I love going to the movies. I love getting some popcorn and a soda. I do not love trying to grab a single lid off of the ubiquitous stack of lids found in every movie theater and gas station near the soda fountain.

Some theaters hand you a cup and a lid – then you go off to get your drink. The latest theater near my house had a stroke of genius with their dispense-a-lid.

I don’t know if it’s really called that, but that’s the name I’ve given it.

GENIUS!! Pure and unadulterated GENIUS!

They still give you the cup at the concession stand, for security purposes. Then all you do is toddle up to the dispense-a-lid, and follow the instructions. Pull down on the handle and there it is! Only one lid. Pick it up, and put it on your cup. GENIUS!

I can’t wait to see this take over the world.

Maybe it’s just me…

  1. I too like the dispense-o-lid, but it must be filled correctly – anyone that has frequented Culvers (not that I do) knows of which I speak.
