Spaced Out

spaced_outWhat happened:

Waiting in the long line for concessions at the movie theatre, while the guy behind me is literally breathing down my neck, practically on top of me, impatiently huffing and puffing semi-obnoxiously over the slowness of the line.

What should have happened:

#1) Recognize that you’re not the only one here who is hungry and in a hurry to get your ass into a seat before the movie starts. #2) Recognize that your lateness and resulting impatience is caused by your poor planning, and this is your problem, not mine. #3) Recognize that the only thing your annoying, attention-seeking behavior is speeding up is the perception that you’re a fucking idiot. #4) Finally recognize that in the United States, appropriate social space distances (Proxemics), are typically between 4ft.-12ft. So back the hell up, while shutting the hell up, before I really give you something to bitch and moan about. Enjoy the show…

Agree or disagree; just no apathy.

Stay tuned-in…
