I'd like to nominate the family in front of us at the circus this weekend. They were just fine until the very end, and then, during the big finale, they ALL got up and headed out. I hadn't realized how many of them there were until at least 10, possibly as many as 14 people stood up simultaneously in front of us, and started putting on their coats and shuffling towards the door. There were others, of course, but this group was talking together and herding children as a group, which is why I assume they were one (extended) family. Look, people, I know the parking lot is going to be packed, but you chose to attend a live performance. It seems to me that applauding the performers is a really big part of that.
