Noisy Girlfrind Embarrassing Myself

When we learnt English the first time in China, we encountered an interesting text in New Concept English, a popular textbook for English learners around the world, and many people may still remember the first lesson of Book 2, where a couple talking too loud in a cinema was warned by their fellow viewer.

Yesterday I went to see a film The Wandering Earth with my girl. Originally it had been a date with her girlfriend, but she made a mistake of the time of appointment, then she phoned me to go out to have some fun. The great sci-fi work of China interested us for a while, so we decided to visit the cinema.

To tell the truth, since we used mobile phones, we haven't been to any movie theater. So we first had to check with our phone the location of the nearest cinema. Before we went into the hall, two cinema workers standing before the door gave us the glasses to watch the 3D movie. I did not it was a 3D movie until then, so I had some problem with the sanity of the glasses because there had been so many users of the same device.

There were quite a number of viewers, to my surprise, because I had thought the time to follow the film had been over. At the beginning of the film, there came a series of adverstisements, including surgery, beer, new film releases, etc, then I began to complain in a loud voice, "We are not here to pay to see ads." My girl said you are an idiot, now what time is it? How can the cinema make profit with only your ticket fare?

I looked down on her, knowing she was d$$$ right, at her hand there was a barrel of pop corn, priced  higher than the two tickets of the movie and sold by the same theatre.
Then the film began officially, but it looked so familiar after so many spoilers available online, and my girl kept telling me or confirming with me the names of the actors or actresses, to show she was a huge fan of the hit film.

I rather concentrated on the film itself and did not care a word of hers, but she nagged and nagged, resulting in some headturns from the front rows. I felt embarrassed very much. What a day!

I did not remember very well what happened to the earth and the remaining population of 3.5 billion people living in the mole hole, I cared only about the time we could leave the site.

Agree with you. That’s an embarrassing situation.

    voice_cd: Well, he doesn't look like he has any development problem. Give him some time and I believe he will catch up. Thanks for sharing your story.
    Seldom do I visit this section of the forum, where there are so many interesting stories that can be shared with many other China Daily website visitors. However, the front page of the section seems to have been frozen, with some of the authors fixed there, leaving the impression that there is no change at all inside. So it is necessary for the admin to do something.
