Does anyone else have bad experiences at movie theaters?
It seems like every time we go, and we don’t go often so it is really special- I happen to be sitting near the worst person in the theater.
During Avatar a boy kicked my seat the entire time. Why didn’t I ask him to stop? You would have to see the situation to analyze it- the mother was allowing it!
During Marley and Me the man slightly adjacent behind me leaned forward- like fully forward the whole time like we were best buds- leaning on his arms. It was so awkward!
So, now we sit in the very back of the theater. We always arrive at least 20 minutes early. But the next time we went to a movie this man from another culture sat next to me and talked the entire time in another language.
THEN, last night was the worst ever- I chose a movie (we never like packed theaters) that has been out for months and got there 20 minutes early. It was already packed! We sat in the back and sure enough a couple came and squeezed by us- normally I wouldn’t care, but I am pregnant and it annoyed me that they did not walk around to enter by the other side (?) It got way worse when the movie started and this other couple was talking loudly in the little hall/ entry way to the theater- then they came in and sat in the two seats next to me, with my coat between us.
So then they start talking and again- the movie is started, not just the trailers, and then her cell phone goes off! And then she is coughing and coughing and he is sneezing (I know that can’t help that, but they were just so distracting and being pregnant I am a germ phobe). And talking and then they get up to get popcorn and she is all like talking and then she leaves and comes back and is like, “give me a dollar!” to her boyfriend. When she first got up to get popcorn she threw her coat OVER my coat- which I thought was incredibly rude. But then she eats her popcorn after she is back and (I know they were distracting to everyone in the theater, they just happened to be near me which extra sucked) this is the worst:
After she finished her popcorn she took MY COAT. Now, I was uncomfortable with her coat over mine in the first place (it was my Burberry, my dress coat and I didn’t want it to fall on the floor). I couldn’t see very well so I couldn’t rescue my coat from under hers- it was totally drapped over mine. So when I saw she took one I assumed mine had fallen on the floor and reached for it- it was hers! Then, after my coat is spread over her she notices me looking for mine and goes, “Oh, this isn’t my coat!” Hers was polyester and mine was refined wool. How could she not have known?
Anyone else have bad experiences at the movies? I think I am done going!
