Re: Strange little professional problem
I had to look up what "dep" means (us Yanks, ya know) :)
I would not expect to have to share rehearsal costs for a band if I'm standing in for their regular drummer. It's just professional courtesy. You're helping them out because their drummer can't make the gig. The least they can do is cover your share of the rehearsal costs. If anything, the drummer you're subbing for should be covering it!
