Cell Phone Courtesy

A while back, I was at a movie with a friend. Halfway through the movie, a phone rang. Not a shock, that happens. But what usually is avoided, is actually answering the phone. Not only did this person answer, they used there "outside" voice with a big "Hulla?" then a "Yeah, he's right here!" (passes the phone to idiot #2) "HULLA?" "No, not much, just watching a movie.." (this goes on for another 5 minutes)

The whole theatre was angry and seriously considering launching popcorn and juju's directly at these two. My friend and I were laughing uncontrollably at these two people who had the audacity to yell into their cell phone in the middle of a movie. And the movie just kept on playing. Unfortunately the only thing we could hear was the stimulating and all too important cell phone conversation.

But I think I have found a solution. Maybe this would discourage people from using their cell phones at the inappropriate times..


I don't know about you, but I would have to find a bigger purse.

Why do people think it is okay to talk during a movie? Even the previews! And texting is just as bad. But it's not just cell phones. I once went to an movie where the parents didn't have a babysitter so they brought their kid along, and it wasn't a kids show. He sat under a blanket playing his PSP the whole time!! The blanket didn't stop the light from being annoying!
