Pointing out the Obvious

by batkevn

Before I was a manager, I took to pointing out customer stupidity in an obvious, but pleasant way. I was left to my own devices and wandered each area of the theater helping wherever was needed.

One such weekday (ie, slow day), I see a group of regulars (teens) walk into the hallway and turn where their backs are now facing me.

One of them points out the auditorium which was showing Texas Chainsaw Massacre and they quickly dart in.

I already intended on following them in to check their tickets, but they quickly realized this auditorium was shared with showing of the Clifford (of the Big Red Dog variety) movie.

They exit the auditorium as I am about 10 feet away, so I asked if they needed help finding anything. "Oh... Um...

Just wondering when this movie comes out (pointing to 8' standee of the Day After Tomorrow)." Me, pointing about waist high, "May 28th..." "Oh, cool... Thanks."

Some time later, I am working in box office, when someone cuts in front of the line to ask what time a specific movie starts.

Now, this is pretty dickish for cutting alone, however, a few feet behind them is a wall displaying the times, as well as directly over my head, which can be seen from the back of the line.

I spin around in my chair and point to the exact next time and make eye contact with them. They sheepishly walked away.

If there wasn't a line, I would have slowly scanned each movie until I found what they wanted.

Now, since "life always finds a way", some karmic justice was served. I'm at McDonald's with some friends, and I decide I want a McFlurry. For the life of me, I couldn't find the price.

At the counter, I asked the cashier how much a McFlurry costs. He slowly turns, takes to 3 steps to my right, and points at the price.

I could only laugh, then gave the guy a high-five, which caused his glare to turn into a smile. I guess I couldn't turn my head to the left that day...
