    Anyone else get pissed off from shit like TV commercials, modern music, certain phrases, etc.? I know most of it has to do with getting older (get off my lawn!), but I just don't have much patience for stupid shit these days.

    A good example is all the fucking Progressive Auto Insurance commercials I'm forced to endure when I want to watch TV. I'm at the point where I have to mute them as soon as they come on. I especially hate the talking box that sings in a studio while some millenial faggot waves his hand up and down. I'm no longer annoyed, now I get angry. I could give several more examples too.

    Am I just getting old? Anyone else feel like this?

    I hate the Liberty car insurance commercials.

    They are not really standing in battery park in front of the Statue of Liberty. Do they think they are fooling anyone?

    The older you get the harder it becomes to find joy in anything.

    I would say the older you get the more you find joy in things like going to bed. :)

    Fucking hate commercials, cant stand their nonstop bullshit.

    But watching commercials is a new phenomenon.

    People used to get some food or take a piss during the commercials.

    But these marketing geniuses have taken advertising to a whole other level.

    Now people actually make a point to sit and watch these ads, then discuss which commercials they saw and which ones they liked and WGAF.

    I have young children still in the house and your bang on, going to sleep is the highlight of most of my days. I roll a big blunt every evening, then take my dog for a walk and smoke it, come home, have a wank, then straight to sleep.

    Exactly!

    Loosing loved ones has taught me to ignore the meaningless shit out there, and really enjoy/appreciate the important stuff...

    I cant stand tv commercials. I always turn off the volume or switch channels, or I just record the program and speed thru the commercials. Tv commercials these days are so obnoxious.

    It seems like every commercial is for erectile dysfunction or diabetes. Or those horrible Flo from Progressive ads. Ugh

    Those Geico commercials are funny. The one with Salt n Peppa and that one in the break room where the 80#s band Europe starts playing The Final Countdown

    Hulu commercials for Empire are the worst.
