An Important Lesson

Movie-theatre1

So I was extremely excited . I came early and had already bought all my favourites from the candy bar so I wouldn’t have to go out in the intermission and risk missing any scene of the movie. Popcorn in one hand and coke in another , I was ready to go . It was a premier and me and my sister were going ecstatic ( mostly me ) to see the next instalment of twilight ( a teen series ). The theatre was pretty isolated.

” I can’t believe am finally going to see the movie ! ” I said erratically.

” Yeah , I know huh .” My sister replied while texting on her phone.

Just when we were about to enter the hall , a guy sealed it shut.

” Sorry folks , the show has been cancelled .” He said with a blank expression.

” Wait , What ? Why ?” I asked with a croaked voice.

” Well , the prints came late and its going to take some time to run it , so no-show today. We’ll get you a refund. Feel free to come back tomorrow , I am sure it will be sorted out till then . ” He said leaving me with a shocked expression and a pain in my heart .

Then in an unexpected turn of events , my sister stepped in.

” How dare you ! ” I turned my head towards her . ” How can you people be so irresponsible.We booked the tickets for this show two weeks ago. This movie is already releasing late in India and my sister was so happy to finally be able to watch it. You broke her heart. I don’t want a refund . I want to see this movie TODAY !” She yelled at the manager long enough to scare him to death.

After ten minutes he returned and arranged a show for us after half an hour and refunded our food ( which was half eaten ) and upgraded our seats. I was the perfect picture of joy. That manager was never to be seen again , well I did see one guy run like hell after seeing my sister who looked awful a lot like that manager.That day I understood my sister loves me a lot just doesn’t show it a lot. I loved the movie and learned a very important lesson – Never to get on my sister’s bad side , ever !
