DIY , you are watching too much Ellen show, you need to either make other choices or take a nap in the afternoon..
That may be the case for him.
I used to watch a fair bit of Ellen....cause the girls on the treadmills always had it on. The TV's are in front of the treadmills that are in front of the ellipticals...and sometimes the TV was better viewing!
You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!
