Almost there...

Ugh. Well, I lose. After having spent (wasted!) 2 hours on the phone and IM yesterday coordinating the purchase of tickets for Star Wars Episode 2, I was screwed out of getting tickets because the theater had someone answering the phone who didn't know jack. He told me that they went on sale at 9:30 am and that they couldn't be purchased over the phone or online. Also, there may or may not be a per person ticket limit of 4. So I mobilized Ray and Shawna to go buy tickets. They got there around 9:15 to find them already sold out. How? Well, they went on sale over the phone at 8am apparently, and were selling them at the box office then too.

Is it too much to ask that when people have been waiting to see a movie for several years that the person answering the phone has a basic fact sheet about ticket sales?

So half of my friends get to go because Forest bought tickets over the phone for them. Me, I guess I'll be sleeping.
