So...I visit a small town theater last night to see the Leonardo di Caprio film "Inception". I picked up a friend's daughter to go with me and we stopped for snacks to take into the theater, then we met up with a friend of mine.
I had a voucher for a free ticket after purchasing some products at Walgreens recently. The ticket agent processed the ticket while I dug around in my wallet for my bank card to pay for another ticket and a soda. The agent had me sign for the $7 ticket (small town price at a small town theater) and the confusion began. I couldn't figure out why she charged my card for a ticket then wanted to charge me again for another ticket and the soda. She couldn't figure out why I was challenging her. sheesh. we went 'round and 'round... and finally she shook her head to clear it, realized that the free ticket voucher had issued a receipt I'd signed and that I hadn't yet turned over my bank card to pay for the other items.
THAT made sense. Not a good start to a night at a film that makes you think, and think, and think some more when you leave the theater and try to get a good night's sleep.
I also managed to declare loudly that my friend didn't need to pay me for the whole ticket since SHE BOUGHT THE CANDY. I'm sure the ticket agent thought "ummm..you didn't buy any candy yet...... ma'am..please leave the premises!" but she didn't say a word.
Did YOU see inception? What did you think? You can email me your thoughts. I'd love to bounce some ideas off you about Inception. I'll tell you this much: I will be seeing the film again in the near future.
