    The Wedding Coordinator ...

    I found this quite hilarious, as I've been in a similar situation with "eejit" wedding coordinators.
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    Yup, been there too with wedding coordinators ... people who know nothing whatsoever about music yet try to tell me how to play the organ.

    On one occasion, at a wedding rehearsal in my own church, a visiting wedding coordinator (who was not a musician, let alone an organist or pianist) came over to me and said "can't you play that processional (Trumpet Voluntary) quieter?". I refused ... she said, "well, we'll see about that!" I said "see about what?" She retorted, "well if you don't do as I say, then we will get another organist!" I said "fine ... you do just that.", and walked out.

    The bride and brides family begged me to come back ... I said "only if that barracuda leaves me alone (within earshot of the coordinator) ... !" After the wedding, she said "well, it should have been quieter!" Moron.
