We all have that one movie we really, really want to see. The one we've obsessed over for months or sometimes years. We've watched the trailers, read all the fan theories, and monitored director changes. Of course we bought pre-sale tickets before post production even began.
Now there's nothing wrong with going to see that movie alone, but there is usually a special someone you want to tag along that makes the movie watching experience that much more enjoyable.
Just as long as they follow some basic guidelines and protocols, of course.
Usually, those guidelines are unspoken rules and if you have to really spell them out for the friend you're bringing along to see the movie you-just-can't-wait-to-see, then chances are they weren't your first choice to bring with you to watch the film anyway.
However, some people want to be extra, super, specific, clear, and open about what they expect from their movie-watching experience. Like this guy who is very, very, very much looking forward to Marvel's Infinity War. So much so that he texted his girlfriend an extensive list of ground rules she is expected to adhere to while they watch the movie.
And while they seem excessive, it's kind of easy to understand why he'd do it. Pretty much all of the Marvel movies that were released since the Edward Norton Hulk film have been leading up to this.
He goes all-in from the first couple of rules. He made it very clear that he doesn't want the experience tainted by questions or any kind of lovey-dovey business.
Now those might seem a bit extreme, but they're easy enough to understand, I hate it when people ask me questions, especially during a movie I'm watching for the first time myself.
But rules 4,5,6 are when the requests get a little over the top. Just a little.
I mean I get where the guy is coming from, don't you hate it when you're excited about something and the person you're with doesn't care as much as you do? Here's hoping his SO is good at faking tears, and having a lawyer handy.
He shows just how serious he is about watching this film with rule #6 though. Mass shootings be damned, he will make it to the end of Infinity War.
But, if she abides, she gets to have her favorite ice cream afterwards. I guess that's reward enough for subduing a deranged psychopath with a gun, right?
Some people honestly saw where the guy was coming from.
Other guys were just nodding their heads saying, "yup".
Joke or not, there were some Twitter users who weren't tickled pink by the boyfriend's texts to his boo.
And some had problems with just some of the rules and restrictions.
Still, it seemed like there were more people who thought the man's demands weren't all that crazy.
How would you feel if someone invited you for a movie and (half-jokingly) sent over those demands? What would you say?
