Scenario: You go to the movies. You walk into the cinema, which is empty apart from two people. Do you:
a) Choose seats a couple of rows in front or behind them?
b) Sit in the row immediately in front of them, but a few seats to one side?
c) Sit in the two seats right in front of them?
The baby and I went to see The Avengers yesterday. We were the first in the cinema and carefully chose our seats about four rows from the back, and smack in the middle of the row. A family of four came in next. The parents were quite tall. Guess which option they chose: a, b or c?
Oh yes they did.... Option c. Bastards.
We got up and moved along the row. I hate peering over someone's head.
Other people began to trickle in, and by the time the movie was just about to start, the cinema was about half full. There were two empty seats to the right of me, and one to the left of The Baby. Two young guys came in, surveyed the available seats - four in this row, six in that one, five over there. Entire damn rows were empty. Guess where they sat? Yep, in the two seats right next to me.
I looked at The Baby and he looked at me. We both rolled our eyes. Then we got up and moved again, to a row where we each had two empty seats next to us.
What is WRONG with people? I know I'm a tad cranky, but really - doesn't everyone enjoy a little personal space?
