From an RHUer:
My wife and I went to see "Snow White and the Huntsman" the other day. One group of three elderly ladies were in line ahead of us, and no one was behind us.
I knew we were in trouble when I heard one of the ladies asks her group, "How many tickets do we need?"
The old hens then start clucking amongst themselves, finally deciding they needed four, the extra one for the driver, who was parking the car. Then she starts asking for the total, then turns around and says, "I need everyone's money!"
There's a few moments pause while she gathers the money, then I hear... one... two... three... four...Do we get our senior discount? How much is that....? One...two...three...four...oh, just take this and count it. I'm sure it's all there."
Finally they get their tickets and move on. By this time the line is about 10 people deep, and I move up to the window. I ask which movie they were going into, so I could make sure we avoided them if possible. Thankfully, they were seeing "Prometheus", of all movies.
I get my tickets and we head inside for popcorn and drinks, and guess who is in line in front of me?
I hear the clerk give the total, and the old lady starts in again with "one...two...three...four...."
Thankfully, another clerk stepped up and waived me over and took my order.
