Tad award- Rude concert goers

Last nite was the Jonas Brothers concert. Isabel and I had a blast and I will do a review with Izzy tomorrow. We got there early and waited in line to get a tshirt that cost more than the tickets!! Then I bought a $5 diet Pepsi. It must have something special in it to jack the price up that much, huh?? Anyway, we found our seats which were actually pretty good. We were centerstage 4 sections back. We thought we'd be able to see perfectly!
Anyway... sitting in front of us was a mom and her daughter who I am guessing was about 10 years old. This lady irritated the crap out of me!! She stood up almost the entire time- even when her daughter was sitting. Now I'm not dumb, I've been to concerts before and I know standing is normal. But when it's a concert clearly for the teens and little girls there, the mom's really shouldn't be the one blocking a little girl's line of vision. I wanted to stand up, but rarely did out of respect for the tween behind me. I wanted her to be able to enjoy the concert! That's what moms do, right? Anyway, this lady- who was taller than me and, well, wider than me and Isabel, not only stood the whole time, she moved over and over again. I'd have Isabel stand directly in front of me so she could see and eventually the lady would be standing right in front of Isabel. I'd shift Izzy to the left, the lady would shift to the left. It was ridiculous. It was more annoying when her daughter was sitting and she was still standing. And the thing is- she still could have seen while sitting because there was a little girl in front of her- not a woman. It bugged. I think it bugged me more than Isabel, so that's good.
And next to us was some pouty teenager. I don't know what her deal was. But she left like 5 or 6 different times- which wasn't a huge deal, just kinda annoying. I don't know, maybe she had diarrhea... But when she left right at the very end of "S.O.S"- the encore song- it was rude! I mean, everyone is standing, clapping, jumping, yelling, relishing the final moments of the concert, and we had to stop, back up, let her thru... Kinda ruined the moment. But what-evah. Tad awards to y'all!
If I was 12 years old again I'd totally have Jonas Brothers posters up in my room. And maybe Menudo too... They opened for them and were so dang cute.
That is all.

Stupid rude people. At least they didn't get a Tad Award upside the head. That must have been tempting.

Chel said...

Well.. I gotta hand it to you.... you are nicer than me. I would have told her to sit down. :)

Stacey said...

Dang rude people!

Other than that I'm glad you had a good time.

so many people are just oblivious of others around them! but really a mom should have had her "mom" hat on and been way more aware of your daughters and others around here.

Whitney said...

Oh I am so jealous! That sounds like a fun concert.
I don't understand how people can be so inconsiderate. And she's the MOM, she should know better, right? It bugs me how you try to be considerate of other people, (like you, not standing so the girl beind you could see) and then other people around you just don't seem to care. That's probably why this world is so crazy, because people can be so selfish :( I'm sorry you had some crummy people by you at the concert, but it sounds like it was fun anyways!!! :)

PJ said...

That STINKS! I'm glad Isabel still had fun! And you enjoyed your cola w/ gold flakes in it;)

Jenny said...

Why aren't our political candidates tackling the real issues - like rude people in public?!? LOL! Glad you had a good time overall.

And if I pay $5 for a Pepsi, it better have rum or amaretto in it. :o)

Mel said...

Sheesh, I think I would have said something!

You could print up cards that say, "Congrats, you won a Tad Award!" and then the url for your blog. Maybe they'd learn a thing or two. I know it has latered my mom's behavior after reading on my wife's blog how to act properly!

carronin said...

sorry that one or two people usually have to ruin it for the masses.

Klin said...

So YOU'RE the one who sat next to the Diva? "May be she had diarrhea." LOL

I like ALR's suggestion. Can I help design them?

Hannemann Family said...

Tori, you are so funny! I hate it when people keep standing at concerts, when everyone behind is sitting. And who would want to keep standing so that everyone behind can see your hiny?

Nancy Face said...

HUMPH! *Stomps foot in disgust*

That really ticked me off! >:(

I probably would have said something, because I have done so in the past!
