She's lucky she wasn't in America.

'Then someone picked up, and it was the woman's mother. I told her that I was Alfie Boe, that I was in the middle of a show, and that her daughter was standing right next to me.'

"Also: she has terrible manners. You're a failure as a parent."

In before "but I'm a doctor and I NEED to keep my ringer on."

I think that would actually encourage me to bring my phone with me and leave the ringer on.

Good thing she wasn't texting her daughter.

Phone etiquette.
Some people don't have a clue. Be respectful of others.
Some places where you shouldn't make or receive calls:
During class
At church
In a theater or live performance
At the movies
During a funeral
At a nice restaurant
During sex
While on the toilet
When driving

At a nice restaurant? Fark that. As long as you answer quickly and deal with the call as fast as possible, or at least keep your voice down or go outside until the call it done, it's nobody's business but yours and your table-mates. If you raise your voice, then fark you sideways.

On the toilet? Why should you care where I am? I'm on the toilet right now, but as long as I don't post a pic, or grunt/flush during a call, you're not affected. Grow up.

/Not really on the toilet.
//As far as you know.
///See how that works?

I think that can be amended to "on the toilet in a public";  In the bathroom at work I heard someone speaking on a call amidst flushes, all around. THAT is incredulous.


/on your toilet at home?  don't care, just be mindful of being on mute if you've got to.

wait; is Rat just in the bathroom of a Peter Pan bus hurtling down 95? Or has the dream of the toilet car been realized?!

 'Then someone picked up, and it was the woman's mother. I told her that I was Alfie Boe, that I was in the middle of a show, and that her daughter was standing right next to me.'

To which her mother replied "The short hairy alien who eats cats?"

Found this list of people responding to ringing cell phones. I was looking for the Lawrence Fishburne story, where someone's cell phone started ringing during a performance and Lawrence cursed out the audience member. Can you people please just shut the phones off?

I like the analogy to smoking. People used to smoke everywhere.

Then we realized; "hey, perhaps the other people on planes, theaters, resteraunts and the farking post office don't want to have to deal with this shiat every day."

I can't wait to see the day when a theater says "leave your phone in your car or you'll be asked to leave". I think it's been proven that a sizable enough chunck of people just can't be trusted otherwise.

Now everyone will get their phone to go off for the special attention.

In the UK, Alfie Boe is pretty big. If you find a middle aged woman, and she says she likes musicals, I would almost guarantee that she knows who Alfie Boe is.

Shame it wasn't in Florida where he could have just blown her away and continued without missing a beat.

I don't get the Star Wars / Yoda reference in the headline though?

Who actually uses a ringer anymore? My phone is always on vibrate and has been since the day I got it. I actually don't even know what the default ringtone sounds like.

Not all people travel to every location in a private automobile, or car, as you refer to it. Some of us leave the house with all our stuff for the day, as we make our way by train, bus, cab, and foot.

Goddamn THIS. And when your phone does ring out loud, and it's Gangham Style, or Kanye West's lasted burbling, why in the name of god can't you answer it faster? People with novelty ringtones always seem to let it go extra long.

Then you are foreign and your opinion is invalid.

As far as phone behavior goes, it is my experience that it's much, much worse at Lyric Opera in Chicago than it is in the "urban" movie theater in Northwest Indiana. Last time I was at Lyric I was sitting in a $300-a-pop seat and I could see at least three people who never let their cell phone display turn off for the whole three and a half hour performance.

While this story was good I found the 3 hour orgasm one to be pretty funny "you're going to remember this day for the rest of your life"

Actually, the French were there over 100 years ago.

Sure I see how that works, which is following my premise, which is to be respectful of others. Keep your shirt on.

Great. So if I want to steal some phones, I just go to the parking lot nearest the theater.
