Why is the volume on commercials twice as loud as the programs? I know – I know – it’s to get our attention.

But does it ever work when commercial time also is:

  • Go to the kitchen and refill your drink [or grab a snack] time.
  • Run to the bathroom and take care of business time.
  • Make that quick phone call time.
  • Actually talk to the other person in the room time.
  • Flip to the onscreen TV Guide to see what’s coming on next time.
  • Put the TV on MUTE so you can read or think your own thoughts for two minutes time.

So, what do you do during commercials? Tell me.

  1. Yes, me, too! MUTE MUTE MUTE, I’d rather do anything rather than listen to those dumb ads that wouldn’t convince me to try anything I hadn’t already planned to try. Of course, I’m wearing out my mute button, but it’s better than the alternative!
