    Here's something that pisses me off

    Pardon my drunk, rambling post.

    I just got back from a local bar and let me tell you about something that pisses me off to no end.

    People... no... wait... I mean ASSHOLES who bring a book to a bar.

    What the fuck is that?

    People sit there reading (or pretending to read) in a dark bar.

    You go to a bar to either get drunk or get laid (or both). Catching up on a good book is not something you go to a bar to do.

    Most of these fools are just there trying to send a message to the others around them: "hey, look at me... I'm intelligent... look what I'm reading!". They desperately hope some attractive bookish woman will come up to them and say "Oh! I see you're reading Rimbaud! I LOVE Rimbaud! Let's go back to my place and fuck!"

    Does that EVER happen?!!?! I don't think so.

    OK. This is the end of my drunken rant. Carry on.

    I know EXACTLY what you mean. I was once at a concert where this asshole was reading and bitching that the music was "too loud".

    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.

    simple solution to cell phones and theaters:

    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!

    I love reading and I love my alky-hol.

    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.
