It was meant to be our (rare) night together in front of the TV...I worked all morning then cleaned the house top to bottom..I had a shower and joined DH on the sofa for our planned night of crap tv...he's watching some violent looking Western....I'm a bit peeved but try to get into it...then it got more and more violent with an image of a dead since having DC I CANNOT watch anything with children getting hurt....makes me ill...I ask him to turn over and explain (again) that I can't watch this...

He keeps procrastinating....then he puts the menu up reluctantly and leaves the film on i the corner of the I can STILL see the film.

I ask him...again...change it to nything just get it off! And he doen't so I hve left him to his shitty film and "our night" has gone to the shit.
AIBU to go to bed in a huff? Should add...I have worked 10 days straight...literally NONE stop....and was looking forward to a night with DH.

YABU to huff off to bed smile

What time does the film end?

You can get him back by making him watch some crappy drama, although the downside to that is that you'll have to watch it too grin

Or don't watch a film at all?

The night is young yet.

(I'm the same with seeing stuff happen to DC and animals after having DDs)

Oh it's got an hour to go....I hate it. All I can see now is the little baby...I ddn't care what else he wanted...I like comedy and decent drama...not shoot em up and what-not....

I fucking hate most Westerns.

Purely for point and laugh purposes, which one is it?

Pedallleur Sat 24-Sep-11 21:00:57

Couldn't he havee recorded it or if it was a dvd watched it another time?

WomansWeekly Sat 24-Sep-11 21:02:57

why did you keep looking at the screen, why not just laptop or read while he was watching?

you sound a bit daft really.

I like comedy and decent drama...not shoot em up and what-not....

so does he have to like what you like?
what if you wanted to watch a crappy romcom and he hated it and it made him feel sick (they do me) - what would you say if he stomped off like a three year old

Kick the b'stard in the shins and watch the CSI marathon or QI XL or something.

DH constantly pulls this one : "Let's have a movie night, just you and me", which swiftly translates into a trawls through the usual suspects (Ice Road Truckers, Pawn Stars, Deadliest Catch, the one with the storage units in Vegas) then "Oh, there's nothing on, hey, switch off your light and get an early night, babe, you're shattered" (euphemism for "Christ, if you would just start snoring I could ratchet up the moral high ground here and watch Mythbusters already".

All Westerns are shit. Fact. Therefore YANBU.

MumblingRagDoll Sat 24-Sep-11 21:20:36

Oh snigger tell me it aint so....he aint doing me down like that...

snigger Sat 24-Sep-11 21:26:46

Kick him in the nads, doll, and lock all the channels bar Cbeebies and The God Channel. That'll learn him.

My personal favourite is to snuggle up close and then open and eat a packet of crisps really noisely.

What the FFFUUUUUU.......

Noes. The Good, The Bad and The Ugly is a masterpiece

AgentZigzag Sat 24-Sep-11 22:20:06

Well I've never heard of the fucking missing, and can't find it on rotten toms so it must be bollocks <judgement with no right to appeal>

Westerns are just too dusty for my OCD to spend any length of time with.

TrillianAstra Sat 24-Sep-11 22:23:21

Is it this one?

It is on Rotten tomatoes

AgentZigzag Sat 24-Sep-11 22:51:40

Oh yeah Trillian grin

I looked at it but missed the western catagory.

Still looks shit <knows>
