I am SOOO kidding. I just need to rant a moment.
I thought one of my friends had more common sense than this, but I guess not.
When I go to a movie I want the best experience possible, this means no bringing my baby to the movies. As someone who has been an active moviegoer for years it is pretty well known that many people absolutely can't stand it when people bring their baby in to a movie. I've experienced too many times what happens during parts that get loud or pretty much any time. When that baby starts crying, people start staring and it can get ugly fast.
I vowed my whole life that, should I ever have children, that I would NEVER bring my child in until he/she was old enough to understand behaving properly in that venue. The other pre-requisites would be the ability to walk and talk with an inside voice, heh.
So I learn one of my friends went with a couple other friends of mine with their 3-year olds (fine), plus their new 2-month old baby to see The Lion King 3D. I know that's a G-rated kids movie and all, but there is NO WAY IN HELL I would even bring my 6-month old son right now to see that movie in theaters, as good as he is outside the home. Absolutely no freaking way. If you can't get a babysitter then you shouldn't be going to the movies period. Besides, a baby's ear drums are very sensitive at a early young age as well as are very prone to sickness if there's a lot of people in the theater with so many potential airborne illnesses floating around.
I just don't think it's right to do that to other people paying a lot of money coming out to enjoy a movie. It's really not fair to them.
Am I overreacting for thinking my friend was being a bit inconsiderate of others (and the baby's needs) by doing this? I'm so gad I wasn't invited out for that.
