    Dry

    Am I the only guy who has shit like this happen to him? At work today, I was at the theatre inside the box office. It was me and like 3 other people, all inside the box office, which is like a locked room, with the glass in front of customers.

    So I'm standing there, minding my own business. When out of nowhere, some person comes up to the glass... takes a good look at me for about 10 seconds... and says "When you get off, I'm going to kill you." with the most serious facial expression. He just said it, and left.

    I thought to myself... "god dammit, what did I do now?"

    People in LA man, you never know, some people are just crazy, and now he knows where I work too.....

    ... fuck.

    From Armenia, in LA.

    Maybe I should buy some pepper spray to carry, or a knife.

    EDIT: @Heavy
    Do people in the east threaten to kill you before giving you pie?

    Bloody 'ell.

    I worked in a supermarket, and was asked to take a fraudulent cheque from one of the known townie crims. When I refused, he said he was coming back to slit my throat. Scared the pants off me. I also had a drunk that I refused to serve, come back to throw bricks/stones at the window I was working next to. Someone also slit my tyres that night, which I'm sure had something to do with the guy.

    Just make sure your manager, and more importantly the security guards know about the threat, and try not to let they bastard fret you.

    Holy crap.

    Someone threatened to slit your throat? Thats horrible.

    I'd probibly be nervous if someone was throwing bricks at the glass in box office, stupid non bullet proof glass.

    I'm glad nothing happened to ya. I don't know if I should tell my managers, they might make a really big deal about it...

    Always make your management team aware of whats happening.
    Here we have a known shoplifter/aggrovator list that goes around town centre facilities which normally have a cb link to the police. I imagine it's the same there. If not at least you are making them aware of someone to keep an eye on, if not only for your own safety.

    Working with the public is generally great, until a few assholes spoil it.
    Don't let the few eejits get the better of you.

    Since you were at the ticket window, I assume they have cameras? If you tell youe manager, then they can save that tape in case something happens to give the cops.

    I don't know if it is the same here. It's people like this that make me hate working with the public...

    @Skizo
    Oh yeah, we do have cameras. I just might let management know, see if they'll review the tape.

    This is the first time a customer at work said he was going to kill me. Jeez.

    @Rip
    i think it was a seriously paranoid european movie critic
    who really despises the work produced by Hollywood.
    and after travelling in a container (to save money) on a tanker for 8months
    it got tossed into the sea during a storm

    2 months later the container finally drifted onto the shores of malibu beach
    where some surfers opened it in hope of dope
    only to find 5000000000 bad chinese copies of jeff strykers dildo and a seriously angry dude

    he waddled into LA
    found the first movie theatre he could find
    and.....
    found
    you


    don't take it personal (yeah right)


    you are in a way an ambassador of Hollywood in your position (and deserve a raise)
    anyway i hope he is happier after releaving his blind frustration

    iv only seen 2D moving images of la and that is one serious warped place, geographically, socially, automobilly and all three bounce on each other.

    how thick is that glass exactly?

    noone desrves that type of treatment for nothing
