Living without TV pitfalls

I will admit there are some pitfalls to living without a TV:
  • You don’t get to complain about all the stupid commercials because you never see them.
  • The TV Guide, that you once faithfully perused each week in order to arrange your schedule to fit the shows you wanted to watch, is now just a bunch of gibberish.
  • You might have to talk to the people who live in the same house as you.
  • You can’t use the excuse, “I don’t have time to exercise.”
  • You’ll have to buy more shelves to hold all your new books.
  • The house gets awfully quiet – some would say peacefully quiet.
  • You have to get your news from a newspaper or from the internet where stories take longer to read because they’re more in-depth.
  • There’s no reason to buy a new TV because your old one will last forever because it never gets used.
  • People will look at you as if you’re crazy.
  • You don’t care what other people think, because you know the truth: TV is a waste of our precious time.
