Cinemagoers of the world,
It has come to my attention, that too many of you seem to think that it is perfectly acceptable, to talk and text/use your mobile phones, when in a cinema.
It really pisses people off.
We pay to be entertained by the film, not by your never-ending desire to constantly update your status on Twitter every five milliseconds, or check whether your other-half has left you a message asking you to pick-up something for your sprogs after the film’s ended.
A cinema audiotoria is NOT your front room.
It is NOT a space for you to do as you please. You don’t get to remove your shoes, or scoff large side-orders of cheesy nachos, nor put your feet-up on the back of another seat, and you absolutely do NOT have the right to use your mobile phone – at anytime during the film, for any reason, ever.
This is a space meant for one thing, and one thing only:
So, if you are the kind of socially-inept, knuckle-dragging ingrate who thinks it’s ok to “just check my phone”, or give everyone a quick pre-cursor to which other films the person onscreen has been in, please do the rest of us a favour, and kindly stay the fuck at home! You may think you are being cool, or clever, but you aren’t. You’re being deeply, deeply retarded!
In a cinema, there are unwritten rules: a code of conduct, if you will. The rules are simple…
Please abide by this code! If not, then this is what will happen to you…
