I despise cud-chewing co-workers and vote to work from home every day!
Why don't you just vote not to work? Wouldn't that be simpler?

Why weren't you drinking during your VPN session?
Its against corporate policy.

What happened to "I'm going to see Indy 4 in the theaters?"
I watch about two movies a year in the theater, and I have children. Sometimes, I don't always get what I want. I try not to whine about it.

I told you what the outcome was going to be moths ago,
Yes, I appreciate your opinion. However, your opinion was based on assumptions (and not very good ones at that) - it is not gospel. You haven't seen it either. Perhaps we'll revisit once one of us has seen it?

I think I'll go home now.
That sir, is a hell of a plan!

Somehow I thought this might be the case, though if you're not hammered, I wonder how they'd be able to tell the difference.

We're talking about a paradigm shift here, not merely being denied something you want.

Yet I correctly called the game before it even began. Riddle me that.

Perhaps.

I fell asleep at 2130 and woke up at 0730. What bliss! (except for the waking up so goddamned early part.)

Its called integrity.

Its always so amusing hearing a single person tell me how I could be doing things differently in regards to children and time management. I always get a chuckle. Almost as funny as single, childless, 19-year-old snapper521 giving a father advice on child rearing.

Riddle me that.
You haven't correctly called shit, sir. You're simply reasserting your assumption. You're not even at the stage where you're allowed to have an opinion yet. Hell, I may see the movie and it brings back such a rush of nostalgia that I'm overwhelmed with memories and leave the theater pumped! Maybe that's why they made the movie? Not for the selfish plebes of your generation, but rather for the nod to mine? You think you know everything?

Perhaps.
It will likely be just as lively, sir!

...except for the waking up so goddamned early part.
Congratulations. Someday you'll come to appreciate that its the amount of hours dedicated to sleep, and not the hours in which they occur. When that happens, you'll realize how foolish that statement sounds.

Back that truck up, cowboy!

I'm not telling you how to raise your kids. What I am doing is pointing out the fact that you repeatedly told me that in no uncertain terms you WERE going to see Indy in the theater and this was in response to my arguing that Ironman was going to be a much better movie. Because you had argued the point so adamantly, I thought this was a done deal...until I read your post. What you do with your kids is your cross to bear--not mine--unless (unlikely) you were to ask for my advice.

You're not even at the stage where you're allowed to have an opinion yet.
You're right. I'm not allowed to vote with my wallet and say "fye" on that son-of-a-bitch Lucas and his "We'll fix it in the computer" attitude. In order to have a voice in this forum, I must first debase myself to a thumb-sucking whiner, decrying how I didn't get my money's worth out of the movie ticket when I knew I was pre-disposed to not liking the work in the first place.

Here, by your logic, you have single-handly dismissed the greatest premise of Capitalism, Freedom and Liberty by scoffing at my right to vote with my wallet and NOT see a film that I think is going to be sub-par, especially when the opinion that the movie is sub-par is shared with many of our mutual friends.

I don't need to see George's latest abortion to know that his level of filmmaking leaves much to be desired, and I don't have to pay him to dissent. The idea that I must pay to dissent is not un-like paying "protection" money in Old West to ensure that you had water and were not terrorized by desperadoes.

Someday you'll come to appreciate that its the amount of hours dedicated to sleep, and not the hours in which they occur.
I already have reached this point. I'm just decrying the fact that I'm up early and am by nature a night person.

Just so we're clear: It is your opinion that Ironman was going to be a much better movie.

No, you are! Once again I find you arguing a straw man of your own creation - ! - How counterproductive! Yes you can choose to not see the film, much like I choose not to watch Oliver Stone films. By all means, continue to do so! But why the fuck would I want to hear your subjective evaluation of something you've failed to subjectively evaluate? For the love of Christ Almighty try to comprehend the difference between opinion and assumption. And if you can't do it for him, do it for me?

I already have reached this point.
Odd that you'd continue to whine.

I whine because I like things the way I like them.

In order to have a VALID opinion of a movie - or, more to the point, for people to NOT consider you a total idiot - YOU FIRST HAVE TO ACTUALLY SEE IT.

Jesus fucking Christ, why is this so hard for you to understand??!
