    You And Me Could Write A Bipartisan Romance

    | Durham, NC, USA | Movies & TV, Politics, Top

    (I am the first person to arrive at work in the morning, and I answer a call as soon as I walk into the door.)

    Caller: “Finally! I have been calling since 5 am! You people should be ashamed. I have an emergency!”

    Me: “I’m sorry. No one gets here until 10 am most days. How can I help you?”

    Caller: “I have a serious problem! My daughter has planned to have a date sometime today at your theater, and I told her she was not allowed to go! I need you to cancel her ticket!”

    (I see no pre-sales for the day at all.)

    Me: “No one has bought a ticket so far for today, so I can’t really help. Maybe you should just make her stay home?”

    Caller: “Well, I can’t do that. She lives in her own place and I can’t get over there in time to stop her.”

    Me: “Just how old is your daughter anyway?”

    Caller: “She’s 28.”

    Me: “Ma’am, she’s an adult and I cannot refuse her a ticket because you do not approve of her date.”

    Caller: “You don’t understand! He’s a Democrat!”
