Today I was that asshole whose phone rang in the movie theater. Dammit. Allow me to explain (before you condemn). So I'm going to see a movie because...well...just because, okay? So I decide to see "No Country for Old Men," and, not having read any reviews, let alone read the book, I had no idea what I was getting myself into.
And WHEW. That was an excellent movie. Seriously seriously excellent. However...midway through it, my phone rings. WTF?! I thought I turned off the sounds!!! And I did. It turns out that, because my new phone opens two ways (it's a flippy Samsung that opens both lengthwise and widthwise), I needed to mute it in BOTH length and width modes. I didn't know this, and so...in the middle of the show...I hear a familiar ringtone, which sets my heart racing in utter horror and embarrassment. Dammit...I am NEVER THAT ASSHOLE. But...it seems I was tonight... :(
