Some People Just Don’t Get The Ticket

, , , , | Working | November 29, 2019

(My mom is buying us tickets to see a recent superhero blockbuster.)

Mom: “Four tickets for [Movie].”

Cashier: *peers over Mom’s shoulder* “Just you?”

Mom: “No. My family is coming; I just got here early.”

Cashier: “You can’t hold their spot in line. You need to wait until they come.”

(Before my mom can argue more, a supervisor, who has been seated at the next register down, actually slaps their hand against their face before getting up and nudging the worker aside.)

Supervisor: “That was four tickets for [Movie]? Your total is [price].”

(He got Mom the tickets, and then slid the small window cover shut before turning to talk to the cashier. My mom moved to the side and got to wait while the cashier sat down sulkily and occasionally glared over at her while selling more tickets.)
