Pick It Before The Ticket

, , | Right | April 13, 2011

(A girl comes up to my till. She’s fake tanned with bleached hair and nails so long she can barely text while she talks to me.)

Customer: “I need one ticket.”

Me: “Sure, what movie?”

Customer: “Just one ticket, please.”

Me: “Yes, but I need to know which movie the ticket is for.”

Customer: “What? Why can’t you just give me a ticket?”

Me: “Because I have to select what movie to give you a ticket for before I can print it out.”

Customer: “It’s a funny one with that guy. Just get me a ticket to it.”

Me: “We have several comedies right now. You’ll have to be more specific.”

Customer: “Do you know how to do your job? Give me a ticket and I’ll tell you what movie I’m seeing after!”

Me: “That’s not how it works. I’m sorry.”

Customer: “Fine! Let me go see what movie my friends want to see.”

(She goes over to a group of girls who are all dressed exactly like her and texting on their phones. She comes back a couple of minutes later.)

Customer: “The movie we’re seeing is [movie title].”

Me: “We’re not showing that movie here.”

Customer: “Why didn’t you tell me that before?”
