Wow you think way to highly of yourself and not enough about your clients. So since this event occurred with the nurse have you been blaming her for caring about the health and safety of the children (which is her job by the way). Maybe you should look in the mirror and see how do you prevent the misunderstanding from occurring again. By the way a lot of people have soy allergies too so soy butter may not be the best bet.
I don't see how looking in the mirror is going to help solve the problem of food allergies.... but i guess i could give it a try.
There are always going to be potential risks involved within ANYTHING. It is absolutely impossible to make something 100% safe.
So, as a public performer, I have done my best to guarantee the safety of the majority. Not everything is going to satisfy 100% of the population a 100% of the time.
Did I knowingly neglect the fact that people have allergies to peanut butter?
No, I didn't. I knew this and tried to resolve the manner to the best of my knowledge.
It still in no way gives the nurse the right to act in the manner of which she did. To act like I have done something wrong when I perform the peanut butter & jelly illusion at the beginning of my show ... it took her about 30 minutes after that to come up to the stage.... she didn't even know if it really was peanut butter.... just assumed.... and then rudely stops my show and orders everyone out like there is some toxic gas flowing through the ventilation.
If there were kids that were going to have an allergic reaction to the soy butter.... they would have swelled up way before she even made it to the stage....
If there was such a bad problem with allergies, i think some responsibility should be taken in notifying the entertainment of such issues....
But you know what... lets just take their side for a moment. Say that they didn't think that a magician would bring some type of peanut butter with them... After all, it is quite an odd item a magician would bring.
But how about a balloon. That's not too odd for a magician. I've met quite a few people with a latex allergy as apposed to a peanut allergy. So the magician begins to blow up the balloon on stage and it pops. Should the nurse throw her body over the audience to shield them from the latex shrapnel?
It's quite ridiculous that you think in some manner that I am being self-centered when I think things could have been handeled differently.
Theres always risks with every activity that humans can do, watch, hear, smell, taste, and touch. I did my best with trying to keep the risks with the Peanut Butter & Jelly illusion minimal. Gather information first to reduce the casualties in a situation. Going into a situation ignorantly can make yourself look like an a**.
