Most of these are either not boring enough or they're the wrong sort of boring.The best one is the salesperson who didn't have a suitcase cheap enough for Lou Reed.This makes up for a quotes site where none of Reed's one-liners is worth repeating.

I quite liked the story about Guy Garvey.

My mate fancied Frankie from the Saturdays, so I queued with him for about an hour to meet them at a signing. We got to the front of the queue and my mate got shy and embarrassed. I said hi. Frankie (I forget which one she is, but my mate assures me it was her) said ‘Nice T shirt.’ I said ‘thanks.’ Another one of the Saturdays then said to my mate, ‘Yours is nice too’, but it wasn’t Frankie, so he didn’t care.
"Don’t forget that piece of wood," his assistant Jeff, a/k/a Monoman, points out. Sure enough, it’s a piece of wood: cut in the shape of a beehive with a hole in the middle, it screws on top of the center hole to make sure those dreaded vibrations don’t get through — according to Jeff, "The only good vibrations come from the Beach Boys." The piece of wood cost a grand on its own, but as Pat assures us, "It’s a really good piece of wood."
