We Have No Power, Starring Samuel L. Jackson

| | Right | September 23, 2008

(During a major power outage that left all of Cincinnati in the dark for days, a woman calls the theater asking about movie times.)

Customer: “Hi, what movies do you have playing today?”

Me: “None, we don’t have electricity.”

Customer: “And what time does that start?”

Me: “Ma’am, we aren’t open.”

Customer: “That’s too early, what else you got?”


Customer: “I heard that was no good.”

Me: “We can’t show movies because we have no power!”

Customer: “Is that the movie with Samuel L Jackson?”

Me: *gives up* “Yes, ma’am. It starts at 6pm but you might want to be here early because it gets crowded this time of day.”

    If there is no electricity, how and why are people there working?

      Landlines can still function during outages, actually. It’s a way to keep a way to contact emergency services.

      Edit: and for the real question (misread yours) How many stupid bosses have we seen on this site again?

        These days, with all lines being converted to fibre optics, you have no phone unless you have internet.
