I Ain’t Ever Gonna Win

This link says that 53% of Americans don’t mind watching commercials before the movies. Am i the minority on this? What the hell is that about? You are OK with movie theaters charging 10 bucks and then having a bunch of ads for Colgate before your movie? We went to see a movie with a commercial in front of it, say late 90’s and my Dad boo’ed. Yep, he verbally boo’ed. Now, I verbally boo. And everyone that I am with gets super embarrassed and beats me up for being so lame. I know in the grand scheme it doesn’t mean much, but think about how companies don’t even care about respecting the bargain you struck to pump up their industry. We’ll spend 10 bucks because we like to do it. Because it is a better situation than if I were to watch it at home, on cable. Because on cable, there are for more interruptions. You know, like commercials. So sure, they don’t interrupt, but they do take up space. Space for another preview, or perhaps another word game on the screen. Don’t take that away from me.
