I’ve noticed a frustrating trend. The general lack of common courtesy and respect for others at movies, concerts, and live events.
We spent this weekend at a dance competition and I was appalled at everyone who just came and went as they pleased blocking the view of people who wanted to watch the performances. Each one lasted a maximum of four minutes. They could have waited and slipped in and out between dances.
I’ve seen it at the movie theater too. The group that arrives five minutes after the show has started and stands up front looking for a place to sit. Then takes a poll with each other about which seats are best. Here’s a thought… take the closest seats and enjoy the show.
Am I just a cranky old guy or have you noticed it too? What lacks in common courtesy have you witnessed at events?
