    Close, But No Cinema

    | Atlanta, GA, USA | Movies & TV

    (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!”
