My Blue Heaven: Carmike Cinemas: Costumer Service FAIL
A couple of weeks ago I tried to go see Paranormal Activity 3 with my younger brother for his birthday. My brother was turning twelve, and I’m seventeen. The ticket people would not sell me the tickets because my brother did not have an ID. I showed them mine and said that I was the one taking…
Wow. First off, you are completely in the wrong here by trying to buy your brother a rated R ticket as Carmike policy clearly states, right on the signs in the ticket booth, that anyone who is under seventeen and is not accompanied by an adult over the age of 21 cannot see a rated R movie. Sorry, but all movie theaters are like that, Rave and AMC included. That is because, guess what, MINORS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SEE RATED R MOVIES ACCORDING TO THE MPAA.
Secondly, not only were you in the wrong for attempting to do this in the first place, you were also in the wrong for trying to throw the ticket people under the bus when calling and complaining on them to corporate. Do you want to know why the managers wouldn’t call you back, or why no one really gave two fucks over what you were complaining about? It’s because they were doing their fucking job, and doing it with total compliance to company policy.
It’s people like you who make me want to quit my minimum-wage job every day, and having to put up with people who just want to bitch and moan about anything to anyone with a blazer on in an effort to get their way and hopefully get someone in trouble in the process sickens me. Stop being a whiny brat, stop making such a big deal out of people doing their jobs, and start bringing your parents to the movies when your TWELVE YEAR OLD BROTHER wants to see a rated R movie. Or just sneak the fuck in like normal people do for Christ’s sake.
AMEN PREACH IT TO THE IGNORANT.
