My best friend and I were at the mall movie theatre tonight. We agreed he'd put his leftover restaurant meal in the car while I bought the tickets. I said at the ticket booth "Two tickets for the One Direction movie, please." The cashier looked behind me and asked "Who else is with you ?"
I was baffled by that, so I blurted out "He's out in the car. He's an adult, too." I know I look younger than my age, but dang, it wasn't an R or X movie
We picked seats at the very top row, since the show was empty. Then during the commercials, some theatre employee walked up to our row with two broom handles, crouched a little + craned his neck like he was looking for hidden people and walked away with "Okay, enjoy the movie. Have a good evening." I'm not sure if they had issues with teens sneaking friends in or it was something else.
