Below are actual conversations that have occurred in the box office over the last week. Names have been removed to protect the stup-...I mean... innocent...
The "We're Sold Out" Conversation
Customer: I need 2 tickets for Thursday the 6th. I have the 2-4-1 coupon.
Jeff: I'm sorry, but we are sold out for every performance.
Customer: What about Sunday the 16th.
Jeff: It's sold out, too. Every performance is sold out.
Customer: Well, what night do you have available?
Jeff: We are totally sold out.
Customer: But I have the 2-4-1 coupon...
The "Waiting List" Conversation
Jeff: I have a waiting list for each performance.
Customer: How does that work?
Jeff: If we receive a cancellation, we call the person at the top of the waiting list.
Customer: When will someone cancel?
Jeff: I have no idea.
Customer: So, I just have to wait?...
The "Seating Preference" Conversation
Jeff: Do you have a seating preference?
Customer: I'd like pretty close, like 10 to 12 rows from the stage.
Jeff: We only have 15 rows in the theatre.
Customer: Well, I don't want to sit at the back...
The "Tickets Are Nonrefundable Once Purchased" Conversation (My personal favorite)
Customer: I would like to put those on my Visa.
Jeff: Tickets are nonrefundable once purchased.
Customer: What does that mean?
Jeff: ....I can't give you your money back....
Sure, they're funny now...
