    Eyesight Only As Good As Hindsight, Part 2

    | Massachusetts, USA | Movies & TV

    (I’m a projectionist at a movie theater, so every once in a while, I have to deal with customer complaints. We have 3D movies that are extremely blurry if you don’t wear the glasses that we give you.)

    Old woman: “Excuse me, I would like a refund.”

    Me: “Oh, I’m sorry, ma’am. What seems to be the problem?”

    Old woman: *waving 3D glasses at me* “I don’t know how much extra I paid for these stupid things, but my movie wasn’t in 3D!”

    Me: I’m sorry, ma’am. Which movie did you go see?”

    Old woman: “I saw [movie only available in 3D] with my grandson and I didn’t have to use these things at all, not even once!”

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but since you sat through the whole movie, I can’t give you a refund. That movie is also extremely blurry if you don’t use the glasses we give you.”

    Old woman: “But I didn’t use them at all and it looked just fine–just not 3D!”

    (As she storms away angrily with a boy of about 5 in tow, she gets into her car and almost hits a young couple walking across the parking lot on her way out.)
