    And Don’t Watch ‘Final Destination’ Before Boarding Either

    | Preston, England, UK | Employees, Movies & TV, Tourists & Travel

    (I am waiting for my prescription and happen to overhear a conversation between a customer and cashier:)

    Customer: “Oh, I’m going travelling round Europe.”

    Cashier: “Oooh, have you ever seen the film Hostel?”

    Customer: “No…”

    Cashier: “Don’t watch it.”

    What Is This Channel Madness?!

    | AL, USA | Employees, Ignoring/Inattentive, Movies & TV

    (I am on the online help support chat. I don’t currently have any television service, and I have contacted them to see about ordering certain channels.)

    Me: “Do you offer channels ala carte? I don’t want to pay for 300 channels just to get the three I might actually want.”

    Chat agent: “Which channel did you want?”

    Me: “It’s [premium channel].”

    Chat agent: “That channel is available in our U300 package!”

    Me: *head-desk*

    DVDim

    | Wayne, PA, USA | Employees, Movies & TV

    (When a popular kids’ cartoon video series has a new DVD out with one of the main characters in an Indiana-Jones-like outfit, I make sure the 4-foot tall cardboard cutout of this character in the middle of the sales floor is full of DVDs. A customer approaches the counter.)

    Customer: “Excuse me, do you have the new [Series Name] DVD?”

    Me: “Yes, ma’am. The large cardboard cucumber over there is holding it for you.”

    Fifty Shades Of Dorian Grey

    | Cardiff, Wales, UK | Coworkers, Movies & TV

    (During a quiet moment, a coworker mentions that he is getting a Kindle and is getting some recommendations for books. We suggest checking out Amazon’s free book section where you can download classic books and novels for nothing. My suggestions eventually reached ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ by Oscar Wilde.)

    Coworker: “Wasn’t there a film adaptation recently?”

    Me: *checking on IMDb as I thought the only one was the 1945 one* “Yes, you’re right. There’s one from 2009 starring Colin Firth.”

    Second Coworker: *overhearing* “What? Back then they made a ’50 Shades’ film?”

    Me: “Dorian Gray. This is actual literature.”

    The Great Gummi Massacre

    | Atlanta, GA, USA | Bosses & Owners, Food & Drink, Movies & TV

    Me: “Looks like another movie let out. Want me to go in and clean it?”

    Manager: “Dunno. There weren’t a lot of customers in there.”

    Me: “Yeah, but sometimes just a handful of people will leave a big mess.”

    Manager: “True. Go in there and check, and if there is a mess, go and clean it.”

    (I go in and come back out about a minute later.)

    Manager: “How was it?”

    Me: *as I grab a broom and dustpan* “Gummi bears… lying here and there and everywhere…”
