everyone's got something to complain about tonight. Service too slow, wrong drink, wrong this, wrong that, just. UGH!"

There's no way I can let my poor bun keep working like this, I gotta help her de-stress while we're on break. Everyone's in the concert room right now for another hour and Virgil's took over security for that, for now. We pretty much have the whole bar area to ourselves, how should we spend our break?

No. 1012668 ID: 50af53

Well, tonight's awful and ones like these don't usually get better so getting your minds, or at least her mind, off it might help. Offer to do something with her tomorrow maybe? Talk about something to look forward to. Give her head or shoulders a rub if you feel it won't make her uncomfortable.

Lana: "Want some head and ear rubs."
I hear her give a sigh of relief.

Kaari: "Work these poor ears back into shape."

She plants her head on the bar and flops her ears over closer to me. I start gently rubbing them.

>Well, tonight's awful and ones like these don't usually get better so getting your minds, or at least her mind, off it might help. Offer to do something with her tomorrow maybe? Talk about something to look forward to.
Lana: "Maybe we could make tomorrow movie night?"

Kaari: "Your treat?"

Lana: "Sure! You can even pick what movies to rent."

Kaari: "Yeah! Be nice to watch something that isn't a fuzzed up VHS."

Lana: "Oh? Who said I was springing extra for DVDs?"

She giggles a little.
Kaari: "The big cat with a DVD player."

Lana: "Yeah we can rent some DVDs. I don't wanna risk the VCR eating another tape."

There's a pause in the conversation, so I go back to rubbing her big ol ears. They're so nice and soft.

I get lost in the moment and go on massaging and petting her fur for most of our break till the band's roadie hops over for a drink.

Roadie: "Hey girls, can I get a screwdriver?"

Lana: "Did something break?"

That gets a chuckle out of him.

Roadie: "No, I mean the drink. I wanna un-wind a little before I gotta clean up after the concert."
Lana: "Sure. Kaari can-"

I'm cut off by her snoring. Guess that massage relaxed her a bit more than I thought it would? Should I wake her up, or handle this myself?

The Roadie doesn't seem to be the type to be picky about his drinks and you can probably make an alright screwdriver even if it won't be as good as Kaari can make it.
Besides, waking Kaari now with a task to do would only increase her stress, let her rest for now and carefully nudge her awake when there's nobody at the bar wanting to order a drink.

Lana: "Actually I can handle it. I'm no expert but it's simple enough that I can handle."

Roadie: "Heh, letting your friend there sleep on the job?"

Lana: "I think she's earned a little break."

I'm thankful when I open the fridge and find we've got orange juice for the drink. I was worried for a second we might not have had any.

Lana: "Speaking of work, what's it like traveling with a band?"

Roadie: "It's like driving around with the radio stuck on the same station. Only music I get to hear, is pretty much what the band's practicing."

I get one of the measuring things and pour some vodka in it, then dump it in the glass of ice. After that I fill it up with some orange juice. He takes his drink and hands over one of the band's free drink tokens.

Roadie: "You a fan yourself?"

Lana: "Hell yeah. I was a little excited to be working this night honestly. Our staffing issue kinda soured that mood though."

Roadie: "It happens. Heh, man the band would be really screwed if they were short 'staved' themselves."

Lana: "I can't imagine trying to cover for a missing band member."

Roadie: "Yeah...Try imagining covering their bills."

Lana: "Huh?"

There's an awkward silence after that for a bit. The roadie takes few sips out of his drink. Might be good, since Kaari's sleep-

Roadie: "So...you just security here or you do other kinda work?"

Lana: "Mainly security, but I'm a little bit of a repair gal myself too. Rocking the college life when I'm not here, trying to learn more about electronics and fixing stuff."

Roadie: "Quite the skill set then, brains and muscles?"

He hands me a card and looks at me kinda nervously.

Roadie: "Could uh... really use that ourselves if you're interested. Case you wanna move up a paygrade and do some traveling."

Lana: "That sounds like it'd be fun, but I'm kinda anchored here in town for now. Family and classes to take care of."

Roadie: "You're married?"

I laugh a little at that.

Lana: "Haha, no. I live on my own mostly, but the rest of my family relies on me for a little extra income support. Not having much money growing up is kinda what got me into fixing electronics. Stuff was always bustin or going up in smoke and we just had to go without. Now that I'm in college and can learn, my mom and sister are always asking me for some help fixing something."

Concert must be wrapping up here soon, I can hear some cheering and some louder guitar blasts. Or wait, is there screaming too?

Virgil busts out into the bar and the loud concert music and fans blast into my ears.

Virgil: "Someone get a fire extinguisher!"

Kaari jolts back to life with the rest of us and starts freaking out a little.

Kaari: "Aah! Wh-what happened?"

The music starts to stop, the drummer being the last to slow down and stop.

Virgil: "Amp or something went up in smoke and now it's starting to spark and flame up!"

Shit. If one thing on that line is spitting sparks and flames, we need to cut power to that line too before something else gets affected or lights on fire! Question is, how should I split up group and tasks here? I know at least with Kaari and Virgil, we're all trained on putting out small fires.

You stay behind to guard the cash register. I'd put even odds on this being retaliation or a distraction so someone can come in and rob the place, considering you just chased off some ruffians.

Kaari can get the extinguisher, Virgil can cut the power. Ask Lana to help, since she's trained for repair.

Lana: "Kaari, stay here. Virgil, there should be a fire extinguisher behind the stage curtains and one mounted on the wall in the break room."

He charges off for the break room.

>I'd put even odds on this being retaliation or a distraction so someone can come in and rob the place, considering you just chased off some ruffians.
Shoot, if this is a robbery attempt I don't want Kaari stuck here alone. Last thing she needs tonight is to deal with robbers.
Lana: "Roadie dude. Can you stick down here and help Kaari watch the front while I go cut the power from the stage?"

Roadie: "Yeah sure! Just hurry before something else happens!"

Right, fire!

I make my way to the upstairs security room and open up the fuse box. Nothing's hot or smoking up inside, so that's good. I get some electrical gloves on just to be safe and start safely unscrewing the fuse. Virgil's lucky things are wired up where the lights are on a separate fuse.

With that taken care of, I head back downstairs to help Virgil clean up after the fire.

Lana: "How you holding up Virgil? You still got all your feathers?"
I look around but I don't see anyone in here?

Lana: "Virgil? Hey Virgil you in here?!"
I get up on the stage and see the fire's been put out at least. Then someone else walks up on stage.

???: "If you're looking for the bird man, he went to get a broom and pan. Try to watch your step by the way."

Lana: "Ah, did something break?"

???: "Yeah. Lil after our amp started spitting heat, 'Tay musta freaked out and knocked over a light or something. Busted up bulb on the ground."

Lana: "Oh! You're-"

Band member: "Yup, the guitarist for The Blood Soaked Hecklers. Name's Allinen."

Lana: "Nice to meet you Allinen. I'm actually a little bit of a fan of your band's stuff."

Allinen: "Sounds like you got good taste in music then."

Lana: "Pretty much anything rock, punk, and metal I'll like. So what are you doing up here on stage?"

She looks a little upset and goes on a little bit of a diatribe.
Allinen: "Well, course I'm stuck playing the clean up solo while the other two decided to get hammered. You know, 'Oh shit, our stuff caught on fire! Let's ignore the fact we might not have safe equipment to play tomorrow's gig with and get drunk instead!'"

She lets out a sigh.

Allinen: "Sorry for unloading all that on ya. I'm kinda just at a loss on what to do here. I was hoping to just chill out tonight's show, but someone has to be the responsible one, ya know?"

Go grab a drink at the bar, tell Kaari I said you get it on the house, I'll clean this up for you. I'm just happy you're not cancelling the show.

Lana: "Hey, you're not alone in this tonight. You got me and my co-workers willing to help you out tonight."

Allinen: "I appreciate the offer, but man. You guys shouldn't have to clean up after us like this, it just looks bad on our part."

Lana: "Trust me, moving a few amps around and cleaning up broken glass is no sweat. I'm just happy you guys still wanna play and aren't cancelling."

Allinen: "Folding the show's not really in our hand anyway. Surprised we sold out for both nights."
Lana: "Two of those tickets would have been mine if I wasn't stuck working tonight."

Allinen: "Two?"

Lana: "I'd bring a date with me. Could have been a fun time."

I see Virgil coming back now with a broom.

Lana: "Now go hang with the rest of your band buddies at the bar and have a drink on the house. Me and 'the bird man' will take care of this mess back here."

I hand her the free drink token I got from the roadie earlier. Nothing saying I can't re-issue those.
Allinen: "Thanks. I'll have to return the favor sometime."

Lana: "Don't worry about it, go and enjoy the night while we're still open."

She heads off and Virgil gets back up on stage.

Virgil: "Playing hero for your favorite band tonight?"

Lana: "Yeah, maybe. I can certainly relate to her situation there."

Virgil: "Just remember not to spread yourself too thin. We got a full house and a popular band drinking up at the bar."

Lana: "Well guess we better get to it with cleaning up."

He tosses the broom and dustpan my way.

Virgil: "You handle the broken lights, I'll focus on mopping up. Then after closing maybe you and the roadie can check out the equipment and maybe see why this thing was sparking up."

Ugh, my goodwill already haunts me. Working after closing. Could be fun working with the band though. I try not to worry about that though and focus on not missing any pieces of the bulb. How did this even get knocked down? Stage lights are mounted up in those rack things on the ceiling.

Cleanup doesn't take too long, and I re-join Kaari and some of the band up at the bar.

Fox: "C'mon... givva nooda shot. I-I gotsa notes yet."

Allinen: "Dente, stop pestering her. You've already had a ton tonight-"

I can hear Allinen mutter something else, but it's way too loud in here to really pick up the conversation.

Dente: "I'm- m, no wightleight, I'll haaaandle a-ah-aall-"

She starts coughing pretty hard, and Kaari's already got a glass of water on the bar by her.

Allinen: "Come on 'Tay. You need to get a little water in ya."

Dente: "Water ain't no freak'n fun at a bar."

She slams a fist on the bar table.

Dente: "Noow comman. Hid me with anntha shotta tha rum, bun."

I feel like I should intervene here, but not quite sure how since this is one of the band members. Never had to deal with possibly aggressive co-workers or "special" guests like this.

But a firm, but not painful hand on his shoulder and tell them that sure they can have "one last shot, for the road." Only escalate from there if they make an issue out of it.

Don't touch him, that could immediately escalate.
Just take the other bandmember's side. Tell him that if he drinks some water, he won't have as much of a hangover tomorrow.
Also... he doesn't have anything to prove. Nobody will think less of him if he doesn't drink any more tonight.
