Haha.. I know. I've long since stopped being surprised by it or even offended. If anything I find it (a little) amusing. I had a guy last year -- a producer/actor -- who wanted to option a script of mine. We talked on the phone numerous times, and he insisted on taking me out for a beer when I was in LA for a meeting. During the beer he was acting like we were best buddies, telling me about his wife and kid, etc... We went through some notes on the script, and then I mentioned some kind of payment for the option and it was like he evaporated -- poof. Never heard from him again
