Some People Just Want To Watch The World Burn: The Movie

, , , , , | Right | July 22, 2022

I work in a movie theater. It was a holiday. Our prime-time rush had just ended, and most of the staff went on break while I handled the lobby alone.

A customer came in a full half-hour after the scheduled showtime and bought a ticket despite being told his movie had already started. He said he didn’t care.

I then sold him a large popcorn for $10. The customer literally watched me bring fresh popcorn out, straight from the popper, and serve it to him. He was quite happy because he was getting brand-new popcorn.

I then tore his ticket and directed him to his theater, which was the first theater on his right.

I didn’t see him for the rest of the night. At the end of the night, my manager came out and said she was quite pleased, as she didn’t field any customer complaints the whole night. This was a nice change of pace since, usually, people are edgy and rude on holidays and more likely to complain.

The next day, I was bored and decided to check our Google reviews and was greeted by a review from the same guy I had served.

It was a one-out-of-five review where the customer said:

  • He missed part of his movie and it was our fault.
  • He paid $50 for popcorn.
  • The popcorn he was given was stale.
  • He was sent to the wrong theater.
  • When he went to the manager to complain, she was unhelpful and rude.

It was literally the exact opposite of what had happened.

I genuinely hate people sometimes.
