Odeon complaint gets 100k Facebook likes and 10k comments!
People love complaining on Facebook about things. It's like wandering into the Women's Institute by accident. The latest gripe concerns a post about the Odeon cinema.
The complaint revolved around the cost and quality of going to an Odeon and appeared on the official Odeon Facebook Page on Friday... and remarkably, it has generated more than 100k of 'Likes' and 10k+ of comments.
The complaint focuses on overpriced tickets, food and drink, bad customer service at the food and drink stand and their film being disrupted by the cinema screen next door which was showing The Dark Knight Rises. Signing-off with a flourish, the complainant flicked the Vs up at the piracy warning, saying "your little advert about piracy killing film was the final straw though. Between us in the group we paid you over £45 so four of us could get the 'cinema experience.'"
Sadly for the Odeon, their social networking team seem to have gone to sleep and haven't managed to deal with the issue.
Of course, the person making a complaint is a thunderous dimwit because all cinemas are a depressing experience. It isn't just a problem at the Odeon. Overpriced tickets, awful expensive food, trailers, the smell of bleach and, ultimately, having to watch a film with other people, has always ensured that the cinema is a miserable, miserable experience. What were they expecting? Fools. Slagging the massively underpaid staff off is cheap too. They're the only people more browbeaten and depressed than the customers that attend an Odeon cinema.
That said, there is a point in all of this. While this whining wimp had a wickle twouble at a notoriously dreadful activity, it seems there's a swell of people who don't see the point in going to the cinema. Is it a dying industry?
