Tales of woe from a frustrated teenaged theatre minion.

Hey there folks. If you're reading this, you've either a) been directed here from my pesonal journal, pumpkin_queen16; b) found me through Google-ing things such as "customers" suck; c) wandered over from Facebook or d) are one hell of a random person.

But enough of how you got here, how about what here is?

Basically, I'm an 18-year-old kid trying to scrape some money out of a part-time job. I work at the local movie theatre:

There are some great perks to working in the theatre, such as free movies, discounted food, and awesome coworkers. But there are a ton of downsides too. The main one, as with any job a teen can hold, is customers. Why people think it's fine to condescend teenagers and treat them like dirt escapes me.

I deal with a lot of crap. And in turn, I feel the need to vent about it. For the year that I've worked at Empire Theatres, I've littered my personal journal with work crap. And I feel sorry for the folk on my friends list for having to put up with it. So, I created this separate journal! Also, this one will be PUBLIC, so anyone can read!

Add me if you want, I'll be sure to add you back.
Comment if you want; share your own stories!

I'll probably change names to protect identities.
asshole customers, bitching, cash handling, combos, enjoy your movie, feet off the seats!, popcorn, popcorn sales, ranting, sweeping, ticket sales, upsizing, ushering
