  48. SCARY MOVIE • Nerves irritated, by the time we left the movie theater, my aunt and I were edgy, extremely frustrated, and ready to scream. It all started with the crazy gentleman behind us who was talking on his cell phone. (umm…can you say rude!) He let it ring four times before he even answered it. Then he spoke loudly so he could hear the phone over the film. Next, since we were spending our time being annoyed by this guy, we didn’t notice the spunky, little kids beside us until they started having a popcorn war! The brother won by completely emptying the entire, greasy bucket on top of his baby sister’s head. Most of it ricocheted off her and hit me. So much for a relaxing day at the movies.
