Actor berates woman during play for cell phone ringing

Bravo Mr. Richard Griffiths, who lost his patience during a West End play when a woman's cell phone rang for the third time.

The production of Heroes at Wyndham's theatre was nearing the end when
Griffiths asked her: "Is that it, or will it be ringing some more?"

It was during the penultimate scene that Griffiths, 58, addressed the woman
directly from the stage.
He said: "Could the person whose mobile phone it is
please leave?
"The 750 people here would be fully justified in suing you for
ruining their afternoon."

I really cannot understand people who think that it's OK to leave their cell phones on during a play, or a concert, or at the opera. It displays a stunning lack of manners and complete contempt for the others in the audience. If only there was some way for buildings to block all cellphone signals.

I bet these are the same people that you see walking around the grocry store talking into their cell phones with important business like "I'm at the bread now. Do we need wholewheat or ryebread? OK, I'm moving across to the dairy section....."
