I've been reading everyone's stories for a while and sure I've had a few funny experiences, but this is the first one that left me genuinely speechless enough to warrant a post.
AW for angry woman and me for me.
It's pretty late and close to closing on a Sunday night. My theatre has one of those box office with the window looking out into the parking lot.
I'm finishing up one of the last chapters in my book when I see a woman approaching with a scowl firey enough to boil water.
"Hello ma'm welcome to-"
"There is a car parked next to my driver's side so close that I LITERALLY can't open my door."
"I'm sorry to hea-"
"WHAT DO YOU EXPECT ME TO DO?"
"Is it possible for you to go in through the passanger-"
"*scoff* I CAN'T do that."
"I mean, I'm really sorry but"
"I have his license plate number, what are you going to do about this? Can't you page the theatres so he can move?"
Now we don't have an intercom system in our theatre, presumably so our managers don't feel obliged to fulfill insane requests like this. Or maybe because it would have been a bit more expensive.
Probably the second one.
"I'm sorry ma'm, we don't have an intercom."
I decide to leave out the fact that this is the first full sentence that I've gotten out.
"WHAT KIND OF THEATRE DOESN'T HAVE AN INTERCOM?"
"I'm sorry ma'm, if there was something that I could do, I would but-"
"What do you mean there's something you can do? What can you do? What are you going to do about this?"
"No, I'm saying that I have no problem with helping you but there's literally nothing that I can do."
As she walks away she half turns and points to the only two cars in the far right side of the front parking lot row.
"Just look at it! His car is so close to the line! He didn't give me any room!"
This is what really made the story worth telling. The car with the blocked driver's side is completely over the line while the other car is fairly in the middle.
There was clearance between them. Not a lot, but enough to squeeze through. I decided not to mention my realization that the car "blocking her" was my own.
When I had parked coming back from my break, that spot was empty. I don't know how she got out in the first place but apparently she was unwilling to do it again.
7/10, would get yelled at again for a comedic story.
