So a tale from another sub made me remember this rather fun exchange.
A group of us from the college campus wanted to see a movie.
So we figured out how we could all fit in the limited number of cars that we had (11 people in 2 vehichles) and headed down to the local theater.
I had one friend (BF) in my car who kept talking about how his brother worked at the theater back home and he would see a lot of movies because of it.
I get my ticket and around 2 people back is BF.
He starts to panic that he can't find his money so he starts pulling stuff out of his pockets and sets a can of pop right there on the ticket counter.
>Theater worker: Ummm .... yeah you can't take that in. We don't allow outside food or drink.
>BF: Oh yeah sorry I'm used to the theater back home.
He gets his ticket and most of us hear the THUNK of the can hitting the garbage.
Me: You did know you aren't supposed to bring in outside stuff right?
BF: Yeah, like I said my brother works at the theater at home and he lets me bring stuff in all the time. I just forgot.
Over 10 years ago and I can still picture the surprised and dumbstruck look on that worker's face.
