Was Going For Cinematic Dramatism

(I am a customer overhearing this exchange. The time is 6:45, and the movie starts at 7:00. It’s the opening weekend of a huge blockbuster, so we’re all waiting in line.)

Lady: “They say there’s a 15-minute wait! They’re going to make us stand around for fifteen minutes!”

(No one says anything.)

Lady: *louder, to the crowd* “THEY’RE GOING TO MAKE US WAIT ANOTHER FIFTEEN MINUTES! ARE WE GOING TO STAND FOR THIS, EVERYONE?!”

(No one responds. She does this four or five more times.)

Me: “IF YOU DIDN’T WANT TO WAIT FIFTEEN MINUTES, DON’T SHOW UP FIFTEEN MINUTES EARLY!”

(The lady slinked off back to her place in line, while everyone else laughed.)
