Vainglory & Bigotry...ness

Monica and I went to go see Pride and Prejudice on Friday last. We got there pretty freaking early, which turned out to be a good thing, because the line got pretty freaking long. Behind the two of us was this couple who ended up being quite entertaining throughout the course of our wait in line, though they were none the wiser.

The guy kept talking to his wife about things of which he was clearly an expert, like the latest movie that everyone underestimated, or the coolest new cd to hit the ever-expanding market. I got to hear about these whilst Monica (or Bosley, as she will henceforth be referred) was relieving herself in the little tiny girl's room. There are a few items this man discussed with (or rather AT his wife, because I don't think I heard her speak once) that I felt noteworthy/entertaining enough to categorize by separate dashes, and they are as follows:

THINGS THE GUY TWO SEATS OVER FROM US TALKED ABOUT BEFORE THE MOVIE FOR WAAAAY TOO LONG:

- 1 - The two people who cut in line ahead of us (and said guy and wife) even though we all still got great seats. He said that if people just stand by and allow this kind of behavior to happen, the perpetrators won't have any reason to stop.

Key phrase used: "Criminally Uncool."

- 2 - Justifying to his wife why he didn't see the point in going ALL THE WAY downstairs to get her coffee, even though she wasn't making a fuss about it.

Key phrase used: "It's not that cold outside anyway." He got her an ice cold cola beverage instead.

- 3 - Giving his expert opinion about movies that he has admittedly not seen.

Key phrase used: "Trust me, it's good. Trust me - I haven't seen it - but it's good."

Bosley and Becki and another night well played. It is good.
