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!”

Prices Also Listed For Karate Kids

| Mammoth Lakes, CA, USA | Right | August 25, 2010

(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.”

Not Suitable For Those Who Can’t Count

| Edmonton, AB, USA | Right | July 22, 2010

(I work at a theater, and this shift I was in Box Office selling tickets. A customer approaches me who had just got out of a movie.)

Me: “Hi, what can I do for you today?”

Customer: “I would like to lodge a complaint to your manager.”

Me: “She isn’t actually working today, sorry, but if you tell me what you need to complain about, I can make sure it gets passed onto her right away.”

Customer: “I just watched “The A-Team” and it wasn’t at all how I thought it would be. The green people were very blurry!”

Me: “I’m sorry Sir, but there aren’t any green people in the movie “The A-Team”. Are you sure you went into the right auditorium?”

Customer: “What are you talking about? There is only one auditorium in this place!”

Me: “Actually sir, we have five auditoriums, and there are different movies playing in each of them.”

Customer: “Well why didn’t you tell me that! And why was the movie blurry?!”

Me: “Well sir, the only movie we have the green people in it is “Shrek”, and that movie is in 3D, so if you are not wearing the 3D glasses it would be very blurry.”

Customer: “Well, why didn’t you give me that glasses?”

Me: “You didn’t buy a ticket for that movie.”

Customer: “Well if there is only one auditorium, when does my movie play?”

Me: “Sir, your movie is over. You went into the wrong auditorium.”

Customer: “Well, that’s all your fault!”

Me: “I’m very sorry, but how is this my fault?”

Customer: “You didn’t tell me that there is more than one auditorium!”

Me: “When I sold you your ticket I told you were in auditorium 3.”

Customer: “Oh, I just thought you were stupid. So, can I have a refund?”

Another customer in line: “Get out of line, dumba**!”

A Heated Topic, Part 2

| Kinnelon, NJ, USA | Right | July 19, 2010

(A woman and her two younger children go in to see a kid-friendly movie. Ten minutes later she comes up to me.)

Customer: “Excuse me, but there is a preview on right now with a man on fire!”

Me: “A man on fire? Okay, that shouldn’t be the right preview.”

Customer: “This is ridiculous. I have kids in there!”

(I check the theater.)

Me: “Ma’am, this is a preview for Fantastic Four. The man on fire is a super hero. His special ability is that he can turn into a fireball and fly around.”

Customer: “I don’t care who it is, he shouldn’t be on fire!”
