Leave your kids at home.

I've got a bone to pick with rude people.

Saturday night, I went to see Eclipse with my husband, siblings and a sorority sister. I was very excited to see the movie. Eclipse is probably my favorite book of the series.

However, all that excitement went out the door when two kids who looked to be the age of 2 or 3 started talking/crying/screaming ten minutes into the movie.

They then proceeded to do this the entire movie. It was so distracting and so RUDE.

I had a teacher in high school who used to get upset when kids would come to our choir concerts that couldn't behave. She also felt the same way about movies.

I agree completely.

Seriously, people leave your kids at home!

Here is what I and probably the rest of the movie theatre thought.
  2. I didn't pay to listen to your kids scream. I paid to enjoy the movie.
  3. Why do you have your kids out that late? (This movie was a 9:50 PM start time.) Shouldn't they be in bed?
  5. Furthermore, if you can't afford one then I'm sorry but wait until the movie comes out on dvd.
  6. This isn't a kids movie. If I was sitting in Harry Potter, Toy Story 3, or Iron Man, I'd expect there to be lots of kids. But this isn't an age appropriate for your 2 or 3 year old. There are heads being ripped off in scenes of this movie.
  7. Finally, I realize that people with kids want to have a good evening too, but you need to be respectful of others. Letting kids cry throughout the entire movie is RUDE. Sorry, you had those kids, therefore they are your responsibility. Your kids screaming in the movie is NOT MY FAULT.
  8. Finally, aren't you embarrassed? You should be.
I'm sorry if you don't like this post, but I don't care.

This is my blog.

Therefore it is my opinion.

If you don't like it.

You can lump it.

Maybe next time those RUDE people will leave their kids at home...or maybe not go at all if they can't find a babysitter.

Complaint session over.

Happy Monday!

I love kids, but there are times and places to bring them, and I totally agree that a scary movie is unacceptable for toddlers. Parents who put there children in age-inappropriate situations are asking for this. Good for you for handing it to them!

Amen sister.

I've been disgusted one too many times over people who bring their kids places & then let them run wild. Drives me crazy.

I understand that parents need to get out but bringing your toddlers to a scary movie is not the annoys too.

Thanks for hooking up the Harry Potter and Iron Man references. ;)

B and I are going to see Eclipse next week and we have already set up a sitter.

I also don't care what anyone else are so right.

I hate when kids are misbehaving when I am out anywhere. Yes, I do understand that it happens, but I like to see parents proactively trying to rectify the situation. I have to deal with preschoolers at work, I don't want to during my free time!

I agree... I love kids, but there's a time and place for kids. It's a huge pet peeve of mine to see someone out in public with a kid who is not behaving, but they don't do anything about it. I sat next to 2 pre-teens during Eclipse last week, and they were pretty bad too.

If you follow my Twitter, you know that this EXACT same thing happened to me! I even saw one mom give a kid a shot of cough syrup to shut him up!
