FLOTSAM AND JETSAM

THE Monday movie pass ticket promotion seems to be a hit at the cinema nowadays, Beachcomber was told.

The promotion allows one to present an empty toothpaste packet to get a free ticket while buying one.

So much so, Beachcomber was told that students hung around the cinema counter booth.

As a moviegoer lined up to buy two tickets for a movie, one young girl calmly walks up to him and asked if she could use her packet so she could have a free ticket.

Mind you she wanted a ticket to a different movie.

When the moviegoer turned around there was about eight other teenagers behind him. Apparently, they managed to get their free tickets just by asking moviegoers who were paying cash for theirs. Talk about being enterprising.
