What Do You When Commercials Come On

United States
May 28, 2018 3:35pm CST
I was just wondering what you do when commercials come on. Do you sit still and watch or do you get up and do something else. Sometimes I go to the fridge. Or put a load of clothes on in the washer. So what do you do. I rarely watch commercials.

Like you I do other things while the commercials are on. Depending on if I'm watching live television or not I may pause something or fast forward.

@popciclecold That is an interesting question. I used to get commercials when I watched things but now with Netflix no commercials and am so happy. I guess I used to watch them waiting for the program to come on or come back on.

@ConVolines Are you kidding me? But maybe that is Netflix outside of Israel. He is not a fan of Israel and we do not like him either.

I don't want commercials when I see that they are the same. I play on my phone while commercials or do something. I only watch when it's a new commercial.

I stay put and watch the commercials. If you need to do something while the commercials are on, you probably need to stop watching tv altogether during that time and go do what you need to do instead.

Usually I don't watch commercials and do something else when they come on. I find it's usually a good time for a bathroom break

When possible, we fast forward through them. If not, I'll do a bit of something, laundry or such.
