Marriage 401, Lecture 298: Should be called the Rewindies
SH: That's a Corvair!
He grabs the remote.
Me: Do not rewind the movie! Stop!
SH: It is! It is a Corvair!
He rewinds again.
Me: Stop rewinding the movie to look at a car!
SH But it's cool!
Me: No it's not.
SH: It's COOL! Why is there a Corvair? You never see Corvairs in the movies!
Me: Could we watch the movie, please?
We also have to rewind when SH has missed dialogue, even if I tell him, "She said, 'X.' Don't rewind!" He never believes me, even though I am almost always right and when I'm not, it doesn't matter.
He misses dialogue because he is talking or eating or doing something that is NOT MY FAULT, yet I am the one who is punished for it.
