What’s everyone’s take on how long you can expect to remain spoiler free/expect others to keep from spoiling?
I think it’s dependent on the popularity of the show. Game Of Thrones is currently god tier popularity. When something is that massive, I think the statute of limitations is 2 days tops. GoT is currently must see TV/appointment television. Ill give you an extra day in case you missed it, but Come Tuesday, open discussion is fair came. Less popular TV shows have a longer spoiler free period due to the lack of urgency around conversations about them. You’re not stifling all your coworkers conversation because you didn’t see the last episode of The Good Doctor or something.
Movies are a bit different, and I think you get a spoiler policy until it’s no longer in theaters. You can’t expect people to not discuss it while your lazy ass waits for it to come out on DVD.
I will go with a couple of days or even a week for spoilers. Otherwise you are correct the discussion is fair game. So leave the room, put on headphones or change the station channel, but you cannot complain.
I will say it does annoy me when a podcast or radio show blurts out a big reveal just to be funny.
Also my one cat is sick. I’ve been dropper feeding him pedialyte and watered down wet food, and he is responding well. He’s been so stressed since the dog has gotten big enough to be intimidating to him. I’m trying really hard to give him lots of positive attention and love while he’s around the dog to try to make him less uncomfortable and he is responding well to that too. Keeping a close eye on him, feeding him four times a day, and just smothering him with attention. If he doesn’t eat by himself consistently tomorrow though, I have to make him an appointment. He’s my soul creature, he can’t die.
