Actually, I think it's my wife that brings out the karma, but it seems that we ALWAYS get stuck next to "that guy" whenever we go to a concert, movie, comedy show...pretty much anything. You know the guy (or girl) I'm talking about...the one who talks non-stop, makes loud noises, or is otherwise just generally unpleasant... Tonight, for example, we went to a comedy show with about 4000 people in the audience. Of course, people were laughing a lot and shouting every now and then to the comedian, but we had to sit next to this dude who just kept making that drunk "ahhhhhh...HA HAaaaaaaaaaa" laugh, consistently repeated the last three words out of the comedians mouth in a loud, slurred voice, or otherwise mumbled incoherent crap...and his wife was just as bad. He was asked on numerous occasions by people around him to be quiet, but he just told everyone who asked him to f-off. When security came down to check him out, he happened to be quiet so they couldn't do anything. On another occasion at a Broadway theater tour, we sat next to this absolutely wretched-smelling woman who constantly stood up and screamed "YEAH! YEAH! HOLLLLAA!!" anytime someone hit a big note. Then there are the people always making noise at the movies, talking throughout concerts, etc. Obviously, I'm not talking about little quips here and there, as we all do that...I'm talking about people who just cannot be quiet. Argh. It seems to be becoming worse and worse lately. It honestly seems like we just can't go anywhere any more without someone being a major distraction. We've stopped going to movies altogether except the first weekday matinee. Is it just us, or do others notice this problem becoming more and more widespread in recent years. Or are we just less tolerant of this activity?
