Restless Remote Syndrome

Restless Remote Syndrome (RRS) is defined as the inability to prevent yourself from seeing what else is on the television even though the program you're watching is the one most desired. It's important to note that RRS occurs while a show is in progress, not during commercial breaks when channel surfing is common.

RRS can be burdensome to long-term relationships, but is usually not as burdensome as erectile dysfunction. For example: The ninth inning is about to start and your partner minimizes the brilliant HD field to a square box in the top right hand corner of the screen causing you to react like Gordon Ramsey in the midst of Hell's Kitchen.

While it's speculated that Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) plays a part, there has been no clinical study to support the assumption.

Treatments for RRS include reading, online shopping, and in severe cases, writing a blog.
