Today's social dilemma happened to me when I was on vacation and I was wondering if this has happened to you in the movie theater and how you handled it. We went to see Crazy Rich Asians on Thursday night at a movie theater right off Long Beach Island. It was ten minutes from our place. So we go to the movies, and there were about 35 other people in the theater. It was a small theater so actually 35 was a lot. The front two rows were open, but everything else was full. Now I know when you go to a movie that's almost full, there's going to be more noise than usual, but we got in and sat down and of course everyone is talking before the lights go down and the previews come on, so no problem. But then the lights do go down, and everyone is still talking. And I don't mean whispering, I mean talking. Like they're sitting in their living room. And I'm getting a little upset because I like to watch previews, but I thought okay, they'll stop when the movie comes on. But the movie comes on and everyone is still talking. Loudly. So I said, loudly, "Can everyone please stop talking, you're not in your living room, and I would like to watch this movie." Well, there were a lot of huffs and puffs but people for the most part shut up. But check this out. Five minutes later, an usher comes over to me, and asks me to step out. He says someone complained about me yelling at them to be quiet. I said I yelled it to the theater for everyone to be quiet, and that's really your job, but you weren't doing it. He just looked at me sand said, please don't do it again, and back to my seat I went. I was so mad I could hardly watch the movie. What do you think? Did I do the wrong thing? Should I have kept quiet? Help! Let me know what you think on the 98-3 TRY Facebook page!
