Default Craziest request ever made of you as a photographer

I was was recently asked to shoot a person standing in the dark waiting to go on stage. I'm supposed to be standing in the hallway that led to the place the subject was waiting.

The hallway, was lit by several windows that faced the sun, and you need sunglasses in that hallway because the sun is so bright.

I was then told I could not use a flash for the photo.

For my next feat, I'll take a photo of a black cat in a dark room that isn't there.

I've had a bunch of difficult requests in regards to Photography but the one that I remember the most was trying to get an image of a fat moving brush fire with winds of 40mph. They (forestry department) wanted me to stand on top of a flatbed truck that was used to bring in the fire tractor and just being able to stay standing up was a challenge. They need me to get high up so I could look out over the ridge and get a wide angle shot. and too top that off I didn't have a tripod on me..... I jump on a firetruck eariler in the day to get to the fire with just my camera bag and firegear never figured I'd need a tripod.......
