    Sorry; I gotta blow off some steam.

    First, let me start by saying that I love my fiancee. And I like most of her friends well enough.

    But this is getting old. One of her friends is staying at our place for a couple weeks until she can find a place to live (her lease ran out as she was job hunting in a couple different cities, and she got the job here in Rock Hill). I didn't really mind when I learned this. Now... I'm almost ready to drown her.

    She's crazy, makes everyone feel awkward. Not to mention the stuff she watches on tv. A lot of ABC Family (which I react violently to; almost as bad a country music), ABC shows... basically anything that is a soap opera that isn't one of the 'big ones'.

    So, I get home from a long, hot, bad day at work, and all I have to look forward to is soap operas that center on high school. I get home and immediately want to leave again.

    I don't have a motorcycle that I can go ride until I feel better (can't afford one yet), and I can't afford enough range time to vent enough. And, because I have split days off, I can't drink enough to not care about what's on tv (because I almost always have to work the next day).



    Sorry. I hope I haven't offended anyone, and I hope that nobody hates me now. Just had to let that out before I exploded and said something unintentionally hurtful to my fiancee.

    If that's a big issue now you may want to just go ahead and RUN FOREST RUN!

    Your house, generous enough to provide free housing to a friend of the fiancee, such "guests" rank low on control of the tv.

    My fiancee and myself get on just fine, the two of us. There aren't any issues there.

    I am, unfortunately, too nice a person to come home, and take over the tv in the middle of a show they're watching.

    ...I really need to fix that.

    She knows I hate it, and quite often she'll try to give me control, but, she does it in that way that women have that make you feel guilty for doing it.

    What if the TV somehow started mysteriously skipping the soap opera channels?

    Or, what if the remote was lost forever, and the tube was stuck on ESPN?

    I have a friend that had his TV mysteriously changing channels in the middle of his shows. Turns out that there was "someone" outside with a matching remote that just wanted to screw with him. You just need a clear shot through a window to the TV and it works great.

    We don't have cable or satellite- everything is through my XBox, Netflix or HULU.

    Wired or wireless? If it's wireless the internet could cut out, and then you could "fix it" and watch your shows.

    Sounds like an early recipe for a failed marriage. Fiancee needs to put you FIRST! I agree with the RFR (run Forrest Run) suggestion. You'll be miserable wondering why you married a woman who prioritzes making her friend happy...
