Box Office Conversations...

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....

Customer: ...Oh...

Sure, they're funny now...
