I was asked to accompany some hymn singing at an old people's home; so I dutifully practised the hymns at home, turned up there on the day, thumped out the first chord on the piano - and discovered that it hadn't been tuned in about thirty years. Half the notes didn't play at all. Of those that did, I don't think any were at the right pitch. You can imagine what it sounded like, but I think they just thought I couldn't play... At any rate, I was never asked again.
Anyone else got any toe-curling experiences they would like to share?
