Volume Control

Am I the only one who gets bent out of shape over the volume of commercials? Yesterday I was watching Sweet Home Alabama,one of my favorite movies on USA channel and every commercial got SOOO Loud that I had to hit mute. Do these people really think that Billy Mays yelling at us about Sham Wow, Big City Slider gadget, Wonder Hangers, etc. will make us buy these things? NOT! In fact I don't think mute helps their sales pitch at all. Then I find out for $50.00 I can buy an apparatus that will keep my volume where I set it! Why I ask, should I have to buy something to keep my volume where I set it? Give me a break. Think I'll call John Stossel!

Time to clean out the refrigerator, got that off my chest.

There otta' be a law against Billy Mays in general. Even if he was selling something I wanted I would not buy it. I agree that the volume on commercials are very very loud and I don't hear well but, I can hear him. I am glad to find out that I am not the only on hate loud commercials.
Take care.
