Movie-Theater Etiquette

The Groupon Guide to: Movie-Theater Etiquette

Movie Rule #42 - Always dress in 1960's clothes
 when attending a 3-D film.
To maintain the suspension of disbelief necessary to enjoy a film, movie theaters maintain a complex code of conduct for their guests.

Here's a look at what you can and cannot do during a movie:
  • Talking is frowned upon.
  • Frowning is frowned upon, as your physical displeasure may spread to other patrons.
  • Texting is tolerated, as long as your phone's virtual keyboard noises are disabled.
  • Making the keyboard noises with your mouth is not necessary.
  • Enjoying popcorn is encouraged.
  • Dipping Reese's Pieces into your soda is discouraged, on grounds of radical deliciousness.
  • Deducing the film's twist ending before the director intended is considered rude.
  • Aiming a laser pointer at the screen is considered hilarious.
  • Being too good at preshow trivia will arouse the suspicion of the theater's security force.
  • Not being good enough at preshow trivia will do the same.
  • Allowing the emotions aroused by the film to later be replicated by real-world experiences is impossible.

Yet, around 4 to 6 times per year I have to, for one reason or another, prove that I'm disabled.
Granted, I'm 5 feet nothin', 112 pounds and sit in an electric wheelchair, but apparently that's just anecdotal evidence… We need science!
The Good Doctor
Every couple months I have to send my physician a form and ask him to fill it out. He has to state that I have spinal muscular atrophy, identify the diagnosis date, explained that my prognosis is something akin to "ain't getting better any time soon" and sign it.
With new Medicare regulations, the good doctor is not allowed to sign the said form without seeing me "face-to-face" to prevent fraud. Although I'm extraordinarily healthy, hospitalized last in 1996 for something unrelated to my dis…

Friday Funnies: Aging Gracefully

I pointed to two old drunks sitting across the bar from us and told my friend, "That's us in 10 years".

He said "That's a mirror, dip-shit!"
