and they are so into watching what is on tv that they don't answer? It really only bothers me when I know they've seen the show ten million times and they are ignoring me for no good reason.

Hello laurla98, Yes it bothers me when I try to ask someone something and they don't answer when their in front of the tv. I rarely ask for something and I understand that sometimes they really are so in the show their watching. So when I do ask I usually time it on the commercial breaks. :-)

It bothers when I am ignored while I am asking for something. But this mood won't last long, just a little while. I will still do it by myself without bothering them to help me.

lol yeah I'm the same way when it comes to getting something done. But when I'm asking what someone wants to eat for the ten millionth time....drives me crazy. lol Have a good day!

You must know my husband! He could be watching the weather channel (and does) and be in total oblivion when I talk to him. I understand if he is watching sports or is deeply into a show but weather? Or something he saw 100 times before? I mean, hello, I am real. That is TV. lol. I do get annoyed and then I repeat myself louder and he gets mad because he thinks I am yelling at him and I never do get an answer. Now I say his name straight up and wait for a response and I ask if what is he watching is important and if he says no, I say I have to ask you something or tell you something. But spontaneous talk is nearly impossible. Ahh well, usually what I say isn't too important anyway...

lol I started laughing as soon as I read the first line. I can't imagine the weather channel being that interesting. IN fact, I know its not because I check it regularly. lol I would probably swat my husband on the head if he did that to me.

I went through that the entire time I lived with my dad, even beginning when I was a child. He would watch the same movies over and over later at night when he got home, and I'd have to shout to get him to answer. And believe me, I didn't dare shout too many times. : ) If I go to my parent's house on Saturday night, I'll usually find him watching another action movie he's see a million times, and he will completely ignore me. He says he just can't hear me with the TV on. I know his hearing isn't great, but c'mon... How many time can a person watch Road House or Shawshank Redemption on cable?
