“I really hate text-messaging morons who think it is their god-given right to text anywhere-movie theatre, driving a car, during court, etc...

I call these people phonetards!”


What upsets you about silent messaging? I can see if they are distracted while driving a car, but in a movie theater? It is not as if they are talking.

Bull crap. I just took out my cell phone and started punching keys (just to prove my point) and suddenly everyone just looked over at me wondering what I was doing. I am sitting in an office with five other people and they all could hear it. Texting is not a silent activity.

I'll chime in on this one..yes, in a movie theater. They normally have a lighted face and some idiots leave on the tones...I have seen these too many times to count.

1) It's not silent.

B) A movie theater, in addition to being silent, is also supposed to be dark. When I pay eight bucks to see a movie, I don't want to be distracted by a sea of little flickering LCD screens.

You can see their blue screens in the dark theatre and it interupts the movie experience.
