The last film I worked on, the director told the producer to tell me to get a ping pong table for the office. The producer didn't want to spend any money, so he told me not to spend over $200.
I found one on sale at wal-mart and had some PA's go pick it up and then come back and put it together.
The table was in 4 peices, so it had a seam straight down the middle...
When the director saw the table he said that it was worthless (without ever even trying it out) and made them the PA's take it apart, pack it back in the box and return it to Wal-mart.
There was almost an effing mutiny that day.
