So what are we complaining about? The kid upset he doesn't watch a DVR or he is watching TV on a cruise? For all we know, it could have been a stormy day at sea. It could have been bed time and he had the TV on while getting ready for bed. If it is the DVR, it is the same in the sense that each kid has their own computer now, where as 10 years ago a kid of the same age would have only had 1 computer in the house.
lol, its funny how things become "common" in our life, I remember getting married 6 years ago and buying my first dvr and I felt pretty important and blessed that I could afford that "luxury item". Now when we go to our cabin in west virginia, my wife will ask me to pause the tv and come to see what she is looking at, and I just grin.
