Photo Assistants: Vital or Expendable?

I think assistants should be treated like gaffer tape - just use what you need, tear it with your teeth, slap it into place, throw it away when you're done. 

IOW, camera fodder.

When things get slow on the set, it's especially fun to make your assistant cry in front of the client. 

Just for the sport of it.

Wow. Your attitude about assistants and your photography are about the same. They both suck.
