And as if almost cued on key, the entire couple of hundred folks or so stood up and began applauding. Intermingled with the applause were yells of
”Cut them off or leave!” It was an amazing moment to be sure. With that, the group got up and began quickly exiting the theater to the thunderous
applause of the audience.
I love ya Dave.. I really do.
But that was complete fantasy. There are a lot of holes in that statement.
1. There will never be a time when an entire audience is annoyed by the same thing you are.
2. There will never be a time when it is possible an entire audience would be able
to be annoyed by the same thing you are (proximity and all
3. There will never be a time when an entire audience is aware
of your annoyance no matter how loud you shout it.
4. There will never be a time when an entire audience will feel the need
to stand up and applaud for any reason.
5. Most likely the people who did not see the cell phones or texting or whatever.. would believe YOU
to be the rude one.. yelling at the top of
your lungs during a film and all..
and most importantly...
Ignorant people who do things like this at a Movie theatre are NOT ITIMIDATED by a “crowd of people” getting up and telling them to leave, in fact
in probably 100% of the cases they will shout obscenities at you for your efforts.
And the shake your hand thing.. I’ll let that one go.
Like I said, I love ya.. and I agree with the rant 1000%, but this is pure fantasy, what writers write when they want to express frustration
You sure you didn't fall asleep?
What Chaps my Buttocks??
I forgot to ad that what bothers me is the allowed hypocrisy of democrats and liberals.
They talks all day long until they are blue in the face about hatred, bigoty, ignorance, and intolerance.
When it comes to the subject of republicans, conservatives or anyone else who does not agree with their views it's suddenly OK to be hateful,
bigoted, ignorant, and intolerant.
I get it that my side (conservative) can be a massive bunch of pricks, I get it that we sometimes do severely stupid things and I also acknowledge
that my party has way too many religious zealots (I am an atheist). But what I do NOT "get" is this constant ignorance of how liberals act and
In the same sentences that they are crucifying a republican for being an evil baby kicking intolerant bigot they use the very same hateful words they
decry hateful ignorant and bigoted.. WTH??
How is OK to put aside you well-known "principles" and "tolerance" when you are referring to conservatives?
It kills me to see McCain faked his torture posted by the VERY SAME people who whined and moaned about "swift boating".
Eye for an Eye? Then don't [snip] about it in the first place if you'll stoop to the same level.
It’s also the "has to be fraud" attitude toward every election now.
in 06 the dems swept.. no one said a peep about fraud but BEFORE the 06 midterms every other post was about how the republicans and their personally
programmed Diebold machines were going to steal the elections and sweep!
If a republican won, fraud was brought up.. It’s the new excuse for losing.. "Must be fraud"
Then we have the "if you don't accept it, you must be a bigot" reasoning.
I have to "accept" the gay lifestyle to not "hate" them? to not be a bigot?
Does that means that every vegan is a bigot toward meat eaters? Should we have a march?
Also, the constant assumption that all conservatives must be morons to not vote for liberals.
we are all of a sudden southern rednecks who don't know better.
Only liberals are "smart" now.. as if all of a sudden every dem were Einstein rivals....
I am sick of the two sides, seriously.
I am disappointed in my party for sure but the liberal side, I am thoroughly disgusted by.
Just for the record.. I don't "hate" liberals and as far as I know.. most of my conservative friends don’t either, we just think you'll all
misguided.. I wonder what you feel about us..
Never mind, I don't really wonder.. It’s pretty evident.
