Does your man hog the remote control?

I hardly ever watch tv. I usually sit next to my man doing Cafe Mom while he watches tv, just so I can be with him. But tonight I'm a little irritated because he's watching a movie called Jonah Hex, which I don't freaking like at all, and id rather watch anything else! Does this ever happen to you? Usually I don't care.

  • Haha...yes, typically we watch either what HE wants, or what we both want, but very rarely what I want (if he doesn't like it) That's why I have DVR. If I complain, then I can watch whatever and he doesn't care but I just don't care enough to complain.

  • Yes when he sits down to watch tv he has the remote permanently attached to his hand! I watch with him sometimes but he is usually watching sports and I don't care for that!

  • Yep. And as I was reading other responses, i'm laughing hysterically out loud because it's the same. It's always what he wants or what we both want, never just what I like. That;s why I LOVE my dvr. Also he drives me crazy because he can't be bothered with the channel menu. He will just change the channel, one by one and it takes twice as long! Drives me nuts. Lucky for me he falls asleep half the time so I dive in every opportunity I get to grab that remote!

  • No, we don't watch much TV . Fortunately , I am not a sports widow as he isn't interested in most sport, a little European soccer sometimes . But if he gets his nose into a good book , he might as well be on another planet for all the notice he takes of anything happening on this one .

  • No we do not watch a lot of TV and we like most of the same shows...I generally hold the remote if do watch something:)

  • I think that all men are obsessed with remote controls! They just can't stand it when a commercial comes on. I never know what I'm watching half the time because there is always something different on the TV. Have you thought of hiding it? LOL!
