Is it annoying to you when....

You're watching a show or a movie you've never seen before and people won't stop talking? Sorry it drives absolutely bonkers when people do this. It just makes me want to turn the volume up to max.

  • I'm sick of it, too! During a show, a movie, and during songs. If I'm watching tv in the living room my husband has a bad habit of coming in to see what I'm watching and blocks the view! My youngest daughter has the bad habit of telling me the end of a show or movie just when I sit down to watch it!
    What also drives me crazy is when I am in the middle of typing and someone begins talking to me....I ask them to hold on a minute and they keep talking or interrupting before I'm finished. I finally snap if I lose my train of thought and tell them to leave me the heck alone (all my kids are age 16 years and older so they understand). DH will say, "It's just CafeMom" as if it's a bad thing.
    Jeez, am I not allowed a life?

  • Yes it is so annoying. Even if I have seen it before I don't want people talking while I am trying to watch. And I don't like it when they say the dialogue with the actors either. OK they know the dialogue, but I want to hear the actors not other people saying it.

  • OH MY GOODNESS ! I have been fussing at the kids about this all evening !!!!! I was in my exercise room exercising while watching Dr. G and they come in and YAK YAK YAK ! Then everyone wanted to watch Hoarders and they sit down and YAK YAK YAK, I feel like I'm in a hen house with a bunch of chickens squawking !!!!!

    Usually it's the husband though, he will come in and start asking questions about the show I'm watching and then gets mad because I won't tell him and I can't tell him because I don't know, I can't hear it because he's talking !
