My dad is a pain in the butt at the cinema! We went last week and I had to check his bag at home first and got rid of like five packets of mini cheddars!!

It's like he's never been fed :wall:

:bwl: That's so funny. I've stopped going to the cinema with a number of people based on their eating habits there.....but to be fair, I also love mini cheddars! :D

I don't get why people come in more than 30 minutes late as you can't really follow the film then!

People who bring children to films that they must know they won’t enjoy. People who bring in smelly food. People who stand and take ages getting their belongings together whilst the credits and outtakes are rolling behind them and are impervious to criticisms such as ‘sit down pillocks’.

People, really.
