Rated ‘R You Serious?’

| USA | Extra Stupid, Movies & TV

(I work at a movie theater.)

Customer: “Two tickets for [R-rated Movie].”

(The customer looks like a young teenager so I’m required to check his ID first.)

Me: “Sure, if your want to buy the tickets I’m just going to have to look at your ID first.”

Customer: “Come on, man. I’m not old enough.”

Me: “I can’t sell them to you, then. Sorry.”

Customer: “Come on, man.”

Me: “Sorry, dude.”

Customer: “Come on, man.”

Me: “I really can’t…”

Customer: “Come on, man!”

His Friend: “Yeah, I don’t think that’s working.”

Acting Childish

| FL, USA | At The Checkout, Liars & Scammers

(In this story I am the customer buying two tickets to see a popular new movie with my little sister. Note: I am 16 when this takes place.)

Me: “Two kids tickets for [Popular Movie], please!”

Clerk: *gives me confused look* “How old are you?”

Me: “16, but I’m a child at heart.”

Clerk: *laughs* “And will that be for the [next available movie time]?”

Me: “Yes.”

(Needless to say I didn’t get the child ticket.)

They’re As Cold As Icee

| Oklahoma City, OK, USA | Bad Behavior, Food & Drink

(The movie theater I work at has a self-serve soda and ICEE machine. We sell separate cups for ICEEs and sodas for inventory reasons. They cost the same, but the ICEE cups are slightly smaller. The lobby is almost empty. My coworker, who is the ticket taker, sees a couple in their mid-thirties filling up their soda cup with an ICEE.)

Coworker: “Hey guys I’m sorry, but you can only put soda in that cup. We have separate ICEE cups.”

Guest: “Um… EXCUSE ME?”

Coworker: “The large ICEE cup costs the same as the large soda cup. I can just switch it out for you real quick.”

Guest: “I’M PAYING YOU, AREN’T I? I’m just saying we should do whatever we want.”

(Guests proceed to dump out their ICEEs all over the floor, fill up their cups again, and then dump *that* all over the floor and storm to their theater.)
