Was this rude?

I wanted to watch something on tv. I dvr'd it. I helped my stepson with his homework. I played with my little one until bed. I cleaned up the dinner mess. And I waited until DH and the kids were doing other things.

I told DH i was watching something in the other room and settled in.

About 15 minutes later dh and the kids come into the room. They are talking loudly and roughhousing.

I pause the tv so I dont miss anything while they play.


Was it rude of me to pause the TV in your opinion?

No it wasn't rude. They were rude for bursting in there while you were watching something, and being loud.

No. Only rude people in this scenario are your dh and the kids.

Hell no! That is precisely the reason why everything that I watch is either a DVR or on demand (like Hulu). I want to be able to pause for anything that disrupts my full attention. Your dh is deflecting because he knows that by pausing your show, he was in fact being rude for interrupting.

Lol! NO. I'd have told them to be quiet or leave the room.

Uh no. We pause the TV so that we can hear each other and don't miss anything on what we are watching.
