I remember having this conversation with a friend of mine when I was in New York during Christmas. We had booked tickets for a movie, as we had nothing else to do on a rainy day. As we were going to the screens...
Me: You remember the screen number, right? (I always ask that question, every time I go to a multiplex to watch a movie, even if I had the tickets in my pocket).
Friend: Yes, its on the ticket (duh!!). Its screen 9.
Me: Great (dunno why I said that, doesn't make the movie any better if its on screen 9, but whatever)...
We go in.
But its already playing a movie - and looks like it has already reached the climax.
Me: Didn't know that they have started showing such elaborate scenes in trailers.
Friend: Ooops... Thats "Invictus", and its not a trailer.
We walk out.
Me (Contemplating): So, it was screen # 9, right?
Friend: Yup, thats what the ticket said. May be we are a bit too early.
Me (Curious now): Let me have a look at the tickets.
And promptly, I look at the tickets.
Me (Giving that I-knew-it look): Do you remember what movie are we going to watch?
My friend thinks for a while.
Friend (now embarrassed): He he... Now don't you pull my leg. . . . .
(Psst... We were there to watch the movie "Nine")...
