While that guy in the row in front of you pissed you off by checking his phone, he very well may have a member of a team of many professions that responded to save someone you love or your house that caught on fire while you were at the theater.
Am I supposed to care that you're a fireman? Fuck off.

Firstly nowhere in my fucking post did I imply at all that I take part in such activities. I have this radical thing called manners that was taught to me by my parents, and I know that it is not socially acceptable nor is it fucking appropriate to whip out my cell phone to check Facebook or whatever. I have never done such a thing in my life and I never will because I'm not a fucking asshole.

My post, rather, was towards the fact that he was bothered by this display, but there's nothing he can do. These are grown adults who do this, who really ought to know better by now. But they either don't, or do and don't care. So what does that leave you? Going back to the same thing that's bringing you displeasure? Spending a good amount of money on concessions and tickets, and having your whole experience ruined by the faggot in front of you who won't stop taking seflies or texting in his groupchat? Obviously fucking not. In this day and age you have the ability to watch those movies in the comfort of your own home, for a substantially less amount of money. And you certainly won't have to deal with someone on their phone unless it's you.

I'm rather annoyed that you jumped this extreme for, well, no fucking reason. How old are you, RNG? You look like you're due for the hospice, so you really ought to have some fucking reading comprehension skills and maybe picked up on the context clues. Again, I reiterate. Not a single fucking part of my post, not a single word, not a single fucking letter, should lead you to believe that I support and condone that behavior.

Fuck off, mate.
Nice backpedalling. You telling him to stay home to watch movies and save money makes the totality of the above post a fucking lie.

What a fucking waste of air.
Thanks from Lyzza

I could care less about someone checking alerts especially someone w/ the self awareness that has their phone set to dim to the current ambient lighting. Now people who talk, text, bring small children and/or talk all should be lumped together. As fucking cunts.

Where did I say I was a firefighter? I made analogies. If you are not capable of understanding that, you are truly more stupid than the normal wannabe NAZI,

PTR, you can change your name, pretend for a while to be more enlightened, but how quickly you revert back to your days of ignorance and intolerance.

Do you understand how your own stupidity is so blatant that RNG and I seem to agree on a single issue?

I’ve seen lots of people lighting up their phones in theaters and never once has one of them jumped up to rush out on some life saving emergency. They’re spoiled inconsiderate self obsessed air heads . If you really are an indispensable brain surgeon you could at least sit in the back or better yet stay home since you can no doubt afford a better home theater than mine.

Do you know what they do or are you ASSuming you know everything? I don't think you have really thought this one through. Having emergency response people leaving the theater IS NOT A GOOD THING

FOR THOSE ON THE RECEIVING END.

Your basic complaint now has relegated to you not being satisfied because responders checked in more than what you deem necessary. When you become the regulator of what is needed, do so. Until then, accept an opinion. And I hope whomever respond to your needs do no know your insults,

Fuck you. I'm so sick of you. You're like a fucking female.

Why wouldn't I tell him to stay home and save the money? He's clearly not having a good fucking time with the current situation. In fact, I fucking elaborated on myself. It's really outrageous how you're not even giving this a thought, and just dismissing what I say out of turn.

This is fucking ludicrous.

Who the fuck even are you, friend? Calling me a Nazi is supposed to insult me? I'm a fucking National Socialist and I've made no attempt to hide this. I'll embrace it.

I can't believe this is happening. I thought I was giving a pretty non-hostile response to webguy, and a pretty reasonable one to his dissatisfaction which is clearly to a point that he felt the need to make a thread about it on this website. And you fucking retards took what I said and ran with it, because you're trying to paint this picture of me.

Well, paint your fucking picture.

Hey wannabe sack of shit, your avatar is a NAZI. You painted your picture by being such an irritant asshole. If your minimal intelligence can't figure that out, just crawl away and continue to act like the prick you chose to be.

Are you too stupid to understand that you were the one that initiated this converse?
