Did you watch the Bachelor?

I'll be watching The Bachelor tonight and tomorrow at lunch time our conversation at lunch will go something like this:

Co-Worker #1: "Did you watch The Bachelor last night?"
ME: "Yes, I did."
Co-Worker #2: "Don't say anything. I recorded it and didn't have time to watch it."

This has happened the past 3 weeks so it will likely happen tomorrow. You know you've been in this situation before. I remember going to church Superbowl Sunday night and having the game on tape hoping nobody would leak the score and ruin the opportunity watch it innocently.

So who is in the right of way here? Should the 2 people who have seen it have to yield their conversation to the person who hasn't seen it? Should they talk about it anyway. Should the person who recorded it just accept that it will be talked about and then go watch it with a little bit of knowledge?

Chime in!

I think Miss Manners would say that the co-worker who has not seen it should excuse themselves from spoilers if they don't want to hear them, but that those who have seen should not spill the beans until the clueless one is out of earshot.

Kinda like people who feel the need to tell you the end of a movie and then asking after they told you if you had seen it yet. People like that should be shot!

Reply to anonymous: I can't bring a pistol to school.....medal detectors. I could do it on the parking lot I guess.

Reply to Deanna: yes, but it is Tuesday morning and routine to talk about the day before shows.

You're in the wrong because you watched the Bachelor (actually your mistake was admitting you watch). Blogs about your diet and the Bachelor, hmmm...
Chad was the anonymous comment btw...ticketspeak

Reply to billyv: you don't watch anything because you are driving a lot.
