I am a confirmed marathon txt msger… but even I draw a line at txting while in a theater. My friends in Austin, Texas will no doubt get an especially large kick out of this voicemail, left by an angry patron after being kicked out of the Alamo Drafthouse for txting during a movie.
Pay particular attention to the transcription on the video. Some of the bizarrely misspoken words, transcribed for your viewing pleasure, really cracked me up.
Oh, and here’s the commentary posted onto YouTube by the movie theater itself, when it posted that video:
We do not tolerate people that talk or text in the theater. In fact, before every film, we have several warnings on screen to prevent such happenings. Occasionally, someone doesn’t follow the rules, and we do, in fact, kick their asses out of our theater. This video is an actual voicemail from a woman that was kicked out of one of our Austin theaters. Thanks, anonymous woman, for being awesome.

Thanks for the public service announcement, Alamo Drafthouse! Next time I’m back in Austin, I will definitely stop in for a visit.
