8 Incredibly Annoying People You Are Guaranteed To Find At Movie Theaters

#1 The Snacking Breed

Oh yeah, popcorn and fries are great additions to enjoying a movie. But the snackers conveniently ignore the movie, and are found to gorge on something every 10 minutes. They will want sandwiches and burgers and fritters, and the most annoying thing being that many of them are incredibly noisy while eating. It gets highly irritating to concentrate on the movie with the sight, smell, and sound of food, doesn't it?

#2 Individuals with Irritating Habits

Irrespective of the genre of movie you plan to watch, you are sure to come across this individual who is oblivious of his/her surroundings and is either snoring away in the air-conditioned theater, or digging his nose, or coughing or sneezing or yawning without covering his mouth. These individuals definitely need an old-world reminder of manners and etiquette with a tap on their heads.

#3 The Phone Addicts

God help these tech-addicted souls. I mean, if they are that busy and that important, why do they even bother coming for the movie? These addicts talk on the phone during the movie, that too in a loud voice, causing enough chaos and ruckus in the theater and distract other movie-goers during some important scene. Disgustingly irksome.

#4 The Parents

No offense to any parent please, but is it really necessary to bring babies below a year old and toddlers to the movies? I am sure you can find a babysitter for a few hours. Well, kids are cute yeah, but it's bloody well irritating to hear them sob like a maniac when the movie has a rather interesting scene. It's worse when the parent does not bother to pacify the kid. In fact, you'll probably find many parents who get their two- and three-year-old toddlers to adult movies, and then complain about the language the people in the theater use.

I mean, parents, please understand. You are watching an adult movie. If the youth around you is swearing, technically, it's not their fault. Why do you need to get your kid to such movies? Point three, taking your kids to horror movies that are meant for children beyond their age, and acting like a kid in their presence. Screaming. Dropping the popcorn. And what not. No, no, it's not wrong at all. Just plain gross and annoying.

#5 The Gigglers

There is no reason to laugh, in the movie or otherwise, yet there is always someone who does. Yes. Even for a serious scene. Unbelievably, these people can laugh their way throughout the movie, for the lamest of scenes and the dumbest of reasons.

#6 The Delicate Cowards

These people are usually spotted during scary movies. Everyone gets scared while watching this genre, so no complaints there. But is it necessary to get frightened and scream even when the scene is not that horrifying? You'll find plenty of these weirdos who shriek and clutch their partner's hand and even start fake crying, some, for probably attracting attention, and some, for God knows what reasons.

#7 The Weeping Machines

You may have come across these individuals fairly regularly. He/She is the emotional, sobbing, sentimental fool who cries for every scene. Even if the scene is not very emotional, you'll find this person weeping quietly, sniffing into their tissues, or with a soft, emotional expression. Okay, I am not condemning those who are sentimental, and yes, we all experience various emotions while watching such movies, but not for every goddamn scene, for pity's sake!

#8 The Couples

How can this category of people not make it to the list? They are the lovey-dovey couples who come to the theater and have enough PDA to piss the person sitting next to them. I mean, love is young and beautiful, yes, but do you really need to showcase it to the public? Despite sitting in the dark corners of the theater and trying to keep their action as low-profile as possible; invariably, people sitting around are distracted and bothered, and on occasions, even disgusted.

Well there are many more, and no matter how irritating they may be, we still go to the movies and put up with them. We love the movies, don't we? And what's more, we also possess some of the above annoying habits. C'mon, don't you deny it! (Wink wink!)
