Well, no, I like having the option of using Fandango for the big, new, popular stuff to avoid getting there and having shows be sold out....however....so hubby told ME to do the Fandango for Star Trek: Into Darkness yesterday, even though he has an account and I don't. I used Paypal because I was too lazy to dig out a credit card. Hubby insisted we printed the confirmation off my computer instead of me forwarding it to him. I assumed he had the printout with him before we left the house, but he CLAIMS he brought it into me while I was packing up my pocketbook....


If you know me when I'm getting ready for something...very distracted and non-focused. I can barely remember keys and glasses. So if you want something in my bag you damn well need to physically put it in my hands or into the bag itself. But really, you're better off carrying it yourself.

So we get to the theater and because I used Paypal, my ATM card doesn't generate the ticket. I don't have a smart phone and hubby wasn't even carrying his, not that it would have helped since he didn't let me forward to his phone to print in the first place.

We get to a ticket counter girl. She can't help. God bless the "Guest Services" desk, where the lovely Jason was kind enough to CALL Fandango and they were able to confirm our ticket purchase from my email address.

We got the tickets, saw the movie, had dinner etc.

Please note upon getting home, the print-out was in the living room near the printer, not ANYWHERE near the bed where hubby claimed he had brought it to me.

So many reasons! And oddly enough you are not the only person who felt the need to bring this to my attention. :)

Glad it turned out all right.

I thought I was the only one who used Paypal because it was a PITA to reach for the credit card and type in the numbers.

That's was my other header idea. I'm always there on Sunday afternoons with Sebastian, Yanni et al.

I would hope people were getting it from the Roxy reference as well.

Hubby KNEW it was mostly on him, so we didn't have a major blow-up about it. He said it just added some suspense to the evening.

It is a pain having to drag out the credit card for buying things online. I think I'm too lazy to sign up for Paypal, though.

And you earwormed me too :D

Well presumably if I set up my own acccount with Fandango it could be linked to my card and nothing to worry about....except my propensity to lose my cards. (Had a missing wallet issue this weekend as well. It turned up at the bagel place.)
