The Good & the Bad (not in this particular order.)

Bad:

So yesterday I'm at the Guest Desk and a lady comes up (over 65) and tells me that her friend accidentally threw her parking validation away.
"No problem!" sez I as I pass another one to her.
"No..."she falters, "She threw the parking ticket away."
"Oooohhhh," sez I in wincing response.
This is a Bad Thing. Without that they will charge her the maximum amount (I think 15 dollars) to leave the garage. The lady points out the garbage can to me. I heave a big sigh, look around (theater isn't THAT busy, I guess I can take the time to do this myself,) so I go and pull the bag out of the can. I survey the contents...not really that much in there but I am not seeing the obvious telltale yellow card that is a parking ticket.
The friend comes and flutters by me.
"I know I threw something away!" she says.
Pause.
"Maybe it was just my ticket."
Pause.
I pull out 3 more half empty sloshing drinks.
Garbage cans at the the theater have a unique smell...sweet sticky rotten with butter. Not appealing.
I don't see the validation anywhere.
"Are you sure you threw it away?" I ask.
"I don't know," she says.
I feel like a tech support guy. "Is your maching plugged IN?" I think to myself.
"Did you park in the parking garage?" I ask.
"What do you mean?" she says.
"WHERE did you PARK?" I ask.
"OH!" she says brightly. "We found a spot on the street!"

She instantly realizes what she has made me do.
"Oh! I've just embarassed myself!" she says and flees the theater.

The GOOD:
We host birthday parties and due to my oh so suave demeanor and ability to work a crowd I'm generally in charge of them. It's a lot of fun and something I do on my own incentive is do a "This Day in History" for the birthday person.

I saw that we had a birthday planned when I came into work but it didn't have the information on the exact date of the birthday. I called the contact number and talked to the little girls mother. I told her what I was planning to which she replied, "Oh we know! We saw you do that to someone else the last time we went to a movie and my daughter insisted she have her birthday at the Megaplex!"

Totally made my day. I should get commission. :)
