The 16 Stages Of Going To The Movies With Friends

I don't know...what do you want to see?

Posted on

1. Gathering interest.

Group texting is a blessing and a curse. There is always that one friend that sees it and doesn't respond.

2. Choosing the movie.

NBC / Via giphy.com

"Let's do a scary movie!"

"YEAH"

"Guys, I hate horror..."

"Romance?"

"I don't think I'm emotionally ready for that right now..."

"A comedy?"

"Nothing looks funny. Can't you just deal with a horror movie?"

3. Choosing the time...

It's an exhausting process. It ultimately ends in going to the last showing of the movie around 10:30 p.m.

4. Dealing with the fact that you can't please everyone.

...and that person is most likely going to complain about it, but still go with you guys.

5. Arranging transportation.

"Does anyone want to car pool?"

"Yeah sure!"

"mhmm"

"Yup"

"Cool. I call not driving"

"I can't drive either."

You'll most likely all drive separately.

6. Getting tickets.

"You should buy my ticket...I bought yours like three months ago. You owe me."

"Do you offer student prices?" (Pulls out student ID from 2007)

7. Complaining about ticket prices.

NBC / Via giphy.com

"Remember when a movie didn't cost $12??"

8. Getting concessions.

"But we can get free refills if we spend another 75 cents!"

9. Complaining about how much popcorn is.

WHAT? IS IT MADE OF GOLD?

10. Deciding where to sit.

"No, it's fine...I didn't want to see all the movie I paid for anyway. Please, continue to block my view."

14. Having to explain what they missed when they left the theater.

"What did I miss?"...UHHHH

15. But you still have a fabulous time with your friends.

Going to the movies is a lot of work, but it's worth it!!

16. Finally, getting a response from that one friend...
