Is it just me or does anyone else have a problem with the commercials that are on tv? What are these companies thinking? The main ones that irritate me are the Charmin and the new McDonalds ones. In the Charmin one, the little bear is holding a mirror looking at left-over toilet paper on his butt. "You can't pass inspection ....." Well, I'm 56 years old and have never been inspected for toilet paper left overs yet nor have I inspected anyone else. That's just stupidity in advertising!
The McDonalds one has people getting into taxis and telling the driver not to hurry---they're wanting to eat their McDonalds sandwich. Okay, have they ever ridden in a taxi? NASTY!!! Might as well eat in a public bathroom! The last time I had to take a taxi was in Chicago and the driver smelled like he hadn't bathed in months, the taxi wreaked, I coudn't wait to get out.
Can't imagine ever eating in one.
Does anyone else have commercials that irritate them?

We DVR most shows we want to watch and just fast forward through the commercials. You remember the really irritating ones and that is their goal.

Don't like commercials at all. I just ignore them. I've gotten so good at it that I won't realize that whatever I was watching is back on. Lol.

I can't stand those "tax relief" commericals. Where they can settle your debt to the IRS for pennies. What a crock of cow poop.

Hire an accountant......LOL We did and the IRS ended up owing us !!
