According to Jim


Does anyone else hate this show as much as I do?

Actually - you probably haven't heard of this show. You have real TV, with real cable, and real shows. You aren't stuck with network TV.

Well, let me tell you a little bit about "According to Jim." It is a comedy. It is not funny. Not in the slightest. You get the picture.

Why am I bringing this up you ask? Because Dave is driving me crazy. Dave knows all too well how much I hate this show. So what does he do? The following:

Carrie gets the remote control, sits down on the couch, turns on the TV, and begins breast feeding Brig. Once I start this ritual, I'm trapped for the next 15 minutes or so.
Dave enters the room, sits next to Carrie, and engages in small talk for 30 seconds or so.
On the sly Dave grabs the remote and starts non-chalantly flipping through our 5 channels. What to watch, what to watch?
Dave turns the TV to a station playing commercials. I'm not paying attention, after all I'm focused on keeping our son ALIVE. I assume Dave has returned to the station I initially selected.
Dave yawns, stretches, and then leaves the room.
Then what you ask?
Do you see where this is going?
Then..."According to Jim" comes on.
I start to look for the remote control.
My eyes roam desperately for the remote control.
WHERE IS THE REMOTE CONTROL!
Then I realize what has happened. Dave has yet again intentionally turned on "According to Jim," snuck out of the room, house, and my life, WITH the remote control.

I'm trapped, with Jim.

I HATE JIM.

Dave does this to me at least twice a week. He thinks it is the funniest thing in the world.

Retaliation is a must. Suggestions?

Shake your shoes out on his side of the best. Trust me, works like a charm.

I don't know about retaliation! But I hate According to Jim as well. Seriously, none of them are funny!

FYI: I've added you to my "Entertainment" folder under My Favorites...next to the link to my Netflix Queue.

I'm just excited to know that somebody else in the world doesn't have cable or dish like us either. We're just too cheep, plus we don't watch that much TV to begin with. I'm glad we're not alone out there in the world!!!

I find that show equally annoying. But I have to say, Davie is pretty funny.

I bought a remote control watch so when I want to change the channel... anywhere I'm the man:) Look into it. The watch was like 50 bucks but is priceless.

He'll get his just reward when Brig's first sassy words are "I know dad but according to Jim..."

You could always fix some Mexican food and HIDE all of the hot sauce on a Sunday when he shouldn't go to the store for backup????

Nothing better than a double comment and then another comment acknowledging the stupidity of the double comment!!!

Jim is far better than Judy. Judge Judy that is. I was stuck with Judy one too many a times b/c of the whole breastfeeding no dish network issue. I think I was always a bit fiesty after watching Judy.

dave is so sneaky. sly like a fox. you should tell him to stop wasting his time and attention tormenting you and get working on my christmas present.
