Not Quite Catching On

, , , , | Right | October 26, 2010

(This was back when the movie “Catch Me If You Can” came out. The movie poster has two large blue arrows pointing in different directions.  A man buys a ticket and goes down the hallway to the theater. We see him again, walking the other way and looking angry. Finally, he comes up to the counter.)

Me: “May I help you, sir?”

Customer: “Yes, where are you showing this movie?” *waves the ticket in my face*

Me: “Just down that hallway, sir… The second door.”

Customer: “Don’t give me that! I followed the arrows on the poster, and they led me to the bathroom and then a closet!”

(A customer walks up holding a large red bag of popcorn to be refilled.)

Customer: “Hi, could I please get a refill?”

Me: “Did you buy this popcorn today?”

Customer: “Yes.”

Me: “Oh, that’s weird, because we stopped selling these popcorn bags a month ago. We have black bags now.”

Customer: “Oh…”

Thankful For A Thankless Job

, , , , , | Right | September 20, 2010

(I am working behind the concession stand on Thanksgiving day.)

Me: “How can I help you?”

Customer: “Can I buy some of that food over there?”

(They point to the employee’s Thanksgiving food we have to eat between shows.)

Me: “No, sir, I’m sorry. It’s not for sale.”

Customer: “Why not? That’s ridiculous.”

Me: “Our families brought us that food for Thanksgiving since we have to be here instead of celebrating with them. I can’t sell it to you.”

Customer: “You’re so selfish!”

Customer: “Two.”

Me: “For which movie?”

Customer: *silence*

Me: “Which movie would you like to see?”

Customer: *silence*

Me: “Can you hear me?”

Customer: “Yes, I said two!”

Me: “I heard that, but you have to tell me which movie you want to see before I can sell you a ticket.”

Customer: “Oh, I have to pick one?”

Me: “Yes.”

Customer: “Well, how should I know what I want to see? I haven’t seen any of them yet!”

(The movie theater is small and only shows two movies. This week we were playing Grown Ups and another movie. A customer stands outside the box office looking very confused.)

Me: “Can I help you?”

Customer: “I’m confused about the movie times.”

(I print out the movie schedule and hand it to her. She looks at it for a minute but still looks lost.)

Customer: “No, it doesn’t help. It shows the times that you let the grown-ups in, but it says nothing about the children.”
