Random Factoid #135

Apparently I’m still not growing up.

I mentioned in Random Factoid #87 that for a while after turning 12, I was still able to get into movies at children’s price.

Over the Thanksgiving holidays, I went with my 9-year-old brother to see “A Christmas Carol” in IMAX.  I asked the lady at the kiosk for one student and one child ticket.  When I paid, I thought it sounded pretty cheap.  I looked down at the tickets.

She charged us for two kids.

I am 17 years old and still look under 12, apparently.  I can drive a car and see an R-rated movie, yet I can pass for a child.

Thank you, Marshall. Truly, thank you. I needed a good laugh today.

On the flip side, ticket pushers have stopped asking for my driver’s license when I buy tickets to R-rated movies. Curse the aging process.
