We've all done certain things to try and get a cut price on tickets.
When it came to the days that you began to look too old to get away with a child ticket on the train or bus, you'd make sure your face was clean shaven if you were trying to buy one. It'd pretty much just mean hoping for the best.
When it came to going to the cinema, though, things were a bit different. Rather than trying to look younger, you needed to look above your age so you could get into the films with a certificate of 18.
Sadly, although a lot of us probably would have liked to have tried it, the old trench-coat-over-two-people trick doesn't work, unless you're a cartoon.
This guy completely flipped the script on cinema tickets though, dressing as a woman to try and get cheaper entry to a screening.
The Chinese resident clocked that women would be getting half price tickets as a promotion for International Women's Day. Therefore he decided to dress as a female, donning a pink jacket, a wig and a skirt.
The staff at the theatre in Shaoyang, Hunan province were rightly suspicious and asked for his ID.
At first he refused, but the employees were fairly insistent, prompting him to say: "Just look at me, slim waist, long legs. I look prettier than you."
Despite eventually handing over some ID which stated he was a male, he still got the discounted ticket.
People seemed angry as they accused him of only dressing like a woman to take advantage of the discount on International Women's Day, whereas others say he is free to dress how he likes.
