#JustJoJan Day 12 – Aggravation at it’s finest and me at my worst

My hubby and kids know the best way to aggravate me is to talk during a movie or TV show.  You’d think they’d stop doing it because they know, but no.  Thank god we have a pause button now so that no matter what we’re watching, I can pause it and give them that blank stare that means shut the hell up.

Just the other night, we were watching a show and the hubby thought one of the guys looked weird so he starting talking to my son and before you know it, they’re having a full blown conversation about this guys eyes or something.  I finally paused the show and said, “By all means, let’s have a conversation.”  That doesn’t mean to keep talking, but being male, they both took it as permission and kept right on going.  I pretty much lost my shit.  It wasn’t cute.

I talk during movies and shows, but there is honestly a right way to do it.  You talk when music is playing or when the scenes change.  There are always little bits of time when not much is going on.  But please, please, please don’t do it right when the characters launch into a conversation that reveals plot details!  I don’t understand it and I’m sure it will always aggravate me.

I have learned to breathe, though.  I’ve learned that it’s okay to hit the pause button and patiently wait.  I’m sure that if you asked the hubby he would say that I never just patiently wait, but I do try.  What I can’t understand is why they continue to do it when they know it bugs the crap out of me!

I know, I know… life is too short and is that TV show or movie really that important?  Well, no, but I’m a storyteller at heart and I can’t have an incomplete story.  I just can’t!

Just Jot It January is hosted by Linda G. Hill. Today’s word, aggravate, was suggested to us by Fandango at This, That, and the Other.
