Having A Non-Senior Moment  

, , , | Right | November 27, 2019

(I am at the box office of a movie theater selling tickets for this evening’s showings. A guy in his mid-20s walks in.)

Customer: *in broken English* “How much are senior tickets?”

Me: “They’re $7.99, sir.”

Customer: “Okay, then. I want a ticket to [movie].”

Me: *selects a general ticket for $11.99*

Customer: “How much is it?”

Me: “It’s $11.99.”

Customer: “You said it was $7.99!”

Me: “I said a senior ticket is $7.99; a general ticket is $11.99.”

Customer: *getting very angry* “I want a senior ticket. I always get a senior ticket.”

Me: “A senior ticket is for people who are 65 and over. You are not even close to 65 so I cannot sell you a senior ticket.”

Customer: “I don’t want it, then.” *storms out of the theatre*
