I am not a big channel surfer, I like to find a show and leave it there. Maybe it comes from the days when I was the remote and had to stand there for half an hour switching through six t.v. stations over and over again, but it really bothers me when people sit there flipping around between t.v. stations. What’s the point?! You sit on one station just long enough to get involved in a show and then BOOM you’re moving on to another station. Aaaarrrrgggghhh!!! Just find something and leave it be. Whenever I’m at someones house who does that, I just want to butter their remote while their in the bathroom so they stop flipping. That’s why at my house I’m the master of the remote. Of course we still watch what my wife wants to watch, but I get to be the one that puts it on that station and leave it.
Come to think of it, that’s not much different from when I was a kid and was the remote control; I’m still surfing for others. Oh well, at least I don’t have to stand there and be the rabbit ears while everybody else watches some fuzzy UHF station. Bathroom break took on a whole different meaning then.
