Why does there have to be a TV wherever you go?Â There’s a nice spa down the street from our house, where we sometimes go for a massage.Â They have a stupid TV in the changing room, set to a horrid show, talking about some guy who murdered his children.Â Not the news, either, some sensationalist channel.Â So you come out after having a wonderful massage, and you’re confronted with that crap.Â They also have a changing room for after you work out, and I can understand having a TV there, since some people like to watch the news in the morning, and they go to the gym in the morning.Â But they have a separate changing room for folks who are there for a massage or whatever, and I don’t think that room should have a TV.
And why are there flat screens in more and more restaurants nowadays?Â I get so tired of going out for a meal, only to see a TV on the wall.Â Grr.Â Why can’t we just watch TV at home, and not every dang place we go?Â They’ve added a big screen TV at California Pizza Kitchen, and I find it annoying as hell.
The worst though, for me, was the grocery store.Â Albertsons installed TV monitors at the end of each check out lane, and while you’re waiting in line, you get to watch commercials.Â Nice, huh?Â Albertsons has turned back into Lucky now…I don’t think they kept the TVs, but I’m not sure…
How about you?Â Are there any places that you see a TV, and you wish it weren’t there?Â Or do you love having a TV to watch every time you turn around?
UPDATED TO ADD: Just got back from shopping at Lucky, and they don’t have the TV with commercials at the end of the aisles, but instead they had a few TVs throughout the store with stupid ‘how to’ videos, like how to cook chicken, or how to apply eye liner.Â Ugh.
