MONDAY MOVIE MEME
Molly looked around for a weekly meme about movies and did not have any luck. So therefore she decided to start her own! Andy will play along as well - hopefully you will too.

This week's movie topic is all about Movie Theater Pet Peeves...
I don't think I have been inside a movie theater in over a year. There are lots of reasons for this. Expense. Time. Motivation. But usually I make a point to go see something special on the big screen. The problem is, there are lots of things that can spoil that special movie going event. Here are our biggest pet peeves about the process. Share on your blog your biggest theater pet peeve, linking back here at The Bumbles. And don't forget to visit your fellow participants!
BIG HEADS. I am short. I prefer the term Petite. Andy is not Petite. He is almost a foot taller than I am. So why is it that the tall person always sits in front of me and the short person always sits in front of him? This means that I will spend the entire movie scrunched to the side of my seat trying to see through a slit of big heads. It is annoying to have to switch seats with Andy just when we have gotten settled with our snacks. Not to mention that we are now screwing up the short/tall seating arrangement for everyone seated behind us now. There is only one way I know of to prevent a tall person, or anyone for that matter, from sitting directly in front of you. Tell them with a sad face that the seat they are about to take in front of you has gum on it. Works every time. And they are thankful for your assistance.
CHATTY CATHY'S. People who talk at the movies drive Andy nuts. I asked him if he meant the strangers who babble to each other having conversations during the movie, or the people he is with who might ask questions about the movie while it is playing. He said both are equally annoying. I remember many years ago, long before we began dating, spending much of the beginning of Terminator 2 asking Andy to fill me in on the plot since I had not seen the first one. Note to self - don't ask Andy questions during the movie anymore.
