Phippsh8er topic for today: phipps plaza.

you’ve made a powerful enemy phipps.  you’ve made a powerful enemy.  let me tell you why i’m hating on phipps plaza.  aside from the fact that i can’t actually afford to shop at any store in the whole freaking mall except from the shoelace section of nike town, there are other reasons.

so me and the girlfie went to go see a movie at the amc theater there because we had movie passes and there’s not really many amc’s around here.  so we parked in the parking deck go in to the mall.  we go up the escalators and make it to the ticket booth when i realize i left the movie passes in my car.  ok, so this one is my fault, i’ll take the blame for this but the other incidents are totally on you, phipps.  so we try to go down to the parking deck level where my car is and the up escalator that we went up on doesn’t have a nearby down escalator.  usually there’s one symmetrical to the up escalator or at least somewhere near it, but nope, it was way over down one wing of the mall.  there was an elevator, but we spent freaking forever waiting for it and then gave up.

as i walk out the door into the parking deck, i almost slam my face into the door because that door happened to be locked.  wow, awesome.  so we get the passes, go up to redeem them at the box office and go into the theater.  ok, things are going smoother now.  we get our seats to watch x-men origins: wolverine and sit down just in time for the previews (which i like watching).  i was a little confused when all the previews were for disney movies.  there was one where eddie murphy is a high powered executive who doesn’t spend enough time with his daughter, another where a family discovers a friendly alien that helps them fight off an alien invasion, and then another featuring guinea pigs who can speak and have crime fighting powers.  so i’m thinking, alright, maybe x-men is a little geared towards children, but you think there’d be some kind of action movie preview at least.  so the movie starts with a disney opening, mind you, and the first scene is a concert and wouldn’t you know, billy ray cyrus is there with his daughter miley.  it’s the freaking hannah montana movie.  ok, no problem right?  we just came into the wrong movie theater.  but that’s when we see a bunch of people, angry people mind you, get up and walk out of the theater.

we go out to see what’s going on, and they played the wrong movie in the right theater.  we go back in and they start the movie (without the previews), and we start watching the movie.  the one good thing that happened is that they gave us free passes for another movie, so our already free movie turned into 2 free movies.  so the movie ends and we walk out.  and after we leave the theater we realize we need to find a bathroom.  no problem right?  it’s a mall.  so we find the restrooms and what do you know?  they’re locked.  do they want people to use the restroom or not?!?

and that is why phipps plaza made my h8er list.

  2. Didn’t know Phipps management were so shoddy. It looks like the first-rate mall from the pic you put up there… BTW, aren’t all malls really expensive, too?

  3. @anonymous: it is a first-rate mall. it’s the high class mall right next to the average person mall. and yes, a lot of malls are expensive, but phipps is not the average mall. this is the link to the mall directory:

    you might recognize some designers that aren’t featured in your normal mall. so in response to your question, no, all malls aren’t really expensive. and yes, phipps plaza is freaking expensive.
