(I am an assistant-manager at my movie theater and I am working at our customer service desk. Part of my job is to answer the phone and answer customer questions.)

Me: “Thank you for calling [theater]. How may I help you today?”

Customer: “Yes, can you tell me what the next showtime for Mission Impossible is?”

Me: “7:30.”

Customer: “Have you seen it yet?”

Me: “No, sir, I haven’t.”

Customer: “Well, do you know if it has real ghosts in it?”

Me: “Ghosts, sir?”

Customer: “Yeah, because it’s called Ghost Protocol.”

Me: “Uh, no, sir. There are no ghosts in that movie.”

Customer: “Okay, thank you.” *hangs up*
