#9 Show up late.


Yes, your time is more valuable than anyone else in the band, and there’s no better way to show it than to have them wait for you.


In order to show your true contempt, don’t use a lame excuse such as being stuck in traffic.  Come up with something that reflects just how nonchalant you are about the band.


Personally, I like, “Sorry I’m late, man, but I was playing Grand Theft Auto and I was working on a personal best.”


You can accent this technique by asking (you know, since the band is running late) for someone to help you carry in your amp.  Also, be sure to let everyone know that you’re also going to need to cut out early: you have another gig and you don’t want to be late for that.
