Usher Needs To Shush

My husband and I were attending a local theatre.  He’s a big guy and recently had taken a nasty fall, injuring his knee badly.
We approached a theatre usher to ask where the elevator to the balcony was so my husband didn’t have to climb the stairs to the second level.  The old biddy who was manning the door took a look at my husband’s size and said, “He better take the stairs.  It looks like he could use it.”
If I hadn’t been so stunned, I would have complained to the house manager!     1123-09
It’s never too late to complain!

    I’m am usher and I simply can’t imagine an usher ever being so rude to a patron. It would never be tolerated in my theater.

    Once I went with my mom (who can’t walk well) to a theater that had several stories (part of it was attached to a garage, that used the same elevator as the theater). I couldn’t find the right button on the elevator to get me to the second story of the theater (I press “2” and get the garage), so I walked into the lobby until I found an attendant. I asked where the elevator for the second story was and the boy pointed behind me, “there’s the escalator.”

    Oh my goodness! If that had happened at my theatre, that woman would have been fired instantly. That is not the proper way to speak to anyone, much less a paying patron. Bad, bad usher!
