    Yes, Let’s All Just Make Up Our Own Rules

    | Lubbock, TX, USA | Uncategorized

    (I work as a box office cashier and Saturday nights are the best due to funny things like this.)

    Lady: “I need two for 27 Dresses.”

    Me: “I’m sorry but the 7:20 is sold out. Our next one is at 10:00.”

    Lady: “Seriously? It’s sold out?”

    Me: “Yes, ma’am.”

    Lady: “So there aren’t any more seats?”

    Me: “No seats.”

    Lady: “What if I went and bought concessions?”

    Me: “Then you would have concessions, I suppose.”

    Lady: “I mean, if I bought stuff from inside, I can get seats right?”

    Me: “No. You’ll just have popcorn and soda.”

    Lady: “Are you sure?”

    Me: “Well typically when you get concessions, you end up with popcorn and soda.”

    Lady: “Yes. That’s true.”

    Me: “Can I ask you to step aside so I can help some other people if you aren’t ready to select another movie?”

    Lady: “Oh, yes! I’m sorry! I’ll be right back.”

    (About ten minutes pass and she comes back with a guy, popcorn and soda.)

    Lady: “Hi! Remember me? I need two for 27 Dresses at 7:20.”

    Me: “Um…I’m sorry, but that’s still sold out.”

    Lady: “But, I thought you said if I bought popcorn and soda, I could see it!”

    Me: *blink blink*

    Guy:: “HEY! IF you told her she could see it if she got food, then sell her the tickets!”

    Me: “Okay, fine. Just warning you there are only eight seats in the thea–”

    Guy:: “SELL US THE SEATS.”

    Me: “Okie dokie. $16.50, please.”

    Guy:: “WHAT? Oh, f*** that. Come on. The movie costs more than the food. Let’s just go rent something.”

    Lady: “But will the rental store have it?”

    Me: “There’s a Blockbuster right there. Go bug them.”
