Okay. I don’t know when this started…Perhaps it’s been going on for a long while & I’m particularly unobservant. Perhaps it’s just started. One thing there’s no “perhaps” about, however, is that it annoys the living fuck out of me & many people I know. What is it?
“It” is the fact that all commercials seem to run at the same time now. You can no longer flip the channels. Let’s say I’m watching The History Channel & it breaks for commercials. I need constant stimulus so I flip to The Learning Channel. Commercials. So I flip to NBC. Commercials. What in holy hell is going on? I really don’t think it was always like this.
“So listen to the radio instead and stop bitching”, says you. I would, except guess what the fuck happens? The SAME THING. My sister & I have a 10 - 15 minute drive to college in the mornings. We get going anywhere from 9 to 10:45 AM. On the Fridays I come home with her, we leave between 1 & 1:30 PM. No matter the time, it’s the same goddamn thing; we’re lucky if we hear a song & a half from parking lot to driveway or vice versa. That’s whilst flipping amongst three stations.
This seems counterproductive for the TV/radio stations, as it only makes me want to pull an Elvis & shoot out my entertainment appliances. So, I put it to you; am I imagining this phenomenon, or is my wrath justified? :mad:
