Does your better half flip channels. I mean, my husband flips like there is a race going on and he wants to win. He races through the channels so fast you can't even tell what is on the stations he's flipping through. He always asks if he can flip and it's usually when there is nothing really interesting on, but we can never see if there is anything on because he flips so much. Anyone else have someone who is flip crazy?

Living with my parents growing up, I could get "sea sick" when watching TV with my dad. I would have to loook away while he was channel surfing because it made me dizzy. I don't know how he ever knew what was on a certain channel because he never seemed to stop to look.

It's a wonder you didn't develop ADHD since you never saw one program in its entirety. My sister blames her husband's channel flipping on her son's ADHD. :)

No, but I can't stand him when he changes the channel as I am watching the T.V.

That would be cause for a very loud "discussion" if my husband did that.

This made me laugh. I used to be that person. I was about eight when I started the channel surfing games. I felt like I needed to see everything even though it was only half a second. I remember my mom making a comment like yours about not being able to really see what's going on, lol.

My husband doesnt do that, but my dad does. Whenever we are visiting there he is flipping around the channels like crazy. I dont know if he ever watches any program all the way through. My mother seems to have inherited this disease,because she seems to be flipping too. She says that she is skipping thru the commercials. i dont buy it.

My husband does not do that but I used to have a best friend who did. You would just get interested in something and then bam she would change the channel than as soon as you got interested in that one bam she would change it again. I don't think she ever watched an entire show it drove me nuts!
