I woke up in the morning and noticed that today is not as hot as these past few days. I thought to myself that summer will soon be over. I went out of my room and down to the kitchen to do my usual routine every morning which is to clean up the messes made last night, put the dished back where it belongs and make ice. When I went down, my mom was already awake and did most of the things I intend to do so instead I made the ice. Once done, I took my seat in front of the TV and watch.
While watching, I saw our cable provider's(SkyCable) ad last Saturday. They were giving out free 2 tickets to Prince of Persia for this Friday for the first 80 subscribers who would call. I called last Saturday and inquired if those tickets were still available. They told me they were so the agent told me that they already reserved me the tickets. She also told me that They will call again to give me the details to when and how it can be claimed. I said ok and waited.
Tuesday came and still no call. I was passing the time until 10am because it was the time when the people responsible for the freebies start or whatever. I called and wanted to inquire when can I claim the tickets. The agent I am speaking with told me that they would call me again for around 10-15mins. So I waited. Good thing, they really did call me back. The agent I am speaking with told me that the tickets were no longer available. I was not able to reserve the tickets and they already ran out of tickets to give. I was so pissed off ! The agent I spoke to told me she already reserved the tickets for me last Saturday and now this other agent is telling me I did not. Of course, I will not go down without a fight. I asked her now what do we do. It was their error and not mine. She offered me the next premiere movie which is Sex and the City 2 showing in June 2. But then, they still cannot give the ticket so she would call me again when they can give the tickets. I just agreed since I think that would be the best thing she could have offered to me. If they did not call, well, I just have to make a scene again.
I was really patient enough to be calm and all since I sympathize with the call center agents there. It's just that I had my hopes up for this movie and wanted to watch it. They confirmed it and all. Now... There is nothing to watch anymore. I got so disappointed until now.
