The Hater and I went to watch a movie the other night. We went to the AMC theater across the street. We really like going to that theater because they have a point-system where we earn points for movies that we see -- the points end up getting us free concessions and movie tickets.
Usually we go on Wednesdays when we get 2 free small popcorns with our point-card. Usually if we go to a show during the week, we catch a showing where we also get the perks. It only makes sense, especially since we're still using our college IDs to get into the theater.
We bought a ticket and cashed-in points for a free ticket. But, lo, we did not receive the free popcorn vouchers. The guy behind the counter told us they didn't do the free popcorn anymore. We proceeded to the customer service desk to question our lack of vouchers...
The nice young man behind the counter blinked at us after we asked if they were still doing their point system that included the free popcorn vouchers. We realized that it had been a while since we'd been to the movies, and it could have changed since we'd last seen a show. He said he didn't think their policy had changed. And then he blinked again...
"Uh, m'am," he muttered, "today is Tuesday."I looked at the Hater. "It's Tuesday, honey, not Wednesday." He blinked. I blinked. We laughed as the guy behind the counter gave us the unimpressed groan.
The Stupids stepped out on the wrong day.
Post Script: The movie based on the Stupid family books did not do the set any justice. It's way more funnier than the film, especially if you can suspend reality like a five year old. If you can't, then that's just sad.
