More Commercials  
Two more commercials that irritate the hell out of me:

First, that, I believe, Kia commercial with the dad strapping the daughter into his mini van and she's talking, and talking and talking and won't shut the fuck up. It seriously grates on my fucking nerves. I have the overwhelming desire to slap the hell out of that girl every time the commercial comes on.

Second, those tvboss.org commercials where some retarded parent is talking to a character from a TV show and telling them that they need block them because they are too graphic for the kids. Okay, A-the characters they're talking to would be on shows that would air WAY after their kids should be in bed. B-Maybe I don't understand, but can't you put a parental lock on the show instead of blocking it all together? Why stop watching a show you like so you can half-ass parent? I guess I should be happy that they're not calling for the shows to be taken off the air because they can't parent their own children.

That first one is a Volvo commercial. I HATE that one. SHUT UP!! He puts a smug little smile on his face while she's talking like it's so adorable that she's not speaking in complete sentances in that sing-song little girl voice and hardly stopping to breathe: I'd be shooting myself in the head.

I want to shoot myself in the head every time it comes on. I wonder if they realize how much this makes me want to NOT buy their product.

1.) What the hell is that girl even talking about? She goes off about an insect, a house, and something else or other. I was watching TV with my roommates one night and they both said they were like that as kids and their families fought over who wasn't going to ride with them because the incessant talking was beyond irritating.

2.) I'm glad that they're showing people being responsible for their own kids instead of trying to ruin everybody's TV fun by trying to force cancellation, but I also don't think that the parent should have to be relegated to watching only Spongebob or whatever crappy kids' shows are on nowadays when The Sopranos and whatnot come on at like 10PM when kids should be in bed. I mean, I know we didn't have set bedtimes, but I was out by 8PM when I was a kid.

1-I don't know, I bet looked for the most talkative kid they could find and when they found one that wouldn't shut the fuck up, they casted her.

2-Agreed. It doesn't make a lot of logical sense. But no one said these people were logical.

God I fucking HATE that car commercial. My parents claim I used to be that way, and that it's cute. I try to grab the TV remote and mute it every time it comes on, but I think my mother likes tormenting me because she always holds the remote out of my reach and gives me this big shit-eating grin like I should love the commercial. No, dammit. I'm mortified by the very idea that I used to be like that, and IT'S NOT CUTE. AT ALL. *grumble*
