A night at the movies

My fiancé and I went to the movies last night in East Hampton and we had three rude encounters.

1)      Standing in line – We purchased our tickets online and while waiting to pick them up the man behind me kept chest butting me. One push knocked jutted us forward almost into the next person. Then when I finally got my tickets, this VIP decided to push me to the side to get to the counter.

2)      Getting some soda, popcorn, and nachos – My fiancé went into the theater to get our seats, I waited in line behind a lady who then proceed to have 7 other youngsters draft on her order. Which is fine, but one girl waiting behind me in line, she was about 8, I encouraged her to join her friends but she didn’t want to cut. I insisted. What happened next? A woman, then proceeded to ask if she could cut the line. Nice.

3)      Pop-corn thief – We started watching the movie, at one point I put the bag of popcorn down on the seat next to me. Later on I reached for the bag of popcorn and it was gone. I looked back and the man behind us was eat our popcorn. Not wanting to make a scene I held my tongue. It was just like the Seinfeld episode with the guy stealing the raisins.


Bruised, hassled, and hungry

    What kind of person steals a bag of popcorn?
