Today, I had a formal complaint filed against me for being outrageously rude to a customer. All I did was tell a customer that she couldn't use food stamps at the movie theater. FML

Popcorn, Diet Coke, Twizzlers, and Goobers ARE food. But not Raisinettes. **** you, Raisinettes.

Just explain that to the manager and you will be okay

Let's just hope the manager knows that you can use food stamps either.

#30- Generally, managers know how to manage what they manage :P I think s/he would know that you can't use food stamps at a theater.

I meant to spell can't earlier my bad. Generally half the manager's I've known don't know their head from their ass.

Maybe the OPs manager is like the one in a previous FML and he'll get fired for doing his job right?

Most managers at places like that don't have a clue how to manage anything.

It's crazy, isn't it? I work at a movie theater and oh man, some of the people that come in there... Well, you just have to wonder how they even function in society, honestly.

I used to work at Pizza Hut and it's unbelievable how rude some of the customers are. I had a lady storm in and immediately start screaming, cussing me out and told me to go to hell because we messed up her order of egg rolls. Turns out she thought she was in a Chinese restaurant.

I work in a grocery store and I've been cussed out for refusing to sell people alcohol and tobacco on food stamps

I find relief in the fact that the inventor of those will burn in hell. For his/her deceiving evil "treats."

Dark chocolate Raisinettes are health food! Raisins are fruit and dark chocolate is good for you (I know, in moderation).

Shame on you customers are always right :P

I was being sarcastic lol I'm so proud my first thumbed down comment (you may now thumb this one down also)

5 & 27, That's not your first thumb down. You should try checking up on all your comments to find out. I can tell you're new to FML. Welcome.

Customer always think they're right. Big difference.

WELL HOW RUDE! Popcorn is food too!! And the movies always has the best popcorn!

It's not like Op had the authority to forbid the use of food stamps at a movie theater, Op was just following the rules...

If they need to use food stamps, maybe he/she shouldn't be spending $10+ on movie tickets in the first place.

Yeah BC people on food stamps can only go to work, or look for work, and go home and eat ramen, macaroni and cheese, and tuna fish sandwiches. How dare they get out once in a while, or buy steak once a month. And no oreos or fruit snack for the kids.

That isn't what they are saying...what everyone else (myself included) is saying is that people shouldn't expect their food stamps to work at the movies. They are food stamps not movie stamps. If you have a little extra cash from work and want to go to the movies go for it but don't expect the government to pay for your ticket.

As Shanny said, all you have to do is explain it to management and they should be able to take care of it. If not, then management is obviously failing at their job. This shouldn't be an FML.

The government should set up a food-stamp-to-dollar converter

But that's the point of food stamps so they HAVE to spend it on food and other necessities not going to the movies

Just last week a lady tried to convince me that I'd save money. I buy food with govs money (food stamp) and save my own. All I had to do was exchange some "talcum powder" for them...

*facepalm* I have a feeling that you'll be learning about food stamps very soon.

....and booze, and strippers and hookers

Some people are just so spoiled by modern society... Thinking they should get to formaly complain about everything...
