husbands and tv shows do they get mad when talking to them

When my husband is home from work in the evening and on his days off. If I am asking a question or just talking about dinner, etc. He will give me a dirty look and them pause or even rewind his show. Any other husbands do this and do you get upset over it like I do. I usually just now wait till ads on tv or even read a book

  • If its important I will stand in front of him... if I interrupt at all he doesn't get mad because it must be important. (Our tv is only on for about 3 hours a week).

  • LOL!! I am usually the one who growls at him..hehe... He isnt so much into shows as he is into car manuals/ mechanic books... when he is "learning" ( i say it that way cuz he doesnt HAVE to study for anything he just likes to) he gets a little snippy... but I am the one that throws the huge drama production when he interrupts I dont get to watch tv very when I do... he better be on fire..and not the stop drop and roll fire..i mean engulfed in flames and dying before he interrupts me.. kidding..but you get the point :)

  • LOL my husband does the same thing. But so do I. If I am really into a show and he starts talking to me I will rewind what I missed. he gets so annoyed because somehow he hears what I missed when I ... well missed it. but then when I ask him a question and he is watching something he sighs gets annoyed and pauses the TV as if I interrupted something very important.
    * I don't get annoyed I just simply rewind it and say nothing.

  • oh and I really don't get mad. It kind of makes me laugh. I continue to interrupt his shows anyways. and ignore the fact that he is annoyed.

  • Nope.. If I need to talk to my husband, or say something to him and he's watching something/gaming..etc.. he pauses/turns it off and listens/talks to me.. When we are done, he will then resume what he was doing. He doesn't get mad or irritated by being interrupted either. His view " You're my wife. You , what you want, want you need of me takes precedence over anything else I'm doing"........
