Real life too boring for ya?

Don’t you hate it when people go on about some TV show you never watched.

But it’s far worse when they neglect to tell you the fact that it’s a TV show they’re talking about.

I once overheard a conversation in a takeaway where two people were talking about some murder and how nobody knew where the body had been buried.

I thought it was a very strange conversation to be having in such a matter of fact manner, then it clicked, it’s not real, it’s TV.

Just witnessed an entire discussion on a work talk group about some person who died. Not wishing to sound disrespectful I politely enquired as to who it was who had died and it turns out nobody had, it was a fucking TV show.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of those guys who doesn’t own a TV. I own a TV, and I watch it a lot. But I don’t assume everyone watches the same shows I do and launch into conversations about them without at least warning people.

Also, I don’t confuse real life with TV, oh, except for the Simpsons of course. :-)
