Making Demands

By Steve Jones,

I was listening to the radio the other day and the host was talking about the outrageous demands that some movie stars or athletes have when they travel to an event. Things like insisting on white sheets, having 10 opened bars of soap, or having toothpaste put on your toothbrush while you're out.

So for this Friday, have a little fun:

What demands would you make?

Imagine you've been invited to speak at some event, and they really want you, so you can make a few demands for backstage at the event, or in the hotel. What would you want?

I have to say there's not a lot I need other than the basics. The basics being power for the laptop, water, and coffee, preferably a latte of some sort. Other than that privacy for me, but I'm a simple guy.

For the rest of you, anything that you'd need? Or want if you could flex a little influence?
