Anyone else?

Have a husband who walks into the room, forty-five minutes into a one hour television program and says,

"So. What did I miss?"






Anyone?

OMFG yes and it is SO annoying!

Or he'll start watching with me for 10 minutes, wander off for 30 minutes, then come back and ask what's going on.

If it was that important to you, you'd pay attention!

I am not your surrogate eyes and ears!

And from the heavens I hear.... "Jason. For the love. Of. God."

My husband falls asleep 5 minutes in, wakes up when its over and tries to act like he knows exactly what happened. ANNOYING!

Rachel said...

Yes! I guess it's a guy thing.

Here's what he does that's more annoying:

We'll be channel-surfing, hit a show, and he'll ask me, "what's going on?" I always say, "I HAVE BEEN WATCHING THIS THE SAME AMOUNT OF TIME AS YOU!"

Grr...

sometimes I'm a fool and start to explain, only to realize in the 2.2 seconds since he's asked, he's fallen asleep.

Shamefully, I have done this. Thank heavens for DVR.

Not a usband, but my dad. They always have to ask during the good part and then can't understand why you get upset at them.

Angie said...

No, but mine simply cannot carry on a conversation if there's a commercial going on. I always get the "please mute the TV" while we're discussing whether or not we need pull-ups from the Kroger. :)

Kimberly said...

Nah. But Neil walks in and asks semi-scathing, "WHAT are you WATCHING?"

At least Jason is funny, eh?

*raising hand* I worship the TiVo god.

La Petite Redhead said...

No, but I've got a teenage son that does that and it drives me nutty!

It must be a guy thing. : )

marci said...

Actually, that sounds more like something I'd do. Or if it's been recorded, I ask to watch form the beginning...

it's a good thing he's awesome!

Angie said...

Oh my GOD, that sounds exactly like my husband. It is the most annoying thing ever. It must be a guy thing. Aren't they lovable? Ha.

kristi said...

Yes, yes, yes! And as I am trying to explain to him what has happened, I miss what is currently going on! Thank God for the DVR.

Jana said...

My husband does the "What did they just say?" Every five minutes... so while I'm explaining what was just said on the TV I'm missing the next part! It is ANNOYING!

My husband does that every Tuesday night when he comes home from class after 3/4 of Biggest Loser is over and wants a play by play.

Dear.God.

raino said...

nope. but i do have a husband that walks into the room, 45 minutes into a show and changes the channel.

Sabrina said...

Mine walks in 55 minutes into the show and asks what happened.

Ron said...

Actually I do it, but I guess that means that Mike has a husband that does it.

Smilf said...

OMG yes. Completely. My mother does the same thing and I always warn hubby before a show..."Look. You are telling me that you don't want to watch this with me - don't come in here half way through and ask a million questions while I'm trying to watch!!" They do it anyway. Sigh.
