This is very minor for a pitting, but man I cannot wait until my household goods arive. Of course I’ve only been back in the US for 2 days, so I’m living in a motel room with the wife and cats. (we’re going house hunting later)
But her constant channel flipping drives me insane. Thats why we have 2 TVs. Early in our marriage I couldn’t take the constant changing of channels. Granted we don’t actually like to watch the same things, but man, she flips channels like crazy. In our first home when we had one TV I once took the batteries out the remote to stop her. It was the only way I could see an entire episode of anything.
we were watching the news waiting for election results yesterday. They say “we’ll be back with results from these states after this message”. She flips the channel. By the time she finshes cycling through channels I miss what the news guy was going to say. I had to take the remote.
I understand why she does it. She doesn’t like this or that comeercial, she can’t stand this or that actor, etc. But man, it makes me crazy. I know, its minor. But I’m trying to watch the news this morning and she flipped the channels so much I gave up. I’ll just buy a stinkin’ paper.
I’ll add one more minor pitting. I haven’t seen this for years having been in a quiet Bavarian village for the past few years. A car passed me yesterday while I was walking to the a nearby convenience store. I could hear the stereo on it before I could see the vehicle and after it had passed me and was almost out of sight. I sure haven’t missed people that blare their car stereos like the world cares what they listen to. The bass alone was deafening. If I had my way people that do that would be prohibited from owning radios and any other music playing equipment in their cars for a year. Maybe I’m just getting cranky in my old age.
