    The g/f and I went to the theatre to see a play. About 5 min into the second act, the girl sitting beside the g/f pulled out her phone and made a call.

    What would you do?


    Me? I said, "We're at a play, get off your phone." and the g/f got mad. :sad2:

    I was at the movie theatre once and a guy had a massive heart attack. After that, two other guys got into a fist fight. I didn't do anything. :\

    I would have said something for sure. That's really rude. It's bad enough people are on their phones on the movie theaters, but at a live theatre it's just that much worse.

    That's the way I look at it. It's really disrespectful to the actors, and not to mention there was several thousands of dollars in tickets within earshot.

    It made my blood boil

    I wouldn't have said anything, only because I would have felt rude but I would have wished someone did.

    Was the g/f upset with you actually saying something or more upset with the words you chose?

    I agree, I would have said something too but rather than ordering the person to get off the phone, I would have politely requested that the person show a little bit more respect &/or manners.

    Just because the girl was rude in the first place to disregard those around her doesn't mean it's best to be rude back. That's just me though. :shrug:

    I would have opened my shawl to reveal my dynamite vest. I would have then declared "praise be to isreal" and blown up the entire theater, starting an international conflict which would soon escelate into the third world war in effect ending civilization as we know it.

    I was at the Movies one tie and the two girls behind me decided it was a good idea to have a running conversation about the film as it was rolling, I told them to STFU, they kept quiet after that.

    I would have reached over, grabbed the phone removed the battery and given it back to her.

    j/k I would have said something too if the convo lasted any longer then 2.5s

    95% of you would say nothing, myself included.

    Fixed.

    And if it had lasted longer than a couple seconds, like "I'm at the theatre, I can't talk. I'll call you later.", I would have given a dirty look. If it continued and she was loud enough to disturb people, I would have said something.

    I've done the same at movie theatres.
