Yesterday, I took Emily to the movies to see How To Train Your Dragon. I really wanted to see Date Night, but Emily wanted to see this so we went. The theater was surprisingly packed considering how nice it was out. The movie was great. Really great. It would have been more great if I could HEAR all of it. This old hag next to me was coughing the ENTIRE movie. I don’t even know if you could classify it as coughing. It was more hacking. And there was lots of phlegm involved. It was just lovely, really. Thank goodness there was a seat in between us. Hopefully her germs stayed over there.
As if the coughing was not bad enough, her cell phone rang in the middle of the movie. And she didn’t even answer it right away. She was looking at the caller ID as it was ringing. Then she answers it and has a WHOLE CONVERSATION. When the movie ended, I had to climb over her because she obviously wasn’t leaving. She had the nerve to give me a dirty look. Are you kidding me?
Moral of this story: If you are sick, stay home. Don’t bring your germs to a packed movie theater AND ruin the movie for everyone else. Oh, and put your phone on SILENT!
