I haven't bought a thing for myself besides movie tickets at the theater in so many years, maybe the late '80s or so.
If I'm with a date I'll buy the girl what she wants because I'm not a cheapskate, but will not purchase anything for myself....that's my delusional way of thinking I have not fallen for their jaw-dropping price gouging. Plus I honestly don't need their stinking soda or popcorn. I don't want to have to get up during the showing to use the rest room, plus I stay away from big unhealthy loaded crap like theater popcorn as a general rule, (the vast majority of the time anyway) so why would I eat it at the theater?
