Welcome To Loser-ville


OK, this is pretty good.

Yall know I go to the movies often. Like, once or twice a week. Almost always alone. Well, the theater I frequent has a "reward" card, which is swiped each time you buy tickets or concessions. For each 50 or 100 point increment, you win a box of candy, movie ticket, small popcorn, etc.

I went last week and handed my card over as usual. I would think that most of the peeps working there should know me by now. I'm the girl who shows up way early and sits in the lobby reading her Kindle until showtime.

Obviously, there's a new hire in the building. Because, upon swiping my card, he realized that I hit 500 points.

He got all excited......I was honestly expecting balloons and confetti at this point.....it was a pretty big deal.  He reads off my prize....."Wow!  You won a 'night out at the theater'.....complete with 2 movie tickets and a popcorn combo!"

Then, he looks at me. 

Standing there all alone.

"But, I see that you're alone.  Too bad.  Oh, well.  Enjoy the show!"

Thanks, punk ass kid.  I will.

I love at story. They should traded it to two free movie tickets and two combos. At is two movies. Yippee! Hope you enjoyed the "free" movie.

Nice - you should have made up some sob story about how you're all alone ... just to make the kid feel bad.

That's totally awesome! I have a rewards card for the movies too. It used to be the Moviewatchers program, but now it's called AMC Stubs. I love it! For every $100 we spend, we get $10 to spend. Also free upgrades on popcorn and cokes always!

Speaking of going to the movies by yourself, I was going to go see Bridesmaids today, but I missed the showing that would get me home before the kids got off the bus. How was it?!

YOU.MAKE.ME.LAUGH! I'll go to the movies with you.

Bless your little heart. But man what a super cute picture of you holding your card!

Aw..see? Sometimes I'm sweet. It could be because I'm buttering you up for something. You never know...
