I went to see Skyfall yesterday and there was a father and son behind me talking pretty loudly throughout the first twenty minutes of the movie. "What's MI6?" "MI6 is like the British version of the CIA." "Wow look at that gun." "Yeah, that's an S50 blah blah blah." "Oh no, is James Bond going to be okay!"
I had it, I couldn't enjoy the movie with these obnoxious people behind me. I had already turned around and gave them a look to shut up a couple times, but they continued talking away like they were in their god damn living room, crumbling their popcorn bag, just generally being shitty people.
"Are you going to talk throughout the entire movie" I asked. "Yeah we are, I guess you'll have to move your seat" he replied to me in his heavy Staten Island accent. "No, you better fucking stop talking. You better shut the fuck up." I was so flustered, you could hear it in my voice. I didn't even mean to curse. It just kind of came out. He replied with two words, "Jerk Off", in that fucking accent. I was infuriated. It scared me how angry I was. I wanted to wait until the film was over and hit him. I was boiling, practically shaking...but then I realized something. They both stopped talking. They didn't say one damn word the entire rest of the film.
So, now I'm trying to figure out, did I handle this the right way? I mean I cursed in front of a kid, so that's not optimal I guess. I'd like the hear what you have to say.
