We waited to buy our tickets for an afternoon movie. The patron at the booth was having a lively conversation with the ticket clerk. Two seniors catching up on old times, slowly. A whole line of people waited, did I care?
We entered the theatre, a woman was upset. The commercials and advertisements were on but there was sound but no picture. " Where is the picture"? asked a very annoyed woman. The truth I didn't miss the pictures, it was restful...
Next in, was another couple. The man was on his cell phone. " Don't talk on the cell phone, in the movies" said another movie goer." Why not" ? " It's not like the picture is on"! I said nothing because I did not care.
It was about this time I took a stroll to the ladies room. We couldn't find the ticket stub- who would have checked anyway? When I returned there was still no picture. The lady called to me, did I speak to the manager about the picture? No I answered I went to the bathroom. " You should have found him maybe you could have gotten this mess straightened out." I wonder what that meant.
The movie, sound and picture started 5 minutes late. The people behind me ate candy for 2 hours crinkling their wrappers, loudly. I enjoyed the movie but let's face it, the people in the movies are crazy, and yes I cared.
