*Edited for a small mental error*
Well, let me preference this before i continue. At my local theater you can be 17 and buy your own tickets or you can be 18 and over to buy more then one ticket.
But you must have an ID to show this now on to the story-
This happened to me the other day, Deadpool was still getting a lot of business.
So at my theater, we have to ID people some people understand that we have to and quickly hand over their Id's to us so we can check.
Then you have people who don't understand that and complain about it and leave or the fact you can't buy your 12 year old kid a ticket to it and leave then yell at us because you have
to watch the movie with them.
So the night was going on, Then these two teens approach me
*Teen #1: *"Could we get two tickets to deadpool"*
*Me: *"Of course sir, May i just see your Id"*
*They look at each other*
* Teen #1 *"I don't have one, It got suspended"
* Teen#2 *" Told you we should have brought mine"*
* Me: *" Sorry sir, No Id No tickets"*
* Teen#1 *" Come on, i'm 25. They took my id and drove away with it"
* Me: *" Sorry sir, Those are the rules. No Id no tickets"
* Teen#1 *" Okay,we'll be back"
* Me: *"okay sir"
20 mins later their at in my bosses line, They bought tickets. My gut says keep an eye on them. Good thing to they walked right into Deadpool, so i asked my boss
* me: *" Boss, what tickets did those kids buy"*
* Boss: *" Zootopia"*
* Me: *" Well, they just walked into deadpool, i'll be right back"*
So i walked into the theater just as they sat down at the very top row, I stood there for a moment. Thinking maybe if they saw me, they would come to their sense and go to the right move.
I was wrong. So i walked up the stairs and approached them
*Them at the same time: *" Shit"*
*Me: * "How are y'all, can i see y'alls tickets"*
*Teen#2 *" We threw them away.."*
*Me: *" Oh really?, well lets me just tell you that you're in the wrong theater, so y'all could go to the right theater or leave"*
*Teen #1: *" Cant we just watch this movie man"*
*Me: *" Sorry, can't let you and i've already told my Boss that you're in here"
*Teen#2: *" Why did you do that"*
( I was shocked when he asked that, actually had to keep a straight face)
*Me: *" Well, it;s my job"*
They started to raise their voice so, i asked them calmly to follow me outside so we can continue to talk. While outside, He repeated the same story " my id was taken blah blah blah..".
So eventually he caught on to the fact that i would not allow them to watch the movie with out the proper Id, so he asked to talk to the Boss.
I let him and they told them the same thing i told them. So they spent about 20 mins trying to get an id sent to him via text or what ever to verify that he was over 18 and he was.
So, he got tickets and went in.
My only thought was, he could have done that in the first place and missed none of his movie, Yet he did not and he misses the first 10 mins. People still surprise me
