and restaurants and bars

and doctor's office sitting areas and ER waiting rooms...seems like you can't escape the idiot box no matter where you go. I've started complaining about it to business owners or just boycotting businesses that have a tv constantly blaring. Sometimes, I just walk over to the tv and turn it off...usually, no one says anything. If I'm at a restaurant and the owner gets mad, I tell them that I can't enjoy my meal with a tv blaring and if they insist on keeping it on, I just leave without ordering. If enough people complain, maybe private business owners will remove the obnoxious things.
