Ain't it the truth. I've only done one fairly small local comp, but I couldn't believe what some spectators would do or say. One guy actually reached into the bowl I was using to sauce my pork and tried to grab a hunk without even asking. He got yelled at. My patience is tested by stupidity but it ends at rudeness. I guess the lesson here is to expect the unexpected from the public and set up your prep area so that you can have a little seperation from passers by.
