    I don't know why, but we guys LOVE the remote control. I'll sometimes find myself surfing up and down through 70 channels, thinking to myself, "This is really stupid." But...I can't stop.

    If you want the flip side, I tend to hog the remote....my husband hates it!

    Hubby always watches his shows on the t.v. in the living room while he and the doggie lie on the sofa together....most of the time snoozing.

    I watch t.v. in our bedroom if it's a show I like, but he doesn't. When the kids lived at home with us, they each had their own t.v. in their own bedroom, so never had to fight for the remote from the kids either.

    It is true.
    I want the remote and I want to see what else is on during the commercial and I want to turn the volume up or down as I see fit.
    You just don't understand and I can't explain it.

    Just for the record MEN: Just because I get up to get a Coke or do something to the laundry during the commercial DOES NOT mean I relenquish rights on the show I'm watching...and you can't sneak and change because it's so blaring loud, I'll know

    "....most of the time snoozing... " :chuckle


    and what blew me away was, if i change the channel, mine would say he was watching the tv, but i could feel the "house shaking" from the loud snoring. :chuckle

    ROFLMAO!!!

    First of all, I *******' hate the change-the-channel-during-commercial thing. My mom uses NOT changing the channel during commercial as torture--er--'behavior modification' for my dad..lol!

    Second, does your dh do the thing where he's ASLEEP in front of the tv, and you go to change the channel, and he wakes up and says indignantly "hey!! I WAS WATCHING THAT!!"
