The Usherette

A man lay sprawled across three entire seats in a cinema. When the usherette came by and noticed this, she whispered to the man, 'I'm sorry, sir, but you're only allowed one seat.''

The man groaned but didn't budge.

The usherette became impatient. ''Sir,'' she said, ''if you don't get up from there I'm going to have to call the manager.''

Again, the man just groaned, which infuriated her and so she turned and marched briskly back up the aisle in search of the manager.

In a few moments, both she and the manager returned and stood over the man. Together the two of them tried repeatedly to move him, but with no success. Finally, they called the police.

The policeman surveyed the situation briefly. ''All right sir, what's your name?''

''Sam.'' the man moaned.

''Where are you from, Sam?'' the policeman asked.

''The balcony.'' he replied.
