Since this is one of the finest comedy shows of the last few years I felt that it deserved a thread on it's own merits but I also thought it would be interesting to see if anyone here has had any 'Larry David incidents' happen to them, either recently or in the past.

I had one last week when I went to the cinema with my sister, we went for a meal beforehand and when we had to pay we didn't have enough small change so I had to give a large(ish) note as payment. The waitress took the money and went to the till, but didn't return with the change. This produced a Larry-Cheryl style discussion between me and my sister where we, quite loudly, complained about why she hadn't brought the change, saying things like ''She can't honestly believe we left a £15 tip on a £25 meal, it wasn't that fucking good'' and my sister telling me to sit still and not get up and complain. When we did eventually get the change the waitress gave me a really mean look for not waiting for the change and I gave an equally venomous look for wasting my time. The complaining between me and my sister continued almost until the film we saw came on. It was only afterwards that I realised how surreal the whole thing had been and how much I had sounded like Larry.
