    Sigh... I'm working a Door shift at the movie theatre tomorrow....

    I get to stand on my feet in one place for 7 hours strait, ripping people's tickets.

    The standing for 7 hours isn't even the bad part. The bad part? People. Some people are too dumb to breathe, why even go to the movies? While at Door, people will ask you stupid questions, annoy you, harass you, try to sneak in, ask you to "hook them up."

    God. It's horrible. I get the question "Where do I validate my parking ticket?" 6 million times in one day, even with the huge sign a couple of feet away.

    One time I was in front of a theatre checking tickets for an R rated movie, and some old lady walked out of the theatre, she said "Can i come back in without my ticket stub?" I said "Um... your supposed to have it with you."

    So what did I do? I tried to be nice. I said "Well i guess i could try and remember you." What did she say? "Well, what if I smacked you upside your stupid head? Would you remember me then?" and walked away.

    An old lady man, in her 60's and everything, I wanted to stab the stupid bitch. People suck man, people suck. I always get morons bringing in food from outside, then I get the classic line... "WHAT DO YOU MEAN I CANT BRING FOOD IN?!" .... it's a movie theatre asshole, what did you expect? Jeez.

    So then you refuse to let them in, because your not allowed to, then they refuse to move, so the line gets held up. So your forced to let them in, then the managers get mad at you for letting them in with food. Hell, it's a lose lose situation.

    Grrr.... 7 hours man, standing there... listening to idiots... and teenangers with short attention spans that hand you their ticket and walk away without the stub... and 60 year old lady's who threaten to smack you.... and people who are too dumb to stick a parking ticket inside a little blue box properly.

    Sigh... I need a new job...

    Sorry... had to get that out...

    Most jobs would be great (except accountant) if it weren't for the people.

    I know what you mean. Too many mouth-breathers are spoiling my summer job as well. I just can't believe they make people that stupid.

    Things that wind me up include: not having your money ready when I serve you and then taking ages to find your wallet/purse/cash, taking ages to move away from the till area after the transaction thus creating a huge queue, the "just one more thing" mouth-breathers who end up adding 10 "just one more things". And children, I fucking hate children.

    Still, some of the single mothers are hawt.

    working with the public in general blows ass man. people individually can be great, but in a group can be so fucking dumb. i worked in a walmart-type store for 2 years in high school and i would have not minded that job one bit if i could have removed all the customers.

    I know exactly what you mean. I used to work at a movie theater do that same shit. Trust me...that's one of easiest jobs there..besides ushering. You DON'T WANT TO DO THE CONCESSION STAND!!!!111!1!!

    I had it a little worse....I worked at a hood movie theater.

    Not only did I have the problems you had, I had to deal with "fighting" attitudes (well you did have the old lady) when folks didn't there way.

    At 2 in the morning the last movies were letting out and this one fella wanted to hang around and go into other theaters so I said "You have to exit this way". He just LOST IT and chased me around the concession stand (it was a circle in the middle of the lobby). When he couldn't catch me (I was fast ) he said "Wait 'till you get outside motherfucker."



    Another time, this white fella (he was the only white fella that worked there) named Patrick was working and I was in the theater watching a movie for free (not working). I watched about the 3 three fellas movie hop in then I saw skinny frail Patrick come in there, see the fellas and came up to their seats and said "Excuse me guys. You didn't pay for this movie and you are going to have t...." CRACK...one fellas cracked him across the jaw and they ran out of the theater.

    Patrick was floored of course.

    Your situation is lightweight. Tell the folks either abide the rules or GTFO and STFO. They don't seem to give you THAT much trouble...well except for old ladies....but I think you could take 'em if ya had ta.

    True.

    Yeah, all those things also piss me off in the concession stand. People who take a whole 5 minutes looking for their wallet/purse, damn just have your stupid money out already! Kids suck the most. I'll be ripping tickets, and there will be a huge line building up, and a group of like 10 eight year old kids would show up, then all hand me their ticket one by one! If your all together, just hand me your tickets all at once you stupid morons. 10 stupid kids, all with the same tickets... theatre 3... strait ahead.... theatre 3... strait ahead.... theatre.... oh hell with it, same place as your friend man. I hate that, saying the same thing, over and over, I feel like a stupid robot.

    Shhhhh....

    Yeah... don't get me wrong... some people can be really nice, or really cool. But most people, especially in groups... just idiots man...

    Jeez. See this is why I run by my "I don't give a shit policy." If I'm at door checking tickets... and I see a person sneak in, and there isn't a manager around... what do I do? Nothing. Who cares, I'm not the guy losing money. Poor Patrick man... thats why I don't care... people are crazy. People will snap on you. I've never had anyone really threathen me, I consider myself lucky.

    People could come up to me while I'm ripping tickets, and say "Yeah I'm just gonna use the bathroom, I'll be back." Then I'll see them strait out walk into a theatre, and I won't say anything. Who cares? I don't get paid enough to stop people from sneaking in, I make $6.95 man, and I've been working there for a year and a half. In that year in a half, I've gotten two raises, 10 cents each time.

    Well, 3 hours until I have to go to work. Damn. One of these days, I'm going to get so upset while at work, and quit on the spot. One day... I'm literally going to snap at someone, and yell something like "Hey asshole! Why don't you take your parking ticket... and shove it up your ass huh? The validation machine is right over there you stupid shit, do you not see the huge sign? ...dumbass."

    See what people do to you...
