    The lesson for today is fuck the theater. I rarely go. I know how it's going to be. And it's always, always like this. God Bless DVD.

    I'd put a fiver on the parents screaming back, "Don't use that language in front of my kid!"

    I was a 17-year old high school senior when the first matrix came out. On a Saturday morning I went to the theatre to buy some tickets for me and my friends so that we wouldn't have to wait in line that evening. I got to the window and asked for 4 tickets for the 9:30 showing. The fat-ass moron working the ticket window immediately asked me how old I was, I told him 17, and he asked to see my driver's license. I showed it to him and he then informed me that because I was under 18 I couldn't buy more than one ticket for an R-rated movie. I bought the one ticket, then went to the back of the line. When I got to the ticket window again I tried to purchase another ticket, but the douche informed that I could only buy one ticket. I replied that I only wanted to buy one ticket, but he said that since I had already purchased one that I couldn't buy another. So we had to get to the movies early that evening to wait in line to buy more tickets, which was exactly what I was trying to avoid in the first place. What a piece of shit.

    Some kid sitting next to me crapped his pants during Finding Nemo.

    If only the Italian Job hadn't been sold out. Stupid girlfriend.

    I wasn't allowed to buy tickets to South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut. I ended up buying tickets to Wild Wild West, sat through four minutes of it and went to see American Pie. I got there just as Jim was trying on the sock.

    For $5, I will gladly purchase R rated tickets for any kid that wants one.

    Blue font?
  9. I take my kids to the movies so I don't have to do any parenting.

    That's a terrible business idea. You'd be ponied from noon to midnight. The last time I went to the theater, matinee tickets were $8.50.

    i prefer to have my kids and i huddle around the computer while i scan the internet for parenting tips from folks who've never been responsible for anyone other than themselves.
