I laughed a couple of times reading through this whole thread, (skipping over family at roo tangent), but this last post had me howling. The last bit where he quiets down and then the "IT'S BEEN EONS!!" coming back was hilarious. Could use the laugh, thank you.
My biggest horror was hanging out on our grass mats further back at Radiohead and this group comes sitting down with a guy and he's clearly not well off. I'm distracted by him but not ready to ask my friend to get up and move until he pulls up the side of his shorts and starts taking a leak where he is sitting.
Without alerting my group I looked him in the eye and said, "That is FOWL." Then turned to my friend and said "It is time to leave." We grabbed our grass mats out of the way and scooted into the crowd. We ended up finding friends and a great place to stand, so perhaps pee guy was a sign.

^ew... but DEFINITELY not the only person to have peed in the grass during radiohead where they were standing. my friend did it. lol. i'm sure other hardcore radiohead fans were pissing away in the grass too. i'm glad i didn't have to pee either, cause i probably would've done the same. lol.

In '04 we were parked next to these two chicks and at some point one of their friends showed up. I don't remember talking to him or anything but the next day we were talked to the chicks and we were like where is your friend. They told us he was sitting in their tent and that he had been there since he had arrived. They proceeded to tell us how he had snuck in through the woods, lost all his friends that he originally came with, had no money, or gear. All he had was a bunch of tabs and he had taken some of them on the way in through the woods and then ate the rest of them once he got to camp. Was in there all weekend until about Sunday when we saw him walking around. Bummer.
At MMJ this year there were these two younger dudes who were in front of us. My group, everyone else and these two guys were all sitting down waiting for MMJ to take the stage. When they finally came on we all stood up except for one of the dudes. About halfway through the second song I see him start puking about a foot away from my shoes. So I start freaking out and point this out to his buddy. He kneels down and tries to talk to him. He looks up at me and tells me he ate a bunch of shrooms. Someone hands him a water bottle and is like drink this. Make him drink this. He doesn't want the water. Keeps puking and at this point I was like dude you gotta be a friend and get him out of here. One, it's not good for him to be around all these people, in the middle of a crowd like this puking. And two, it's not cool to me. But his friend helped him out, finally.
One year a friend took too much stuff and apparently, as the story goes, got stuck in a porta potty for an hour. Hilarious because it WOULD happen to THIS guy. And the way he told it was quacking funny as hell.
Not MY horror stories just some stuff I have witnessed or been a part of.
Just goes to show ... "Only take what you can handle and ALWAYS KNOW YOUR DEALER."
