Huge Debate Sparked after Movie Theater Cleaner Posts Images Telling People to ‘Raise their Children Better’

When you visit the cinema, there’s a good chance you’ll be asked to leave your trash at your seat for easier collection.

This approach helps with recycling efforts and prevents the overflow of waste bins with remnants like half-eaten popcorn. However, not all cinema-goers adhere to this guideline, with some leaving behind a significant mess.

A recent incident involved a group of teenagers who seemed more focused on causing disruption than watching their movie. Their behavior was highlighted online with a plea for better upbringing, as they left a cinema in chaos after booking a private screening and exiting 20 minutes before their film concluded. The aftermath was described as an “armageddon” of popcorn on the floor, presenting a daunting cleanup task for the cinema staff, who later shared images of the mess online as a form of catharsis.

The situation sparked debate, with opinions divided. Some argued that creating messes justifies the cleaners’ employment, suggesting, “if we kept it clean you wouldn’t have a job” and “we’re doing everyone a favour.” Others maintained that such behavior was part of the job, advising dissatisfied cleaners to resign.

One commenter rationalized the mess, stating, “you literally get paid to clean it up sooooo idk why tf you complaining.” Yet, in cinemas where patrons are encouraged to leave their rubbish by their seats, cleaners could spend their time more efficiently collecting neatly placed refuse rather than dealing with unnecessary spills.

Many opposed the justification of intentional mess-making, labeling those who do so as “terrible people” for complicating the cleaners’ duties. Calls for “basic courtesy” and questions about “common decency” were raised, with the consensus leaning towards the importance of not making a mess.

Cinema workers chimed in, noting that they’ve encountered much worse than popcorn spills over the years, highlighting the broader issue of respect and cleanliness in public spaces.
