I'm a respecter of age...

which is why I didn't boot you in the head. I'm sorry if you found my request that you and your companion refrain from jabbering during "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" unreasonable. I thought "Ladies, could you please not talk during the movie. Thanks," was perfectly polite. Replying with "There are plenty of other seats in the theater!" was unacceptable, especially since Silver and I were there first. Also, I'm happy that this was your "special outing", but if all you wanted to do is talk, you should have gone to a cafe. If you desire to give a movie the MST3K treatment, or if one of you needs explanations for everything, rent a dvd and stay home.

I hate that shit. I have more than once gone to management to report an irritating person, and, if that didn't work, I have accidentally "tripped" while carrying my (Nachos, Gallon Drink, etc...) and spilled it down the back of said offender. The quiet I'd get was worth the $10 snack bar price!!

My wife laughed at me about a decade ago when I asked two girls to hush and the result was that they sat still and deathly quiet the rest of the entire movie. She was amused, I guess, that I did it because she was having a hard time hearing the movie.

I really wanted to scream "SHUT THE FUCK UP!" but I'm too polite. :D

remind me again why you didn't boot them in the head?

You are in Texas. No jury would have convicted you.

It's times like those that I REALLY want to carry a .22 auto with a suppressor. Nothin' quite says "shut the hell up" like two in the head, and "They needed killin'" is a valid defense to manslaughter here in Texas. Or so I've been told.

Julie, I was wearing new shoes...


DaddyBear, I wouldn't be too sure of that.

Back when I attended movie theatres (in the last century), I was troubled by a couple 'misguided yutes', who insisted on such behavior. The persons immediately adjacent appeared too afraid to address them, and the theatre was full to capacity. I left my companion, crossed the aisle and two rows back, and firmly stated, "The movie has begun. I didn't come here and pay good money to listen to you guys shuck and jive all the way through it. Please be quiet!" They did so, and I received a smattering of applause when I returned to my seat. And, no one shivved me in the dark.

re: your fine theatre ladies: "You can lead a whore to Walter, but ya can't make her think."

Wait.

Something like that.

Buck - How bout, "you can lead a whore to Walther, but ya can't make her plink."

Wait, I bet only I found that funny.

George, this isn't the first time I've asked people to shut up, only the first time I've been given shit for it! Good for you!

Buck and Mike, you both have issues. But I love you anyway! ;)

You need an air horn that uses canned air like boaters have.

Ask nicely. If they give you a shovel load then just hold the horn about a foot behind their heads and give it a brief toot.

You'll probably get booted out of the theater but you'll get a chuckle out of it.
