You wanna know what sucks?
Logging into the GSC cinema website.
Reserving ONE solitary ticket for Mr and Mrs Smith for the only day and time slot for which I’m free to catch a movie during the week.
Not quite quick enough to note down the reservation number because my browser decided to crash (Even Firefox is not immune, sadly enough).
Figuring it’s not a problem since a copy of the reservation number is automatically sent to my e-mail account.
Logged into my Yahoo e-mail account.
No mail in my Inbox. Lotsa mail in my Junk Mail folder.
Opened the Junk Mail folder.
Saw the mail from GSC.com.my somewhere in the middle of the list, under another Viagra mail and above a promo mail for Apple.
Clicked on the mail from GSC.com.my.
Yup, it’s the reservation number.
Before noting it down, had to go to the server room to check why the heck the internet was sooooo slow (was trying to download the Beethoven MP3‘s from the BBC website).
Came back from server room. (Have no idea why internet is slow. Well, maybe, one idea. Streamyx. Urgh.)
Was a little distracted.
Saw the Junk Mail folder in browser window.
Instinctively, as I have done countless times, I clicked on ‘Empty’.
All Junk Mail gone. With GSC cinema reservation number. Doh!
Went back to GSC.com.my.
Tried to reserve another solitary ticket for Mr and Mrs Smith for the only day and time slot for which I’m free to catch a movie during the week.
Was informed that “the movie for the selected time and date was fully booked. Sorry”.
