Wonder Woman

If you're a Facebook friend, you know by now that I'm head over heels in love with the new Wonder Woman movie.

I went back to see it today for the second time.

And a nice thing happened.

Because it's so easy for me to complain about "customer service" sorts of things, here's my story about how a young man helped make my day a good one. 

I went to see Wonder Woman (again) and I went to see it in 3D (again). 

I asked the nice young man at the ticket counter if they provided anything to help folks like me who have difficulty understanding everything being said in the movie 'cause I feel like a miss a lot. 

He could not have been more kind or more helpful. 

I had my choice between a head-set (no, I already wear hearing aids) or glasses that would give me closed captioning. 

When I asked if he had any suggestions on how I could manage those along with the 3D glasses and my own glasses he said, "let me think." 

Disappeared and came back with the closed caption glasses which he had somehow placed the 3D "glass" over. 

VoilĂ !

It was perfect. 

Don't you love nice people? 

Don't you especially love nice people who will think through a problem and make it a non-problem? 

And - he never once made me feel like I was a bother or an annoyance. 

Some of you have no idea how often that happens to those of us who are women of a certain age. 

'Course, to be fair, I've gotten that a lot my entire life, so I guess I do need to take some responsibility . . .

Anyhooooooo - - - if you haven't seen Wonder Woman yet, I highly recommend it.  

I may have to go again my own darn self.
