I appreciate that it bugs you and dancinbear, etc but I guess we all have to display some degree of tolerance as well.
Beer runs and subsequent piss runs. Taco chip runs. The antsy "I gotta get out of here and walk around." Smoke breaks. People sneaking into other/new seats. Without the phones, and all the bullshit they invite, I'm moving out of the way and tolerating someone for some reason or another every 60 seconds.
It was pointed out that we are at a rock concert. Again, exactly. Folks are spending $100+ (ticket, gas, parking, vacation time, etc) and hours of their day to watch and listen to music. They're not there to deal with the inconsiderate and rude with gnat-like attention spans who want to gain popularity and provide half-thought charity to the outside world at the expense of others. I don't find any of this a matter of tolerance or intolerance. Sorry, I truly do not.
I still don't think it is that black and white. When my wife gets a text from the babysitter that our daughter is not feeling well or something, what are you going to do walk up and knock her out for responding to a text? But before that, you would have already knocked me out for grabbing a beer and taking a piss. I mean c'mon give me a break. Seriously man, just ask my wife I really hate lack of courtesy and disrespect and I am always conscious of my behavior, but sorry bro I'm going to drink my beer and subsequently use the bathroom, and I am so sorry that upsets you.
