Poor Behavior – Desis at Regal Cinema – Dublin

My family and I were at the Regal Cinema in Dublin on Christmas even watching the Hobbit. Halfway through the movie, a cell phone rang in the row behind us.

Guess what – the doofus picked up the phone and continued the conversation. Several of us looked back and glared. But nothing could stop our young Desi professional. Until i raised my voice and threatened to call security. His friends also urged him but the call was obviously so important that he had to continue to sprawl in his seat and continue the conversation in the middle of the theater.

I know there are a ton of discussions on racism and poor behavior. But many of our own professionals behave abysmally but expect perfect behavior from others. I was quite disgusted by this persons behavior halfway though a movie that started with multiple statements to turn off cell phones. Perhaps they should also have warnings about not answering them. That way the 90 IQ heavyweights may actually get it.

A rather pissed off moviegoer.

  1. Good to see you ended your year on a high note.

    How about you stop whining like a little biatch to start the New Year?

  2. LOL, have to agree withe comment above.

    You really need to loosen up. Maybe wear a thong if you find your panties are always in a bunch! 😉

  3. +1000. I question the need of this moron to write this on the forum. Are you really trying to foster change or just trying to tell others you’re better than everyone else. You’ll get no sympathy from me. Next time wait for Netflix.

  4. For folks supporting the behavior of young professional, I have paid money to watch movie in state of the art theater and I don’t need interruptions by morons trying to take their important professional calls. If it is indeed important, step out of the theater or he can might well get out and wait for netflix. I love to enjoy movie without morons talking/interrupting. Have problems with it, next time I encounter such folks, I will not hesitate to call the security and have them thrown out of the theater.

  5. Aghast that ANYONE is supporting the behavior seen in the theater.
    We definitely need to be sensitive to people around us, and not inconvenience them. Just plain social sense.

  6. The poster paid money to enjoy the movie and has every right to expect a positive experience. Such expectations are rooted in basic decency and common sense. But then again, Mark Twain said famously, common sense isn’t so common.

    If the call is that important (and some calls definitely are), please step out and finish your business. It’s the right thing to do – behaving with minimal decorum in certain public-private spaces.

    Happy new year everyone.
