The lights of Heaven shine down at the movies

So, tonight we went to see the Fast and Furious movie. The theater was jam packed! The Mr. and I had two empty seats next to us and amazingly nobody saw it so we though we got lucky, but 10 minutes into the movie, a guy asks us if the seats are taken and we say no so he sits down with his girlfriend. He is sitting next to me and about 5 minutes after he sits down, I thought Heaven was shining down on us! This annoying person spent more time on his stupid cell phone throughout the whole 2 hour movie than watching it. PLUS, his screen was the brightest cell screen I have ever seen in my life, this is fact. I tried glancing over to see what he was doing and he was texting, but at one point, I look over again and the guy is literally just scrolling through his applications, not opening them, scrolling through them as if to remind himself which applications he has for his phone. For a minute, I imagined myself snatching the phone out of his hand and hurling it towards the movie screen. I would have done this only if the #1, the theater wasn't packed to the very front row seats and #2, I wanted to really see the movie so if I would have broken the screen, I would be very angry at myself.

The joys of going to see a movie the first day it comes out when it is SUPER popular....

He was distracting you from Vin Diesel, I'm not sure if I could have held myself back. If nothing else I might have "accidently" spilled my soda on his phone.

I had already finished my slurpee so I had nothing to spill on him. But next time, I will keep some in reserve for this very reason!
