Fun on a Friday: What a box office is really thinking

Have you ever worked retail?  Customer service?  At a box office???

If so, then you know that customers, God love them all, can say and do interesting things.

I stumbled upon a tumblr last week called What Should The Box Office Call Me, which gives you a little peek into what those folks behind the bulletproof glass are thinking when you keep asking, “Do you have anything better?” for the sixth time.

(It’s obvious that the contributors to this tumblr work in a non-profit BO.  I’m hoping that some of my commercial box office brethren will be inspired to start their own.)

Check out What Should The Box Office Call Me.

And enjoy your weekend.   May you visit many a box office and have them think only good things.
