(Yeah, sometimes I don't have much patience with fellow theatre-goers. I also REALLY don't understand how people can fail to sit in the right seats! Give every member of your party their own ticket, make sure you're in the right section, then the right row (front row is A and it all goes in alphabetical order back from there), then the right seat (and every one has a little number on it)! How is that so freakin' DIFFICULT? O_O)
Thanks for giving me a giggle Weez. I. too, am known for my frustration with some of my fellow theatre-goers. Recently, I arrived at a central London theatre to find the woman behind me had put her coat on the back of my seat. I assumed she would remove it when I sat down. She didn't. The following exchange took place:
Me (extremely politely): I'm so sorry, I didn't realise this was your seat.
Coat woman (with blank look): It's not, this is my seat.
Me (less politely): I see. Then would you please remove your coat from the back of the seat I paid for?
Cue disgusted muttering, but she removed the coat.
Polly1, I agree with you about the film 'Creation'. I saw it a few weeks ago & liked it very much. Good perfs from Paul Bettany & Jennifer Connolly.
