Torturous T.V.

Hubby turns on the tv one minute after he walks in the door from a long day at work.
He promptly takes up his trusty remote and hits the guide button.
The little window pops up showing the lines of how much has loaded so far.
There are no little lines, it is not loading!
He (not talking to me) says...IT"S NOT LOADING! kinda whiny.
Two seconds later..he repeats this and adds..WHY isn't it loading?
He gets frustrated and manually punches in the number to his favorite channel.
A few minutes later he does this all again.
Repeat, repeat and repeat.

I'm getting frustrated at the interruption of the show we are watching.
Why do you keep doing that? It isn't working so stop messing with it!
BUT WHY isn't working?
I don't know, it just isn't!
BUT I have to know why!
On and on we go...repeating the whole chorus again.
I start to walk away and I hear him yell at the tv.

WORK DANG IT!!! (edited for the pure at heart)

The grumbling, yelling, whining and begging continued for at least an hour.
He says..I'm never going to get to sleep with this on my mind.
He continues to keep trying..

Suddenly I hear him shout..IT"S WORKING!!!
I bust up laughing.
He says..It bowed to my persistence!

Yeah, uhha...yeah right! The tv heard all that complaining and decided it had tormented you long enough!

We have had so many storms it knocks our satellite out and I get so frustrated. As soon as our contract is up we will go back to cable. We are locked in for another year. You and hubby seem to get along so good. I think it is your sense of humor.
