Your irrational quirks

Postby Davey the Fat Boy » 04 Nov 2017, 13:51

I don’t like to see the pilot when I fly. I prefer to think of them as infallible and God-like.

Invariably if I see a human I think, “my life is in that person’s hands?”

Any quirks you feel like admitting to?

I like to be the pilot when I fly. I have been banned from three major airlines.

I like to be at the movies at least 20 minutes early or I don't go.

I like to stay during the end credits of the movie and listen to all the music.

In Japan that's what the Japanese do. I swear to God. These motherfuckers are so polite they don't leave until way past the ASPCA warning that no animals were harmed. (Which ruins a movie for me. Shit, if a dog is shot I want it shot.) The Japanese wait until that bogus mother fucking screen curtain is closed! Wifie and I went to a movie in Hong Kong in the biggest movie theater anywhere. Every seat except ours had a Chinese ass in it and when that movie ended 3000 Chinese didn't wait read the list of drivers and caterers, they all got up and left. When the houselights came up I and little wifie were the only ones still in there. Proof of one stereotype. Chinese are rude!

But calling a trillion Chinese rude is okay.

Call it an irrational quirk. You never saw El Topo where those dead rabbits were dead rabbits? That was realism and I like realism. Another quirk.

Slightly less violent than wishing a dog dead for your entertainment.

What is a funeral except entertainment? All that ceremony and drama. It isn't Lewis and Martin but a spectacle nonetheless.

I am almost biologically incapable of buying one item at a store, even if that's all I need. I've done it, but only under extreme duress.

We do this too .. mainly to catch the 'teasers' if any for the sequel.

I give people that I don't like appropriate nicknames and ignore them.

So do I - also because the songs and locations used come at the very end.

Yeah, the movie thing is neither irrational nor a quirk. It’s the polite thing to do. If you are at a production screening, in fact, it’s considered the height of rudeness to leave early, logic being that it’s disrespectful to those with screen credits to have their contribution ignored in favor of the “big names.” Seems reasonable to me.

But my local cinema sticks all the lights in during the credits, almost encouraging people to leave.




Admittedly, if I'm at the cinema chances are I'm watching a kids movie.

If I go to a record store, it's rare that I'll leave with anything other than 3 records (or, if I'm really splashing out, 5). If I have two records but can't find a third, I'll ditch the other two - even if it means I'll almost certainly forget what those two were next time I'm in a store. Two or four records just seems incorrect, and buying one is just plain dumb.

I'm like this in bookshops. Often come away with at least two.
