So last night I went to the movies with a friend of mine.
While we were at the concession, the one lady kept talking to us about stuff, and she friendly and whatnot, so we listened to everything she was saying despite our complete lack of interest.
Then my friend got her drank, and her pop-it-corn, and as we were walking away to go to the food stand thing in the corner (so I could get a poutine), the girl followed us and then said; “Hey, do you guys like Skittles?” I told her no, because to be frank I really am not a very big fan of them. lol Then she looked over at my other friend, and she replied telling her that yes, she does in fact happen to like Skittles.
So the girl started saying “I got *whatever combo deal here* and it came with a free pack of skittles, but I’m diabetic (or something, don’t remember exactly what she said for reason as to why she couldn’t eat them) so I can’t eat them.” …Now, at this point, my friend and I were both thinking ‘oh that’s nice of her, she’s gonna give us the pack of skittles.’ ….Nope.
Instead, she continues with “I’ll sell them to you guys for 3$”… First of all, that’s a horrid deal. If we wanted to spend three bucks on Skittles, we’d have done it at the concession. Now before I say ramble any further I’ll continue with what followed, which really pissed me off ahaha.
I told her ‘No, sorry, don’t want em’. My friend told her ‘No, sorry. No money left.’ Then the broad looks over at me and starts staring down the 10$ bill in MY hand. I was freaking buying food, and I didn’t want them, jesus. And as if it wasn’t bad enough then she kept trying to get the money out of me, and she then starts asking my friend if she has her debit card and shit.
Even if she did have her debit, why the fuck is she going to go through the trouble of withdrawing money from it to give to a stranger, in a theatre, for a pack of skittles, when she could have just fucking used the card at the concession stand to buy her own?!
She really should have just asked, and once we said no, fucked off.
Sooo rude, annoyed the hell out of me and made me feel SUPER uncomfortable.
But it was an awesome night. Gotta love re-united with the bestfriends of your past.
I didn't know that sort of thing actually happened in real life.
Yesterday, as I was on the train to uni with a friend, the police happened to be on our carriage and started asking to see all the passenger’s tickets. Normally that’s the job of a transit officer, but for some reason, they’ve been MIA lately and the police have taken over.
Anyway, as they were approaching, I was trying to fish out my concession card from my wallet because they’re really uptight about people trying to pass off on a student fare which is half the price of an adult fare; I guess I can see why so many try their luck, but I’m not keen on a $500 fine, so I’d never do it. Hence why I was retrieving my concession card.
As I was rifling through my bag for my wallet, one of the cops approached and abruptly asked for my ticket. Through knowing that it’s a hassle to get things out of my bag, I pulled my ticket out of my bra (because that’s the easiest way to carry tickets and have them handy for when you’re asked to present them), knowing the standard protocol that followed with the asking to see my concession card, I said, “Hang on, I’ll show you my concession card.”
I looked up at the officer to see if he’d bother wait (because sometimes they don’t and write you up instantly because they don’t give you the benefit of the doubt), but instead, saw that he was looking at where I’d pulled my ticket from looking sort of abashed and said, “Nah, don’t worry about it…” and continued to check the tickets of other passengers.
Needless to say that after he’d moved into the next carriage, my friend and I cracked up laughing. Not that I got away with a crime through using my body, as everything was legit, but it sort of felt that way. It just seemed like something you’d expect from a stupid movie mocking men’s behaviour around women. Oh well, it’s a handy hint to any female students who are without a concession card.
I guess male students could try it too, but I’d be a little confused as to why you’re wearing a bra… or keeping a ticket by your chest.
When you're working in Concession
and some guy walks into your line and he looks like a mix of Austin Carlile and Oliver Sykes, and you stand there thinking “DEAR LORD. DONT MOVE FROM MY LINE. I WANT TO GIVE YOU POPCORN… AND HEAR YOUR VOICE.” and you’re rushing through the orders of the people in front of him just so that you can give him some freaking popcorn. And then you see he’s wearing a Pierce The Veil shirt, and you just wish he wanted more than just popcorn because that transaction was way too quick.
i received ANOTHER train fine...
This time, i was caught not having a concession sticker.
Fuckity, fuck, FUCK!
I’m so pissed off at myself.
I got a letter from RailCorp (or whoever) saying that they accepted my leniency plea and that i didn’t have to pay the fine for my previous penalty notice. But now, seeing as i just got another notice, they might actually make me pay the $200.
I’m scared. There’s no way i am telling mother.
