Ten minutes into this concert, I'm happilly thinking the four seats next to me are gona remain empty, when I hear this family coming up the stairs searching for their seats. Yes, loud music, ten seats down from the aisle, I hear them. They eventually intrusively inform the entire arena that their seats are next to me, instead of just silently taking a completely empty row a bit higher up. Oh great.

I don't think I've ever sat by anybody more annoying than this. Of course they didn't buy a seat for their two year old (who brings their small child to a rock concert anyway!?), so the first thing the smoke reeking, elbow nudging mother does is begin bouncing the babbling child on her knee. Good thing all the seats are connected, so now I'm going for a ride as well. But the knee bouncing rarely ceases, even while the rugrat sings, "doo-dah, doo-dah" and is passed back & forth down the row to Mr. father of the year.

Three hours of this, oh joy. I would have said something to Mrs. Stupidpants and her drooling child who wouldn't stop staring at me, but I'm sure these trashy people would have made a serious scene. And I'm sitting there with my camera & big white lens that security was oblivious to me carrying past their "no cameras, will confiscate" sign. I painfully choose to keep a low profile...
