I can’t take it anymore! I feel like I live inside a sports stadium!
FI watches a lot of sports, and if he’s not watching them he will play them on his xbox. So all I hear, all the time, is sports commentators, cheering crowds, loud buzzers, and the click-click-click of his controller.
Literally, he will watch a hockey game, and then go on his xbox and play NHL 13, and will play the exact same game as he just watched, with the same teams and players and everything. He does the same with NFL, and some racing games.
Then he watches the post-game commentary, AND the highlights of the game he JUST WATCHED and then he watches TSN sports highlights, at the end of the day and then first thing in the morning (I watch the news, he watches sports news). For this reason, I don’t get out of bed until he is about to leave for work. I cannot stand a bunch of men analyzing the crap about how so and so did this or that in the last period causing some penalty and why is so and so out for so many games for some injury, and how this or that team didn’t take advantage of the power play, blablablaaaa!
I can’t realistically be out of the house every time he does this, becaue I would never be home. *I’m* the homebody in this relationship, after all. I CAN put my own stuff on when I’m tinkering on the computer, but sometimes I just don’t feel like having noise all the damn time, silence can be really really nice! Plus, most of the time I tinker around the home, cooking, cleaning, crafting, reading, organizing, decorating, so I can’t have headphone cords all over me all the time. I don’t WANT constant noise inside my ears, anyway.
I bought him some really great headphones with a long cord, but he hates it. No matter where I go in the house, I can hear the sports. This morning I woke up to him playing NHL 13.
I wake up hearing sports, I go to bed hearing sports, sometimes I eat dinner hearing sports, often I make dinner hearing sports.
Oh, and if we go out with his friends? Sports are usually on the tv where ever you go, and you guessed it – they talk about sports.
What’s a girl to do? I’m about to lose it. I was a total cuntbag this morning because hearing that just put me in an instantly foul mood.
Sometimes I want to download every single episode of Teen Mom and just play it constantly, to give him a taste of his own medicine. Imagine having to hear that chatter ALL THE TIME?!
Hellllllllllpppppp! He does NOT get how irritating it is. He cannot even imagine it, wrap his head around it, because he loves it so much. I am about to snap.
