There are some really stupid people out there!
I am aware that I don't post on here very much but it is because I don't want to fill this space with sub-par material. I will only post if there is something that I think is actually worth having you guys read. That being said, here is a little gem for you. I went to go see an afternoon showing of "The Green Zone" today at my favorite theater. Because of the time of day and the lack of popularity of the movie, there weren't many people in the theater. I arrived to the movie about five minutes early to find a total of four other people in the theater. There were two people in the very back row and two people in one of the front rows. There are a total of eight or so rows for the stadium seating section to choose from. I chose to sit in the middle of the middle row and put my feet up on the seat in front of me. About 2-3 minutes after I got settled, here comes a middle aged couple into the theater. They proceed to walk into the row directly in front of me and start to sit down in the seat DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF ME! There are a total of 18 seats in each row and about eight rows to choose from. Since, including me, there were five other people in the theater, they had roughly 139 seats to choose from and they choose the two seats directly in front of me! What made it even worse is that the guy, with a bit of an attitude, asks me to remove my feat from the chair. I looked at the guy for what seemed like forever and was in total shock. For those of you who know me, you would probably agree that I lack the "be a dick" gene. I wanted so badly to tell the guy to shove it and to move over one seat and deal with it. Instead, I put my feet down and moved over one seat so that I could put my feet back up without bothering anyone. For the next ten minutes I sat there stewing and thinking about what I could do to piss these people off. I contemplated taking my shoes off and putting them as close to them as I could. I also thought about just shaking the seat next to them as much as I could until they decided to move. In the end, I sat there and did nothing. In short, I am a sissy. May I put it out there to anyone reading this that if someone has their feet up in a movie theater, don't sit in front of them! The only exception is if the movie theater is filling up and seats are getting harder to come by. On a completely unrelated note, if I was a cop, I would totally give people littering tickets for throwing their cigarette butts on the ground. I was on a walk with my wifey (whom I love very much) this afternoon and I noticed a guy in his back yard throw a cigarette butt over his back wall and into the street. I saw this happen and asked my wife if she saw it as well. She agreed that the guy just threw it over his wall and she suggested that I pick it up and throw it back over the wall into his back yard. I loved this idea and followed her suggestion. I will admit that I was actually fairly scared that the guy would see me do it and come try to fight me or something. Nothing ended up happening but it was still fun. I wish I had the guts to do the same thing to someone sitting in their car at a stop light if they dispose of their cigarette butts in an improper manner. Maybe one day I just might work up the courage to do it?
