kronicfeld: Good lick with the inevitable assault charges.
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: Marcus Aurelius: My hero./cell phone jammers are about $40 online//worth every pennyJust remember that there is a $10,000 fine if they catch you.
Mayostard: Glad to know that it's perfectly acceptable to maliciously destroy someone's property, then blog about it like you're some hero. biatch might have been annoying, but this guy comes off as a dick.
theMagni: If it's critical, you can set it to vibrate and excuse yourself when you check who it's from.
Dragonflew: Wow. Dude, you're an asshole.
a_room_with_a_moose: CSB.Sitting at a bar about six years ago with my (soon to be ex) and some dude by himself, right next to me, is yakking at top volume on his phone. Granted, I gave him a dirty look, but his conversation shifted to the "asshole next to him". I let it go on for a few minutes, then took the phone, told the person at the other end that he'd call back, then dropped it in his pint of beer and dared him to do something about it.Dude left./CSB
Bullseyed: Criminals like this are heroes now?Maybe the Aurora movie theater shooter was just blowing away some cell phones. He's a hero too then.
Profedius: DibDub: I agree with you whole sale. The reason I took action was because I knew I could handle him due to military training, being an ex bouncer and since I was working as an investigator at the time I was armed at all times. Instead of waiting outside to confront me he should have contacted the police, because I did destroy private property, but I was prepared for that as well since I knew a great many people on the police force and those responding would likely be someone I knew.So you stir up unnecessary conflict over something minor, take the first unlawful action, then are either ready to shoot him, or hide behind the gang you're an associate of, the police. You sound like the thug here./supports CCW, doesn't support cell phones in theatresI would agree with that speculation as long as stir up in your opinion does not imply create and instead means escalate since he was the one that created the conflict by becoming hostile in response to an extremely polite request made in a non-confrontational tone. I don't know how thuggish I was considering when he resumed his conversation there was references to doing me bodily harm. At that time in my life though I reacted forcefully to confrontation so I guess I would consider my reaction to be extreme, but since it was a reaction I wouldn't consider it thuggish in nature since that would imply that I was forcing my will on others who were not in conflict with me.
Jim from Saint Paul: Like you jammer assholes. Fark you. For all you know, my kid fell and broke a bone and my babysitter is calling me trying to let me know. I am not saying you can;t get enjoyment over making the assholes with phones unhappy, I am just saying you aren;t affecting just them. Your farkin with everybody and I personally don;t appreciate it.
HAMMERTOE: Personally, I'd have liked to put it in her drink. Preferably with a decent splash.
rubi_con_man: Mayostard: Glad to know that it's perfectly acceptable to maliciously destroy someone's property, then blog about it like you're some hero. biatch might have been annoying, but this guy comes off as a dick.So you think the underground railroad was manned by dicks too, eh?
Yanks_RSJ: Jim from Saint Paul: For all you know, my kid fell and broke a bone and my babysitter is calling me trying to let me know.Assuming it happened the second after you entered the theater, it would be no more than a couple of hours until you found out. Unless you're planning on setting the broken bone, there's not much you can do anyway, so enjoy the respite from your parental reality.Or you could have your babysitter call the theater itself in the event of an emergency. Exactly as parents did for generations before cellular technology was widespread.
Profedius: I was in a packed movie once on opening night and the guy next to me gets a call in the middle of the movie. This person did have his phone on vibrate, but he answered the call with a "Yo girl whats up." And then proceeded to talk with her. I could tell be the nature of the conversation that this was not an emergency situation so I leaned over and said "Your conversation during the movie is upsetting those around you could you please call her back later or leave the movie?" his reply was consistent with his intelligence and respect for others "Fark you mother Farker!" So I grabbed the phone out of his hand and dumped it into his fountain drink that was conveniently not covered by a lid, because he had removed the lid to pour cheap vodka in it. All those around me started clapping and thanking me which must have angered him even more, because he took a swing at me which I easily dodged. I grabbed his arm forced it behind and up his back walked him down the row and into the wall then down and out the emergency exit. When I turned around I think everyone was clapping and cheering. The theater was even nice enough to rewind the film to before his call. When the movie was over a group of people walked me to my car which was nice even though I was carrying a concealed weapon. He was waiting for me outside, but seeing all the people around me he turned around and walked away.
squibbits: He should have taken the phone and stuffed it down his buttcrack, then handed it back to her... the "stinky phone"
Bathia_Mapes: Good!And it appears this was a dinner theatre production, which just makes cell phone usage even more inconsiderate and annoying.
The_Original_Roxtar: is this the same woman from the story:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1L3eeC2lJZsNSFW language.
Z1P2: Fark: woman who wouldn't turn off phone was on-call surgeon, missed critical call, 3 yo. Boy died as a result, prosecutor looking into charging phone smasher for death.
Big Man On Campus: Instead of throwing the phone, just dump it into a nearby alcoholic drink next time. Alcohol+Sugars/Salts+Water in an operating phone isn't good at all. There's less violence in this method, and the point gets made just as thoroughly.
meanmutton: Of course, she was the one who resorted to violence.
Dimensio: [www.fireflywiki.net image 167x286]Approves of this and much, much worse.
DubyaHater: Could someone specify the race and gender of the cellphone user? I have an idea, but I'd like confirmation
sigdiamond2000: This is the first time in the history of the universe that the Hero tag is appropriate for an NRO writer.
