I finally blew my stack at the movie theater.
You might recall I told old people to shuusssh a few months ago by saying, "Will you please stop talking??"
Well this time it was a pack of kids. A wolfpack if you will. I'm guessing they were about 12 years old. But they were wolfey. AND scrappy.. And they wouldn't shut their yappers. I did the classic head turn first. Trying to show I was pissed. I don't think they even heard me.
I was thinking maybe I would walk to the back row all creepy style and say, "This is a theater. You don't talk in theaters. So I need it quiet. And for the damage you've done so far I'm going to take your popcorn. Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to return to my seat and TRY to get back into the zone of letting myself go."
Instead I just blurted out, "SHUUUTTTT UUUPP!!"
I was kind of pissed because I was hoping the other in the people in the theater would start clapping. Or I would hear someone say something like, "Stanley why don't YOU have the courage to do something like that?" As she leans her head trying to get of glimpse of me. Wondering, "Who IS that man?'
But instead it went silent. A few of them laughed. Friggin' punks.
Of course then I was stewing so when the 15 year old usher came in I whistled and waved him over.
Me: I need you to kick the back row out. They won't shut up.
The usher walks to the back then returns.
Usher: I told them to be quiet. I'll come back in ten minute sir and you let me know if they're still talking.
They actually did shut up. So when the usher came back he looked at me and I gave him the OK signal. I was going to give him the thumbs up but thought they might be taken as, "kick them out."
In closing. Shut up at the movies.
