AVP-R. [Or, how not to behave in a theater!]

My hubby and I went to see “Alien vs. Predator: Requiem” yesterday on Xmas Day. It was a dark movie that you did not want to be a human in or get attached to any of them on the screen. But that is not the point of this entry.

Maybe I’m just “getting old” these days, but I no longer enjoy going to the movie theater. It seems that people have no concept of “courtesy” these days. From the asshole behind me who kept bumping my seat every time he shifted, the two people talking loudly to others during the movie and the three idiots texting during the movie—they all seem to have no concept of what it means to be courteous.

I don’t think anyone would say “hostility” is a trait I show often, but something about being in a movie theater these days makes me just want to kick the shit out of people who are rude. I get so “agitated” that by the end of the movie I have to actually force myself to calm down. That’s not healthy! I would rather miss all the fanfare and office talk by waiting for the DVD to come out and watch it at home with no one around to be rude.

I wish the aliens would have attacked these people instead of the people on the movie screen.

Until next time...
