    I prefer to hide it most of the time so the TV can stay off longer.

    When it’s on, I don’t care who has the remote as long as nobody is fast-forwarding or switching the channels in the middle of a program that I’m trying to watch. This rarely happens, since I don’t watch much TV.

  2. depends who i’m watching it with… if its a buddy of mine or a girlfriend i prefer to hold onto it… if its with my parents who cant handle something like south park, then i’ll gladly give it up and snooze out to whatever they’re watching.

    The remote is usually out of reach of both children and husband. If at my inlaws, I wait patiently until they hand me the remote (taking a rare break from tv gazing), turn it to something I like and they don’t, and hold on for dear life.

    They do nothing but watch tv all day, and I’ve noticed that when I have control of the remote, they actually do something other than stare at the screen (interact with each other, play with the grandkids, etc). I get a break from reality tv (blech!), and I’d like to feel I’m helping them out. And it totally feeds into my remote control control impulse! : )

    Is this a trick question?

    I give it up just because I can never pry it from either my kids or my husband!

    For the most part I don’t care who “holds” the remote although I hate channel flipping during commercials because what we were watching tends to get “forgotten” about.

    BUT…if Paul is in “nap mode” then yes, I want the remote by me so as soon as he falls asleep, I can turn the TV off. I hate it when he’s “resting his eyes” with the remote in his hand and I try and take it away, he tells me he’s not sleeping!!!

    Not an option if Jason is watching TV. Even if we keep the channel the same he has to have it in his control. Maybe it makes him feel like an all too powerful MAN. Who knows!!

    Toby would not admit this, but he has to have it in his hand. I just like it near me so I can change channels when I want!
