Coming Soon to a Theatre Near You....

PEOPLE WHO WERE RAISED IN A BARN

Starring:

Ms. Piggy (who also had the most annoying laugh in the whole entire world)
One of my favourite things to do is to see a movie in the theatre.  I (used to) love the atmosphere, I love the ginormous bags of popcorn and stepping on sticky floors.  I have been noticing an alarming trend at the theatres though that is really ruining my experience and I am on a crusade to make this stop!

PEOPLE WHO TAKE OFF THEIR SHOES AND PUT THEIR FEET UP ON THE SEAT IN FRONT OF THEM.

I honestly don't know what they are thinking. You are coming into a public place, removing your footwear and putting your disgusting, sweaty feet up above a person's head.  I have been to two movies in a month, and both times I have been personally affected by people who have been doing this and it needs to stop. The photo above was from last night's showing of Joyful Noise (pretty okay movie by the way).

You might think this is a young person issue, however the photo above was taken of a MIDDLE AGED WOMAN who decided to come to the theatre with her snot-sniffing teenage daughter.

To me, this is as offensive as going into somebody's home and sticking your sweaty socks all over their pillows or putting your rotten feet up beside their face as they are eating (overpriced) snack food. I just don't get where these people get off thinking it's okay to put their feet up beside a human being's face.

Did you know that each foot has more than 250,000 sweat glands and they are among the most perspiring parts of the human body.  In one day, each foot can produce more than a pint of sweat! (livestrong.com)

Some ignorant moron even went as far to make a Facebook group for piglets who LIKE to put their feet up on the seats http://www.facebook.com/pages/Putting-your-feet-on-the-seat-infront-of-you-at-a-movie-theater/358615843304 .

It just seems that some people have some sense of entitlement lately and it's really getting on my nerves.  I mean, I paid my $10.99 to be there as well.  I like to take off my pants, but you don't see me ripping them off during the movie.  One man (in this same movie) even had the nerve to answer his cellphone during the film and had an entire conversation.  I know he probably didn't want to watch Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah and yeah, it wasn't the best movie in the whole wide world, but how about have some class and step out of the theatre so the rest of us can go on and un-enjoy the movie without having to hear about your stupid life.

I am on a crusade to make this stop.  Nobody should have to eat their popcorn and say "hey, I didn't order any cheese on this"

...so what's been bugging you??
