Behind the box office

I took this photo inside the office at the back of the Ayala Cinemas ticket counter. There were several office desks, one of which was piled high with cash—it was behind a high partition but I saw it anyway. The chairs for visitors were theater seats, and in one corner was this: busted computer monitors, a box full of ticket stubs, and movie posters! And one box was for movies that are still to be shown a few months from now. I was so tempted to swipe some, I tell you. (And I have a little problem: I promised the lady I was talking to that I'd thank her in this blog. The problem is, I didn't write down her name and now I've forgotten it. Maybe it's just as well—her boss might not approve her letting me take the picture. You know who you are, girl—thank you!)
