I’ve mentioned this before.
Can someone explain to me WHY people think it’s okay to mess with their phones during a movie?
I’m not talking about a movie in your home.
I’m talking about an actual movie theater.
Tom and I got to see The Incredible Burt Wonderstone and while it was funny, I was distracted because the girl beside Tom kept messing with her phone.
THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE MOVIE.
Now, okay, maybe I get it if someone is babysitting your kids and you get a text so you want to check to make sure everything is okay.
But if it’s beyond that? Leave the theater. Go to the hall.
This chick kept checking FACEBOOK. She didn’t look older than 20 so it figures. Her boyfriend kept chuckling as she did it. Had I been with her I’d have told her to put her phone away or else I’d chuck it against the wall.
I told Tom if she had been next to me that I’d have told her to knock it off.
At one point I did go, “That’s REALLY distracting.”
She didn’t care. Bright light from her phone went into my face.
What is WITH the people these days? Where are the manners?
I’d have said more but we were in Texas and lots of people in Texas have guns. One never knows who will use said guns these days so I didn’t want to cause an, ahem, problem.
But seriously, if you’re with someone who messes with their phone during a movie? If they are your friend who you know won’t pull out a weapon? Tell them it’s rude. Tell them that it’s distracting.
If you’re reading this and YOU mess with your phone while seeing a movie in a theater?
You shouldn’t pay to see a movie if you aren’t going to WATCH it.
