Great article. It would be funny if it wasn't so true. The management needs to put monitors in every theater and kick out the texters and talkers. It would only take about a week and after that even these mentally challenged teens would get the idea and either knock it off or stay home. Either way, the serious movie-goers would come back to take their places and have a good time. Sadly, today too many teenagers are just apparently a waste of DNA with no social graces or any redeeming qualities other than sucking the money and life out of their parents. This behavior, of course, mostly falls back on insufficient parenting skills to begin with. It's way past time for the return of discipline and responsibility for one's actions. Wake up, mom and dad, and get control of your demon-spawn before it is too late.
Love it! Aprill you are so funny and right on target in regards to these know-it-all punk kids! I just don't understand how parents are not teaching their kids common courtesy....come on people!!!
SO funny but at the same time SO sad that parents have stopped teaching their kids how to behave in public. I tend to be very outspoken and you should see parent's faces when I tell them they need to reign their kid in because if I get hit in the head with that ball flying down the Wal-mart aisle, someone is gonna find it in a funny place.
That's funny because I went to go see a movie the other day, and six unruly teenagers ended up behind me. After asking them to be quiet, I called the manager, who proceeded to escort them out. The funny thing about that is...I'm only 19!! LOL
Wow, you have patience. That makes me enjoy my large screen and surround sound even more. I have yet to visit our movie theater for those reasons, and the invention of extra butter microwave popcorn didn't hurt.
Thank goodness for Netflix.
April has just written an article that explains why we will wait for the DVD to come out. May not be the big screen but we can take the phone off and not answer the door! And if nature calls.....pause!
Aprill, long time reader, first time commenter and as always I highly enjoyed your column!!! And in all honesty it's rather become a guilty pleasure of mine. I relate so well to your writing and once again you hit the nail on the nose. As my mother would say, as she recieved horible customer service from another pimple faced geek with an attitude once again, teenagers are running this world. Unfortunatly people like you and I have to endure their ever growing immaturity. If it wasn't against the law I would've reached back like a pimp and slapped hoes!!! Bravo for keeping your composure. And for Tiffani and her clan of BFF's, and Travis' insecure GF, the next time you go see a movie that seems "(very bad word) lame", know this; as long as you are within 15-30 of the movie you can exchange your ticket to see ia different movie if unsatisfied. So think about that you little snots, the next time you ruin someone else's good time!
April is funny, most of the time, but this has got to be the best column that she has ever written. The only thing she missed was the little blue screen, texting, that every teenager in town seems addicted to. Especially during a movie. Good job.
Once again I'm glad we had a dog.
LOL.....wow...that was hysterical, though reading it my blood pressure went up a few points, I am a huge empathizer! I would have turned on them quickly, if that didnt work I would've gotten the manager....that's when you know you are REALLY old!
Love it! I would have called the theatre from my seat and asked them to come escort the punks out.
