    Pick It Before The Ticket

    | Canada | Top

    (A girl comes up to my till. She’s fake tanned with bleached hair and nails so long she can barely text while she talks to me.)

    Customer: “I need one ticket.”

    Me: “Sure, what movie?”

    Customer: “Just one ticket, please.”

    Me: “Yes, but I need to know which movie the ticket is for.”

    Customer: “What? Why can’t you just give me a ticket?”

    Me: “Because I have to select what movie to give you a ticket for before I can print it out.”

    Customer: “It’s a funny one with that guy. Just get me a ticket to it.”

    Me: “We have several comedies right now. You’ll have to be more specific.”

    Customer: “Do you know how to do your job? Give me a ticket and I’ll tell you what movie I’m seeing after!”

    Me: “That’s not how it works. I’m sorry.”

    Customer: “Fine! Let me go see what movie my friends want to see.”

    (She goes over to a group of girls who are all dressed exactly like her and texting on their phones. She comes back a couple minutes later.)

    Customer: “The movie we’re seeing is [movie title].”

    Me: “We’re not showing that movie here.”

    Customer: “Why didn’t you tell me that before?”
