"Are You Watching..."

Game of Thrones. World Cup Soccer. Nascar. The baseball game.

Well, me, probably no. However, it seems that lately, there are more people crying foul over the immediacy of information, the fact that they cannot avoid finding out the results of something before they return home to the DVR to see what was being taped while out living or working.

Sometimes, there is a courteous 'spoiler alert', but other times, not so much. The person who texts 'Wow, can't believe the Rangers didn't win', or 'Hey, that Jimmy Johnson stunk up that race," or "they killed off the KING" doesn't get why the other might be upset. To them, I say put yourself in the other person's shoes.

So, if you're excited about the outcome of an event, and want to share, how about prefacing the news with 'Are you watching...?" and if the answer is no, hold your words. You just may save a friendship.

there was a time when you couldn't do that, because we didn't have DVR or VCR or ant recording devices. you watched the show when everyone else did.

I remember those days. We didn't have a VCR and there was a show I liked on choir practice nights, so I would miss it.

I got a VCR before my mom had one.
