A man that likes stop motion animation, whether it be clay,… - Blather, Rinse, Repeat
Seems like if I ever get to have kids, I'd make sure they could sit in their seat and be quiet through the length of a movie before I took them out in public.
Good luck on the quite part, my ten year old (who definitely knows better) sometimes gets so excited he has to say something to me. Which is why, even though I hate those seats, we always sit in the very first row – hardly anyone ever sits near us, so I needn’t worry that he’ll bother someone if he does forget to use a proper whisper.
If you're in a big group, and you'd like to sit together, show up in time to find your seats.
Oh yeah I so agree… I try to be there at least a good 10-15 minutes before any movie starts, though usually we’re about 20. I make sure my kid has had a bathroom break and has more than enough stuff to get him through at least 2 hours, cause I hate when people walk around after a movie’s started. It’s even worse when you’re in a seat, and then they want you to get up. I figure, if I can make it to the theatre on time and make sure my kid doesn’t do the annoy bit – they can darn well do the same.
Far as parenting goes, I think today is so much more… permissive than it was when you and I were kids. I remember getting my butt warmed on more than one occasion for not having the proper attitude or respect. Nowadays… it seems as if it’s the kids who demand respect and the parents bend over backwards for them.
And don’t call yourself a cranky old man – I have the feeling your roughly around the same age as I am, and there ain’t no way in hell that I’m old, so therefore you’re not old either.

Of course not. :)
Of course not. :)
All I have to say to you is:
I notice that's a non-committal agreement if I ever saw one.
No, that's me being sincere. I can do non-committal, but that costs extra.
LOL... that's a relief to know. I'd hate to think I was positively ancient at 31.
