It’s not a bad side job to work in the cinema. You spend all day with popcorn, can watch the credits of a film and tear a few tickets in half. But, there are also a lot of irritations that occur every day!
Unfortunately the visitors don’t know that word. Bowls of popcorn that have been knocked over are scattered all over the floor. Not to mention all the empty bottles that roll under the seats and the nachos that are on the seats. And don’t forget the chewing gum under the seats!
Nice, here comes another group of teenagers. We all know that other visitors will complain before, during and after the film about them. As if you can help it they wanna watch that film too.
3. Child’s film
Children’s films are often shown on Sunday mornings. You try to wake up in a calm way, thinking you’ll have a relaxing day, but the children wake you up in no time when they run in screaming.
4. Tickets check
Over and over, you repeat the following sentence: ”The film is on screen five. You go up the stairs here, and then it’s on your left. There’s no break in the film. Have a nice evening.”
5. Smuggle food
There are always people who bring in their own snacks. Yes, it’s indeed very expensive, but you’re not allowed to hide a bag of M&Ms under your shirt.
6. 16+ film
Every time there are those teenagers who try to get into a movie for over 16, when they aren’t 16 yet. “May I see your ID, please?”
7. Those who are late
There are people who show up late, and therefore have to find their seat in the dark. And so you have to help them, using your flashlight. Sorry visitors, it’s not my fault I have to blind you.
There are people who make a real discussion of complaining about the overpriced popcorn. Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do about that. Your only job is to sell.
