, , , , | Not Always Right | Right | April 1, 2012

Prank You Very Much! Happy April Fools’ Day, readers! This week, we share five stories that show the foolish hazards of pulling a fast one!

  1. Impractical Jokes:
    Guys, take note: a fake stabbing to freak out your wife might result in a real stabbing—by your wife!
  2. Bohemian Nobody:
    Customer, oo-oo-oo-ooh // Didn’t mean to make you cry // If you’re not back again this time tomorrow // Go away, go away // Your pranks don’t really matter…
  3. Prankin’ Like It’s 1929:
    This elderly caller’s prank is probably older than your grandparents, but he proves laughter IS the best medicine—especially when it’s at your expense!
  4. Your Prank Got Spanked, Part 2:
    A caller learns the hard way that if you’re gonna prank an employee, at least be original!
  5. Morbid Curiosity Killed The Cat:
    Note to prank callers: your cat is NOT a get-out-of-jail-free card!

Then Again, They’re Not Wearing Pants

| Yuma, AZ, USA | Right | March 26, 2012

Me: “Welcome to [theater name].”

Customer: “Two tickets to Chippendales.”

Me: *brief moment of silence* “Um…what?”

Customer: “I said I would like two tickets for Alvin and the Chippendales!”

Me: “Do you mean Alvin and the Chipmunks?”

Customer: “Whatever, just give me two tickets to that movie!”

3D Or Not, Time Is Still Linear

| California, USA | Right | March 23, 2012

(I work in a box office at a movie theater.)

Customer: “Is there a non-3D showing of Green Hornet at 6:45?”

Me: “No, it’s at 8:00.”

Customer: “When’s the next non-3D one?”

Me: “8:00.”

Customer: “There’s not one at 6:45?”

Me: “No, it’s at 8:00.”

Customer: “Oh…I looked up the 3D show instead of the regular one. So, wait, when’s the next non-3D showing of Green Hornet?”

Me: “8:00…”

Treating Workers Like Garbage

| Knoxville, TN, USA | Right | March 15, 2012

(I am working the concessions stand when a young woman and her small daughter approach my register.)

Me: “Hi! Welcome to [theater]. How can I help you today?”

Customer: “I’ll take a medium popcorn and drink, please.”

(The customer pays and I hand her the popcorn and drink.)

Customer: “Hey, do you have a trash can back there?”

Me: “Absolutely!”

(I hold out my hand for the trash, expecting it to be something innocuous.)

Daughter: *spits her gum out in my hand, drool and all*

Please Don’t Get P’ed Off

| North Carolina, USA | Right | March 5, 2012

(I’m walking towards a children’s movie to clean it out after the show. A woman and her son walk out and wave me over.)

Me: “Yes, ma’am? How can I help you?”

Customer: “I’m sorry, but my son had an accident in your theater.”

Me: “What kind of accident?”

Customer: “He peed in the seat. He was so busy watching the movie that he forgot to go.”

Me: “I understand. If you could just tell me which seats you were sitting in, I’ll go clean them out.”

Customer: “The ones with the pee in the seat, I think…”
