Who's the Remote Master in your house?

I'm sure there is one in every household.
My husband is ours and he is not very good at his job. Not his fault I spose that his veiwing choices generally suck.

But there is only so much Simpsons, South Park and sport a person can watch.

My boyfriend and I have equal control over the remote - we only watch what would appeal to both of us.

My mom's boyfriend.


Which is why I almost always go in my room to watch tv. All he likes is reality tv and Wild On E!. He has one redeeming quality in that he likes Seinfeld.

Me - my wife get confused by the universal remote. She has her own remote - it is shaped like an elbow that nudges me.

It's just Dad and me. When we watch TV in the living room together, it depends who gets the remote. If one of us is on the computer and the other is on the loveseat, the person on the loveseat gets the remote since they face the TV directly. If we are both on the loveseat, I give Dad the remote. However, if we are both on the loveseat, and he's really tired and keeps falling asleep, then I handle the remote. If Dad is on the loveseat, and I am on the computer, he makes sure to give me the remote before he goes to bed. If he forgets, I always crack a joke to him about it, and he says something smartass back.

Since it became just the two of us, Dad and I have become quite routine. I like it though.

hahahahahaha Angela..U2? thsi topic heading made me


and I haven't had much call to use the smilie lately
I was just thinking the other day "remote nazi" and then thought that isn't very PC.( I think I got the idea from Seinfeld's "soup nazi")
If anything will cause us to get a divorce, it will be that goddamned infernal remote control. He has complete and utter control of it and I don't like his choices.
Fortunately I like my room and listening to the radio.

oh dear...u just made me laugh...thanks.
