Friday night and no movie

Today we decided to go to the movies with a group of friends and Marcos was responsible for buying the tickets on the Internet. The movie was Ocean's thirteen.

After work, we met with everybody at a restaurant before the movie, the session we would watch was at 9:30PM. We were not in a hurry because now at almost every cinema in Rio we can buy the ticket with the seat defined. After dinner we went to the cinema and what was not my surprise to find our seats already occupied.

I asked the people that were sat at our seats if they were sure about their seats and they answered "YES!". Ok, I was going to ask the management about this problem, thinking that the website application was not working properly when suddenly I remembered that some months ago Marcos had bought some movie tickets on the Internet for the wrong session. Bingo! He bought the tickets for the midnight session!!!

We were so frustrated... No George, or Brad or Matt tonight... We ended up exchanging our tickets for invitations for another session, and maybe we will watch the movie on Sunday...

Menina, é mesmo é? Agora quase todos os cinemas têm cadeira definida? Que maravilha! No meu tempo näo era assim não!!!!! :) Aqui é assim e é, de fato, muito melhor. Cinema sem estresse. Beijocas.

Well I definitely don't blame Marcos. It's this crazy system where you get assigned seats that ruins everything. If it was like how it is in the US, you'd be fine :)
