One of the most sacred of all bovines close to the hearts of the purple beret-wearing theatuh crowd is the belief that if a theatre critic leaves a show before the end, they should not write a review of it.
First, on the logic of continuing to consume something when what’s on offer isn’t any good.
The idea that you should continue to watch a crap show because it might get better is like asking a restaurant patron to keep eating because, yes, the soup sucks, but really we’re just about to knock your socks off with the primi! Or maybe you should keep buying AMC Gremlins because, really, the engineers are just about to nail this thing!
Let’s get real here, folks. Apply this nonsensical principle to any – ANY – other facet of your life, and see how it holds up. Do you continue to shop at a store with horrible service because it might get better? Do you continue to read through a botched resume because it might get better? Do you continue to use Comcast because it might bet better?
No. You don’t. Why?
Because life is short.
