    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…”

    A Yippee-Kay-Aye Work Day

    | Washington, DC, USA | Employees, Geeks Rule, Movies & TV

    (I press the button for the elevator and wait to go down to lunch. A couple seconds later the doors of the far elevator start to open, but awkwardly. I look and notice there are two workmen on top of the elevator car, which is about halfway down the opening, as they try to fix something. One workman is mostly hidden from view, but the second sees me looking at them.)

    Workman #1: “Don’t mind us. We’re just filming Die Hard 10.”

    Workman #2: *to Workman #1* “You’re an idiot.”

    A Dream Is A Wish Your Hulk Makes

    | UK | Awesome Workers, Employees, Movies & TV

    (My sister and I are out to see ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron.’ I happen to be wearing an Avengers shirt, have my Avengers bag with me, and am carrying a Hulk plush toy because I get nervous around crowds. We get to the front of the line to buy tickets.)

    Sister: “Okay, hang on.” *pulls me into the cashier’s line of sight* “Guess which movie we want to see?

    Cashier: “Oh, I know. Cinderella, right? I’ve heard Hulk is great in that!”

    (She rang us up for our ‘Age of Ultron’ tickets, and told me my Hulk was cute!)

    The Ticket To A Productive Conversation

    | Spain | Movies & TV

    (I see a voucher in a magazine offering two free tickets for a specific movie. I decide to go by myself.)

    Me: *hands the voucher to the ticket clerk* “One ticket for [Film], please.”

    Ticket Clerk: *looks at voucher* “This is for two tickets.”

    Me: “Yes, but I only need one.”

    Ticket Clerk: “But the voucher says two tickets.”

    Me: “I know, but I’ve come all alone. Just one ticket for me, please.”

    Ticket Clerk: “But it’s for TWO tickets!”

    Me: *giving up* “Fine, just give me two tickets for [Film], but I’ll only use one, okay?”

    Ticket Clerk: “Oh. Just one ticket for [Film], then.”

    A Meaty Topic Of Conversation

    | TX, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Bosses & Owners, Movies & TV

    Direct Supervisor: “Did you ever see the movie Alive?”

    Me: “Yeah…?”

    Direct Supervisor: “You know how they have to eat people to survive?”

    Me: “Uh-huh…”

    Direct Supervisor: “If that ever happened, and we’re in a plane crash together, I would not eat you. You don’t have much to bring to the table.”
