I actually told the people in the movie theatre to give me a cup and I would dip water from the toilet before I paid $4.50 for a bottle of water.

no dumbass, the moral of the story is 4:50 is too fuckin expensive for stuff you can get from your sink
Seriously... but one day I was really thirsty and bought one of their tiny bottles of water. and the guy is like, 'for just 25 cents more you can get the bigger bottle of water.' and i was like, 'sir, i know you are trained in up-sizing, but i don't want to have to piss thru the whole movie.'
At Malco, you pretty much have to sell your firstborn to pay for everything by the time you leave.
they probably just looked at you like you were stupid for not bringing your own shit in your girlfriends purse like a smart person. the door person has to tell you you cant bring in outside stuff if they see it.. but do you really think that making minimum wage they care if you sneak it in? no. but if they see it they have to say something so they dont get bitched at. trust me i used to work at a theater. if they dont see it, thier manager cant see it, so they dont give two shits.
I used to work at the movies.
That water expensive as a motherfucker.
You gotta pay for the cups too, son.
Sneak it in, cheapo. As long as it's not in those crinkly, loud plastic grocery bags that rustle all through the movie. Those are annoying as hell.
for real, I couldn't believe it when bottled water came out at $2 a bottle... you know this stuff falls from the sky, right?
i thought it was funny haha. and i don't think the OP was trying to attack the minimum wage earning teenagers that work there, but just trying to prove the water was too expensive. so everyone calm their shit.
Ahhhhhh Mississippi, always such classy ideas. (I am from madison, so no offence meant).
would your name happen to be bingo, lassie, marley, fluffy, scruffy, patches, socks or white fang?
really guys? fighting over water bottles?
you put a water bottle in your purse or your gf's purse.
if you don't have a gf, get one.
i know what the moral is DUMBASS
but you implied that you would pay 4.50
this is why I load up my purse with goodies before the movie... soda, candy, beef jerky, pickles and hot dogs from the gas station (those are soo damned good) then we settle in, open up the purses and enjoy the show with our snacks
I feel ya 832 people I worked at an overpriced burger joint and people always looked at me like I could control the price of their food. I would be like "there's a Wendy's across the street people"
2:44 are you saying you'd pay $4.50 for a bottle of water?
that is definitely a regal theater. 4.25 for a small bottle (20oz) and 4.50 for a liter. I almost feel guilty for selling them to people.
I wish I was as sweet as you. You really stuck it to the man there!
hey 3:13, i'm from madison too!! small world. i'm pretty sure this text is referring to the madison malco theater. i haven't been there in a while, but i recall the prices being ridiculous. $4.50 for water in madison wouldn't surprise me.
Malco in Madison maybe? Made my boyfriend buy me that once ....
LOL! good for you, calling them out on the ridiculous prices at the movies. but damnn, the toilet? i don't know if i'd take it that far. hahaha
You know going into a theater that you're a captive audience and concessions are expensive. Why whine to the poor schmuck working there? If you don't want to pay for concessions, sneak it in (or, here, you just walk it on in- none of the employees care). Was this bottle of water to go with the $6 tub of 25 cents worth of popcorn? It's all relative. Quit yer bitchin'. I'm guessing you're also the guy who yells at kids to "get off my lawn!", too.
2:29, you work at the Grand?
11:36 i used to work at wendy's and even that shit it getting expensive.....
You put the bottle of water up your ass or vag and sneak it in...
most movie theaters have water fountains. just throwin that out there
$4.50!? What is wrong with the world!? The theater in my town doesn't even carry bottled water lol
Yes Mississippi has clean water asshole. What do u think we do? Drink straight out of a river?
LMFAO @ 4:43pm. I wouldn't trust the water either. I'd rather pay the $4.50 for the bottled...
Seriously, when you go out, be prepared to pay! Whether you're going out to the movies, dinner, drinking, whatever. You know you'd spend $9 on a pint of Jack & coke. If you want a bottled water, you're gonna have to pay the $4.50! It's 2009. Get with it!
6:20, only sometimes.
they don't always have those little plastic cups at the registers.
when i was working there people used to yell at me because their shit was so expensive.
i told em "go to walmart and get what you want. don't yell at me because you don't wanna pay for stuff that you knew was expensive anyway"
they'd buy the stuff anyway.
I'm sure not paying 4.50 on top of the nine or ten dollars you already spent on a movie ticket is going to make a difference to people at concession. They'll probably just bitch about you Mr. Too Cool for School and the fat chicks asking for extra butter during down time.
dammm what a cheap ass you know your going to the movies and its expensive as fuck at least 20 dlls per person
right on mang, i am with you 100%
if the theatre has a toilet to draw water from, it probably has a sink too, if not a water fountain. just gonna throw that out there too
ROFL! WHY NOT FILL IT UP IN THE SINK?!
They have clean water in Mississippi?
i just wanna know what they said back
because that's so possible....
uh, yeah, that showed them, the teenagers working minimum wage that don't determine the prices. you're such a badass.
you can get free CLEAN water in a cup
So, moral of the story is you're cheap?
Ok dude.. I work in a movie theater.. CORPORATE makes the prices. Do you think the employess care if you buy it or not? Ooh.. and some theaters have a water fountain.. what a fantastic concept..
ok i work at AMC let me just say you can ask for a cup of tap water instead of toilet water, also you're not clever for saying that, we hear it 50 times a day. why dont you just bring your own water??
