 Etiquette; noun-
1. conventional requirements as to social behavior; proprieties of conduct as established in any class or community or for any occasion.
2. a prescribed or accepted code of usage in matters of ceremony, as at a court or in official or other formal observances.

For now I'd like to share a lesson in Etiquette with my readers. For those of you who often enjoy going to your local cinema every now and again to watch the newest flick here's a tip:
If the movie you are seeing has less than 10 people in the theater and you show up 5 minutes prior to show-time please do not sit right in front of someone (me) who has their feet on the chair in front of them. If you wanted to sit directly in the center of the theater you should have arrived earlier.

Has this happened to you? Does it tweak your melon (as Hilary says)? Because I can tell you it sure does  tweak my melon! Don't get me wrong I enjoy sitting in the center of the theater as much as the next girl, and I obviously enjoy resting my tootsies on the seat-back of the chair in front of me, as many other movie-goers do. But when I have, in the past walked into a theater with all of 8 people in it the one place I didn't sit was directly in front of anyone else. It's just RUDE.

So please do me a favor the next time you hit up the local cinema:
A) don't sit in front of me.
B) and refrain from sitting in front of others when there are SOOOO many other options.
C) and as ALWAYS keep your mouth shut. I have no desire to listen to your ridiculous ramblings throughout my movie- that I've actually paid to see. I realize this is probably the second or third movie you've seen today and you're more than likely uninterested in the movie's premise but I am. So hush it! Again, it's just RUDE.

Just as a side note: I think unclassy people should not reproduce. I think it shows a lack of concern for others when unclassy people choose to reproduce. Hate me for saying it, if you must but at the end of the day it's how I feel.

'Tis the season huh?

So did you get up and move or did you just proceed to kick her chair the whole time when she started talking?

You have just described why we hardly ever go to the movies (even before we had a baby). You pay good money to go and someone usually ends up ruining it. Might as well stay home.
