Re: would you speak upI think I would. If they don't want to see the performance they can leave the building to carry on their conversation.
Re: would you speak upThat takes me back years, there was this guy in front of me smoking a huge cigar. I blew it back,he rubs his neck repeat .Eventually he says something-I smile and hum `puff the magic dragon`
Re: would you speak upI wouldn't nowadays, no. I don't want a knife or a fist in my face. Some years ago at Ypres, during the ceremony, some cretin behind me was chatting on his phone. I turned round and scowled and said "SSSH!" very firmly to him - and he did. I've never had the guts to intervene any other time though, but I was incensed.
Re: would you speak up
Re: would you speak upI think I would, a polite request to be quiet as you can't hear what you came to see, would only upset an idiot.
Re: would you speak upWould, for sure.......the ignorant and inconsiderate need educating.
Re: would you speak upYes I would, politely of course. As Twink said, you didn't pay for a ticket to listen to someone behind you chattering.
Re: would you speak upIt would depend on who Im speaking to and where,its sometimes dangerous these days to say anything.But I have made signs to people on phones ,putting my fingers to my lips ,shaking my head at them. On a train on Saturday a woman was talking loudly on her phone for a long time, people kept looking at her and moving away,so I managed to catch her eye,shook my head and put my fingers to my lips mouthing shhh, she nodded and put her phone away
