After so many years living in the VI, it still amazes me that cruzans feel that it's acceptable to take toddlers and babies to movie theaters for adult movies.

I took a date to see Spider-man this weekend and of course there's a cruzan couple with a two to three year old baby. The kid was crying and yelling the whole movie ruining everyone's experience who had the misfortune of sitting next to them.

Luckily I was far away enough to ignore them for the most part, but close enough to see people around them complaining to each other. Had it affected me more I would have complained to the theater staff.

With money being tight and people losing jobs, I don't understand how cruzans can sit and enjoy the movie while their children are ruining other peoples experience.

Uttica, It is so annoying when you pay to go see a movie and crying children ruin the experience however I don't think it is a crucian thing. It happens in the states as well.:-)

What's equally amazing is that you can live on the island for so many years and still not know the difference between "Cruzan" the rum brand and "Crucian" the descriptive term for island residents.

well that's my laugh (and line) of the day! but now they know. it's like seeing people spell st. john usvi with an... (oh, never mind, but it's my pet peeve).

to the op, uncontrolled children in a place where they cannot be expected to behave is also a pet peeve of mine too! i go on off nights, or i'd move. i don't know what's going on in folks' lives - whether it's a lapse in judgment or lack of funds for a sitter with a keen desire to escape the ordinary. i try not to be one of those folks who don't expect children to be children (i am childless).

i guess you can complain to management, but i never have. the one time i did end up with unruly youngsters next to me, who kept running back and forth through the row and stepping on my feet, i asked the woman with them first if she could mind them. when they continued, i grabbed one and told him that he was not coming that way again. and he did not, neither did his cohorts. got a dirty look from the custodial, but i am still here to tell the tale...

best to you,
anita.
