Talking over movie or TV dialog is my biggest pet peeve, because my hearing aids treat all voices equally. So when I hear more than one voice at a time, each is canceled out and becomes gibberish. I then get completely lost. Most frustrating is when someone asks, “What did they say?” and I can’t hear the next few minutes of dialog. If they have to ask what was said, it’s time to listen closely or get hearing aids. I don’t understand why people use TV or movies as background for chit-chat. Save the conversation for drinks and dinner afterward.

I have recently retired from a marketing and technical writing and editing career and am thoroughly enjoying writing for myself and others.
