I work for the administration office for my county. While I don’t typically answer the main phone line, I will if the secretaries are busy on the other lines.

Me: Thank you could calling (county) administration. (My name), how can I help you today?

Citizen: YES, I have a complaint! You people need to stop EVERY movie theater in the county from playing the new Beauty and the Beast movie.

Me: Uhhh… I’m sorry?

Citizen: The new Beauty and the Beast! It has one of them HOMOSEXUALS in it and they are trying to convert my children into being f***s. YOU NEED TO STOP THEM.

(Note: I am gay and am pretty open about it)

Me: I’m sorry, ma’am, but the county does not have that kind of authority. We can not dictate what movies a movie theater does or not show. You need to speak to the movie theaters directly.

Citizen: (screaming at this point) BUT I AM A CHRISTIAN! YOU HAVE TO DO WHAT I SAY! IF YOU DON’T THEN GOD WILL RAIN DOWN DAMNATION UPON YOU! GET OFF YOUR LAZY A** AND STOP THEM FROM SHOWING THAT G***AMN MOVIE!

Me: I’m sorry, there’s really nothing that I can do for you. The county does not have that kind of power.

Citizen: *yelling obscenities*

Me: *hangs up*

Later that afternoon, I saw one of my friends from the police station and he told me all about this “crazy woman who said that you need to be put in jail because you’re in league with Satan.”

I guess having a movie where there is talking pieces of furniture and a woman who falls in love with a non-human/beast is okay, but not a gay character.
