That’s The Way The Cookie Grumbles

| Chesapeake, VA, USA | Food & Drink

(I work at a movie theater that sells a popular brand of cookies. On weekends, we often sell out faster than we can bake. On this day, we are sold out.)

Customer: “Do you have any cookies prepared?”

Me: “No, ma’am, but—”

Customer: “Let me speak to your manager!”

(The manager is in the area and overhears.)

Manager: “What can I help you with?”

Customer: “I was told you don’t have any cookies!”

Manager: “None that are ready to eat, but there are some in the—”

Customer: “You should keep them stocked! If I can keep my cookie oven stocked, so can you! I only come to the theater for the cookies!”

Manager: “Ma’am, I swear on my honor as a man that we will have cookies ready the next time you come in.”

Customer: “You better!”

(After she leaves, he dubs the woman the Cookie Monster. Now, whenever we run out of cookies, it’s a running joke to say “Hurry and bake more before the Cookie Monster comes for us!”)

You Read My Mind

| Lake Zurich, IL, USA | At The Checkout, Food & Drink

(I’m working the concession stand at the local movie theater when two teenage girls approach.)

Me: “Hello, how can I help you?”

Customer #1: “Yes, I’d like a large.”

Me: “A large what?”

Customer #1: *glares angrily* “A large POP.”

Me: *stares at her and smiles*

Customer #1: *angrily* “What?!”

Customer #2: “Tell him what kind of pop.”

Customer #1: *laughs* “Oh my God, I’m so blonde!”

Less Twilight, More Daylight, Part 8

| Alabama, USA | Funny Names

(A coworker and I are walking around the theater seeing if anything needs to be done. A woman and about 6 children are walking down the hallway. One of the young girls starts running around.)

Customer: “Bella! Bella! Stop running, Bella! Bella!”

(She looks at her young son who is behaving well and pats him on the head.)

Customer: “Good job, Edward.”

Me: *speechless*

Coworker: “I wonder what the others are named.”
