Rather than insist on having it on in the lounge whilst he goes and does other stuff?

He's not recording it or anything either hmm

I would just change it over, although I do put it on so it can be heard throughout the house and get on with other things, much to the annoyance of my family.

There's nowt worse than a TV controller controller. Is he usually a twat?

No, he's normally okay (if a bit neurotic).

DH often has the television on in the morning with some financial show on (cable). He then wafts off and leaves the cacophony it on. I just switch it off, if he's not actually there. He knows where the zapper is, if he wants to turn it on.

As we speak, he is snoozing on the sofa, while "watching" the Giro. If it wasn't for Mumsnet, I'd be bored shitless!

"I was watching that."

"really? If you can tell me what just happened in the last 5 minutes, you can have the remote back"

I hate it when people claim the telly.

Unless it's me. grin

My husband does this. He puts on BBC news 24 and then sits on the sofa reading....BBC news on the iPad confused. Such a weirdo.
