    I got a good one.

    I once went to a movie theater, and someone brought a portable TV with them & was watching it during the movie! And the guy had no earphones. Someone actually got rather upset and there was a small scuffle before theater staff came in & kicked the two guys out(the TV guy & the guy who got upset)--BTW, this was at a "discount" theater.

    Yep, that would have burned my ass too. This is the same asshole who is sitting next to you and doesn't turn their cell phone off and answers a call RIGHT there in the theatre. I felt like slugging the prick, or at the very least shoved a straw REAL HARD up his nose....but I would have to get another straw and miss the movie. Nah. Slamming him hard in the nads would cure him FOREVER of any further rudeness. Then next time he's with his SO and he finds he can't achieve a hard-on, he remember ME Sorry, but I'm hardcore when it comes to watching movies and I don't tolerate rudeness in theatres well.

    1)grab phone
    2)throw

    Hehe...I actually thought about doing that to some stupid ignorant twat. Actually, I thought of either shoving the thing up her ass or making her eat. One of the two would have sufficed.

    Yes, I have a violent streak.

    Okay, here's my deal. I read at the bar. Not that i'm going out to a freakin' nightclub and standing on the dance floor reading, but i do drop by the pub, local watering hole, whatever with a book.
    Here's my reason....I love reading. I'm always reading. I read at work, i read on the can, i read before i go to sleep, etc. I'm also an alcoholic. This means that i will often go to a bar by myself and drink. I bring a book. It's good company. I don't know if it makes me look intellectual or not, but that's why i do it. I would however, never complain about the music being too loud, or read at a fucking concert...or bring a portable TV to the movies. My love of reading is matched only by my love of cheap, tawdry sex, and cheap, tawdry alcohol.

    Well said, Mark. I also love to read. I once brought a notebook and book to a nightclub once and over my Yeungling lager I wrote a poem or two and read my book. Noone bothered me nor even cared that I was reading. However a very nice gentleman came over to keep me company. He didn't hit on me, (which I appreciated) but we had a very nice conversation. A book is very nice company. When I go out to dinner at my local diner, I bring whatever book I happen to be reading with me. Since I'm a regular at the joint, they don't bother me about it and I always make sure that I leave whoever waited on me a nice big tip (at least $5 no matter what the bill is), as a way of saying "thank-you for letting me enjoy my book while I eat your food". I don't see what's wrong with reading like that in public places. I've never complained about music being too loud or people having loud conversations. When I'm involved with my reading I'm able to shut out the world.

    WELL, I GET PISSED GODDAMMIT!!

    There's just too many things to get you pissed off when you're trying to watch movies...

    Like some dumb-ass couple who brings their screaming infant to an R-rated movie and doesn't have the decency nor the intelligence to get a baby-sitter.

    Or a bunch of ignorant teenagers who laugh and talk out loud during a serious movie that YOU'RE trying your damnest to watch...and it's subtitled and their constant yammering makes you distracted. Don't you feel like wringing their freaking necks?! I know I do.

    Oh, and thank you, Mark!

    It's because I love reading that I can't understand wanting to do it in a place full of distractions and piss-poor lighting.

    If I'm gonna drink and read, I do it at home.

    I don't get distracted when i read. I get completely absorbed in the book. I'll come up for air to light a cigarette, or take a swig of beer, but then i'm back down again. I do see your point though...I know lots of people from "back in tha day" that would bring books by Rimbaud, Hemingway, Burroughs, etc, to a bar, just to look like intellectuals...it's ridiculous.

    If i drank at home, my parents would yell at me. Snicker. I wish i was joking.*


    *When my wife and i separated, i moved back to my parent's house, because my head was a mess, and i needed "stability". Bad fucking decision on my part. Since that moment, all i hear is "Where were you last night?" "Have you been drinking?" "You're going out? Don't you have to work tomorrow?" "Why don't you spend your money on something that you need, instead of all this stuff that you just want?" "Is that another new guitar?" "Why does it sound like you're watching porn in there?" I wish i was exagerrating.

    Geez, I'm glad that my parents had already moved down to Florida when I separated from my ex...we're divorced now. Actually, I wish my parents were with me while I was going through the divorce proceedings. Then maybe I would probably be better of. Wish you well. It ain't easy but it gets better. Believe me.

    Cell Phone Horror Story

    I once went to an exclusive restaurant and was ready to chow down on my $20 T-Bone when a cell phone began to ring at a nearby table. It rang about thirty times and no one answered it. When I turned around to see where the cell phone was; I became aware of the fact that the cell phone was sitting at an unoccupied table! The woman at the table was in the ladies room!

    When she returned to the ringing of her cell phone; she picked it up and screamed into it "Who the hell is this?" Remember now...this is a usually quiet and expensive restaurant and I was enjoying a $20 steak and this bitch had a voice that cut through you like a knife! She had one of those irritating screechy voices (I can only imagine the sound of her shrieks when she's getting laid!)

    I politely asked the waitress to inform the lady (and I use that term loosely), that other diners were being disturbed by her cell phone. The waitress looked at me and said "Cell phones aren't against the law! I can't tell her to stop talking on her phone!" The waitress walked away.

    The lady on the cell phone was talking to her kids and screaming at them "When I get home you little bastards are going to be sorry! Behave!" After about 15 minutes of this raving lunacy, the waitress received so many complaints from diners that she finally told the woman to end her phone call or go into the bathroom or outside to talk. The woman put her hand over the phone and told the waitress "Fuck off! I'm talking to my kids!" The manager intervened so the woman finally ended her call. End of story? Hell no!

    The woman put the cell phone in her purse and proceeded to the pay phone, called home and continued ranting and raving at her kids. The restaurant staff gave up on her rather quickly. My nice quiet meal, and other diners, was quickly ended. When I left, I did not put a tip on the table but instead, penned a brief note. It read "The steak was fine but the atmosphere here sucks! No peace...no quiet...no tip!!!

    As for the bitch on the phone, she was still screaming into the pay phone when I left the restaurant!!! Some people can't live two minutes without having a cell phone against their ear. I just wish it were legal tio shove it up their ass, instead!

    From my experiences as a waiter, I just wanted to say that what you did was NOT cool... If anything, blame the manager of the restaurant and never come back again, not some poor waitress who makes below minimum wage and lives off of her tip money. Yeah, you sure made your point by making that girl work for you and then not leaving her a dime because of some other jackass customer... I guess that makes another thing that pisses me off... customers who don't leave tip, especially those who lame excuses to justify their actions...
