Making A Big Concession To Customers

| CA, USA | Family & Kids, Movies & TV, Uncategorized

 (I’m helping a middle aged man carry the items he bought from the concession stand to his theater.)
 
Me: “So, who are you here with?”
 
Customer: “My son.”
 
(We walk into the theater, and the man sees his son.)
 
Customer: “Son, look what I brought you! A girl!”

Date Fright

| Springville, UT, USA | Food & Drink, Movies & TV, Uncategorized

(I’m hosting and whenever I seat a table, I put an ‘X’ next to the server who got the table so that all the servers get the same amount of tables. Two women walk in.)

Me: “Hello, how many for you today?”

Woman 1: “Just the two.”

Me: *marking the next server* “Well, if you just want to follow me.”

Woman 2: “That wasn’t our name!”

Me: “What?”

Woman 2: “We didn’t have a reservation. That wasn’t us!”

Me: “Oh, I was just marking the server you’ll be having today.”

Woman 1: “Sorry, we just saw Date Night and they took someone’s reservation and almost died!”

Close, But No Cinema

| Atlanta, GA, USA | Movies & TV, Uncategorized

(I’m working the outside ticket counter and an elderly woman comes up to buy a ticket.)

Customer: “I want a ticket to see [movie].”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am. That movie’s not showing here.”

Customer: “Yes, you do. I’d like a ticket, please.”

Me: “No, ma’am, we’re not showing that. Did you see it listed in the paper? Sometimes some of the titles get switched around.”

Customer: “No. I saw the commercial for it and it said it was ‘showing at a theater near you’, and this is the closest theater to my house!”

H2-Woah

| Sydney, Australia | Money, Movies & TV, Uncategorized

(At the cinema the water is really expensive, the bottle we sell costs $5.10 but anywhere else it would be $2.)

Me: “Hi what can I get you?”

Customer: “I’ll just grab a water thanks.”

Me: “Sure, that’ll be $5.10.”

Customer: *shocked* “$5.10!?”

Me: “Yeah, sorry, just our prices.”

Customer: “But it’s water. You know that s*** comes from the sky right?”

Totally, Like, Excruciatus

| Hazel Grove, NY, USA | Books & Reading, Geeks Rule, Movies & TV, School

(Two girls enter the bookstore. I recognize them as being two ditzy girls from my English class.)

Me: “Hey, [Girl 1] and [Girl 2], what’s up? I didn’t think you guys liked hanging out in bookshops?”

Girl 1: *giggles* “Duh! Did you like think that we’re geeks or something?”

Girl 2: “Like, duh, I’m just looking for this book for my sister.”

(Said sister happens to be one of my good friends.)

Me: “Oh, what book does Jen want?”

Girl 2: “It’s like, this book with some totally geeky wizards or something.”

Me: “Do you mean Harry Potter? She’s already got those books.”

Girl 2: “Like, no duh! It’s like, written by some totally old-ish chick named Jane or something. It’s like, about this chick named Emma.”

Me:Emma by Jane Austen hasn’t got any wizards.”

Girl 2: “Ain’t Emma that witch or something? That nerdy, bushy-haired one?”

Me: “That’s Hermione Granger. Her actress is Emma Watson.”

Girl 2: *huffing* “What-EVER! I’m like, so totally out of here, you geek!”
