Rules Are Rules

movie tickets

When the usher noticed a man stretched across three seats in the movie theater, he walked over and whispered, “Sorry, sir, but you are allowed only one seat.” The man moaned but didn’t budge.

“Sir, if you don’t move, I’ll have to call the manager,” said the usher more loudly. The man moaned again but stayed where he was. The usher left and returned with the manager, who, after several attempts at dislodging the fellow, called the police. The cop looked at the reclining man and said. “All right, what’s your name, joker?”

“Joe,” he mumbled.

“And where are you from, Joe?"

“The balcony.”
