How Much is Your Blog Worth?

ShowHype: hype it up!


My blog is worth $10,161.72.
How much is your blog worth?


A slight improvement over last week! I just have to keep the linking from technorati blogs up and it should continue to go up. The increase isn't too great, but any improvement is good. How are you doing with this?

Just checked the alexa rankings, and it doesn't look like anything has changed. I don't know how often they update, so I will make that a monthly thing here. Someone remind me when the time comes three weeks from now. Hmm, this entry seems pretty boring right now. What do I have that is exciting right now?

How about some crappy people that come to the movies! Sunday evening, there was a gentleman who came to the theatre, bought two tickets and left. Boring huh? Well, he actually gave the tickets to two kids, one his son, and one not. For a rated R movie. They got caught, and called him to come pick them up. Here's where things get interesting. He asked to speak to me, and when he came up to me, he explained that he bought them tickets, and that they should be able to see the movie without him. I explained the policy to him. Simple, right?

Of course not. He said "Why did you sell me two tickets then?" Of course, it was under the assumption that he was going to the movie, right? "Don't assume anything. You shouldn't have sold me the tickets." How were we supposed to know? Anyway, right after this he demands to see the MPAA guidelines. You guys know that I've had my experiences with this. So I go upstairs looking for the pamphlets we carry, and I couldn't find them. I did find the poster from this post though. It was sitting in our lobby, right where it should be. He goes on to tell me that all he has to do, according to that poster, is accompany them to the theatre, not the movie. At this point the GM has gotten involved, and re-explains it to him again. His final response? "You've got about 30 seconds to return my money." Geez. What a jerk.

I don't like people who speak in a threatening tone. I don't know what they think, that intimidating people will get them far in the world? It's easier to be nice, and keep things like that in. The look on their faces as you stay calm while they freak out is priceless. :-) I've got another one, but I'll save that for another post!

HAHA!! So many things go through your head when people make comments like that:

-Sorry that took 31 seconds :-\
-Or What?
-Well you have about 20 seconds to get out of my theatre :-)

And so on....

So are we really making money here or are we just posting imaginary figures?? Hmmm....One day Joen, I will surpass you. Till then, I'm ranked 13th!!

Imaginary numbers... well they have some meaning. But imaginary.. till I make it big in the blogosphere. :-)

Don't you just love it when people do something wrong then get made at YOU

It happens all the time, unfortunately. People have this weird sense that if they did something wrong and get mad about it, it makes it all ok.

Unbelievable! I agree with Mandy, I would have told him to calm down or I would be happy to have him escorted out.

We lost our (useless) security guard, so we would've had to call the cops.. and we all know how fast their response times are...

It's pretty bad here sometimes. Once a guy threatened to shoot up the place and the cops took 45 minutes to get there. Next time I'm telling them I'm in the process of being shot. Maybe they'll be there on time then...

I also agree that he should calm down. Well, we meet people like that one in a while. Luckily there are more nicer people around.

I have faved you.

I don't know why, but once in a while happens a lot more often for me..:-) I wish that weren't true, but what can ya do. (Talk about them when they leave. Insult their parents. Make up names for them. Spread rumors. Just kidding)

Off to check out your blog!
