Last week, the girls in my family got all dolled up and went to the movies.
The Twilight Trilogy was playing at our local theater, and we were so excited (at least I was!) to see the first two movies, along with the midnight premiere of Eclipse.
Let me just say, we were not disappointed!
Being the die-hard fans we are, we decided to make shirts.
I am Team Edward all the way.
Alex, my sister-in-law, is Team Jacob.
My mom went as Team Eh… Get it? I don’t think a lot of people did. But we thought it was funny!
One thing I learned that night: Twilight fans are *crazy.*
Let me set up the scene for you: We arrived at the theater an hour early.
I thought we’d have no trouble finding three seats together.
Yeah, we had no trouble, if we wanted to sit on the second row. Seriously?
Apparently, it is completely legitimate for one person to “save” seats on two rows for people who aren’t even at the theater yet.
Yes, you heard me right.
About half of the theater was empty, but we couldn’t sit in any of those seats because they were “saved.”
And the theater management did nothing about it.
So, Alex decided we were not going to stand for that.
She and my mom went and sat down in two of the seats that were “saved.” This lady, who was trying to save about eight seats on two rows, started screaming at them. She even went and got a manager.
She told the manager that the people she was saving the seats for were “at the concession stand.” We said that was fine, we’d move when they showed up.
After the manager left, she called the rest of the people from their party and told them they needed to get to the theater because we were taking their seats. They weren’t even in the theater!
When two people from their group showed up, even though there were six empty seats by her, she told them to sit in our seats because they were theirs. They didn’t even have anything from the concession stand.
I was furious.
We talked to another manager, who offered to get some folding chairs and set them up for us in between the handicap seats on the bottom of the second level. Well, that was better than the second row.
But still, I can’t believe they let people save that many seats for people who hadn’t even gotten to the theater.
I can understand saving seats for people while they’re at the concession stand, but blatantly lying about it like that was wrong.
Ok, rant over. Sorry.
It was great to get to see all three movies again on the big screen. And back-to-back.
And I *loved* Eclipse. It was *so* much better than the other movies.
And Jasper with a Texas accent? Yes, please!
I may have to change my allegiance to Team Jasper…
How about you? Have you seen Eclipse? What did you think?
Thanks for looking!
