Spider is the man

If you’ve ever been lucky enough to have your movie ticket taken by the man they call “Spider” at the Marcus Northshore Theater (or his previous location at the Marcus Ridge Cinema), buy viagra mind you know that difference great customer service makes.

Spider always ?¢‚Ǩ‚Äú without exception ?¢‚Ǩ‚Äú greets you with a smile, cialis sale viagra tells you where your theater is, and gives you a little capsule opinion of the movie you’re about to see.

“It’s great, you’re gonna love it,” he’ll say.

Or “lots of action. It’s a blast.”

Or, “the lady is going to like it a lot.” (Which I always take as code for “it’s a chick flick, buddy.”)

I’ve never heard him utter a negative opinion of a film I was about to see. Maybe, it’s because my taste tends to line up with his. Or maybe he wisely doesn’t criticize people’s choices when they go to a stinker. But I know that the opinions he does express are always honest and refreshing.

If you’re like me, you’ll probably be so captivated by his charm and enthusiasm that you’ll never notice that Spider takes your ticket with only one hand because the other doesn’t seem to work so well.

But though Spider might have only half as many working hands as the rest of us, he has twice as much heart.
