YELLING AT THE TV - a cranky re-run
YELLING AT THE TV (From December 2011)
I know it's a PC, Blogger won't let me use pictures from my own files...this is the best I could do.
Am I the only one that yells at the TV? Mrs. Cranky thinks that I am. I only recently started yelling at the TV. I think yelling is a product of age.
I watch a TV quiz show contestant and I have to yell.
“What bird can swim, but not fly?”
“Gee Regis let me think. An eagle can fly, and some dive to catch fish, but I don’t think they can swim. Hmmm a seagull is around water; I don’t think a seal is even a bird. Er ah…”
“PENGUIN YOU FUCKING IDIOT IT’S A FUCKING PENGUIN!! THESE ARE THE EASY ONES YOU DIPSHIT!!”
Mrs. Cranky downstairs washing dishes gets panicky, “WHAT? WHY ARE YOU YELLING?”
“THIS NUMBNUTS IS TAKING FOREVER TO ANSWER AN EASY QUESTION.”
Mrs. Cranky, out of breath from running up the stairs counters, “It's TV! I T I S A T V S H O W. Why are you yelling?”
I don’t know why I yell, I never used to yell. When you get older you have no patience. I feel like I am losing two and a half minutes of my life that I will never get back waiting for some freaking idiot to say “penguin.” So I yell.
I yell at movies on TV, “DON’T GO IN THE BASEMENT YOU IDIOT. WHEN YOU HEAR HEAVY BREATING, GO THE OTHER WAY!!
I especially yell at commercials, “FUCK YOU BITCH; HE PAID FOR THE YOGURT LET HIM EAT IT!!”
I don’t yell at home. I don’t yell in stores. I don’t yell in the car (maybe a little), I don’t yell at the radio, and I don’t yell at what I read.
What is it about getting older that makes me yell at the TV?
