    Sorry that long post I made in the last thread was kind of a mess. I dictated it and really should have checked it over first. Looks like now that the thread is closed I can't do that so it'll be forever a monument to my lack of attention to detail.

    So there's that whole story where Lauren Boebert got kicked out of Beetlejuice the Musical for vaping/taking selfies with the flash on/doing hand stuff with her date. It's all very funny, there's nothing that's not funny about it, what a time to be alive.

    Anyway, my wife grew up in Colorado, went to a lot of shows at the theater in question. And she has my favorite take on the story thus far, which is, "If she'd been in the balcony, nobody would've cared."

    It’s what Statler and Waldorf are doing when they aren’t cracking jokes.

    If they don't have a hand up their ass at any given time are they even truly alive?

    You gonna tell me Boebert doesnt belong at a play about an unwelcome, classless and destructive trash demon who is also oddly entertaining?

    For me the issue isn’t so much the grown woman/handsy teenager doing stupid shit in the theatre, it’s the absolute entitled jerk she becomes when asked to stop and leave. It’s the second half of the incident that takes it beyond embarrassing to worthy of contempt

    I've never been tapped to eject anyone from a theater, but the head flyman on my current show had to bounce unruly talent out of the local operahouse back in the 90s.

    Picture, if you will, a man who looks and sounds like Arthur Morgan (now quite aged, but no less intimidating for it), walking calmly up to an indignant baritone in the middle of a drunken hissy fit, informing said performer that he can leave under the power of his own two feet, or by the power of the paramedics that will have to wheel him out after he eats a beating of positivity operatic proportions.

    When the performer demanded to know on what grounds he was being ejected, the flyman calmly informed him that the man had thrown an empty vodka bottle at one of the dressers, who had complained to stage management, who had come and spoken to him immediately. When the performer then demanded to know why stage management had informed him about an incident between him and a dresser that had nothing to do with the flyman, the flyman calmly informed the performer that the dresser was his wife.

    The performer promptly exited under the power of his own feet, and quite quickly for one so drunk.

    At my ollllld job working at Apple, I had occasion to kick several people out of the store for looking at porn on store computers. Usually they were embarrassed and went sheepishly. Sometimes they tried to claim they weren't doing it and that this is bullshit.

    But this one guy just glared at me, started to walk out, then as they were exiting they screamed to everyone in the store "YOU CAN'T STOP ME. NOTHING YOU CAN DO WILL STOP ME!"

    And I gotta say, if you're getting ejected from a store for watching porn with your hand shoved down your pants, that's sure is a powerful statement to go out on.

    Another time someone brought a horse into the store. Another customer asked us to make the person with the horse leave. We did not, because horses are way cooler than public tuggers.

    This is why I do not like public-facing jobs.

    I probably would not allow a horse into any establishment I had responsibility for letting people in or not on account of horses pissing and shitting wherever they happen to be when they feel like pissing and shitting, lest I have to figure out how to get horse piss out of a carpet

    The indoor vaping and flash on selfies are kinda fucked. You wanna get handsy cool, but don't fuck up the performance for everyone else with the other stuff.

    I don't get this. This is 100% asshole behavior, no matter your political affiliation. Vaping in an indoor public area is considered extremely rude, if not illegal in some parts of the world.
