    Unrealistic things people do in TV dramas that you don't really see in life

    I will start

    When two people are having a conversation and someone is around the corner listening in , never would happen in real life.

    Women finding it "romantic" eventually when a dude is super persistent about chasing them after they've initially expressed a lack of interest.

    Might sound like a cliche, but if she finds him to look good enough that CAN work. Seen it with a male coworker that kept hitting on a female one, after a few months she decided to give him a chance.

    My cliche: people so thick they can't take any hint unless they get slapt in the face.

    Making a large breakfast; pancakes, eggs, coffee, cereal, OJ, toast only MOMENTS before the kids and parents have to leave for school/work. And not one ever eating or storing that shit.

    I legitimately know millionaires who do not do that. It's fucking absurd.

    It's one thing to not eat all the food, but no one is taking the time to personally cook all that in the morning and timing it such that just as you pour a mountain of scrambled eggs on your son's plate he grabs a piece a toast says, "Gotta jet, mom!" and dad has one sip of coffee while holding on to his tie before saying, "My meeting is at 10! Gotta run!"

    No.

    The Dumbest fucking trope in all of entertainment.

    The perfect goodbye/heart felt 1on1 time with a loved one dying or close to death.

    Yeah no....real life is a lot more sudden and if not sudden than the person's illness makes it difficult for them to talk let alone process what you are saying. Plus there are normally doctors, or other people in the room doing busy work making it uncomfortable.

    So you never get the epic goodbye like you do in the movies where you basically make up for lost time, resolve any conflict and give them a loving smile everything will be ok all in one 10minute monologue.

    No, this can happen. Not too uncommon either. Happened with my dad, grandmother, and aunt.

    Also my mother worked with people who had Parkinson's and with hospice care- it can indeed be sudden. But also caretakers are pretty skilled at getting the family together to say goodbye.

    Often 1-on-1 goodbyes are preferred too. Such as again, with my own grandmother we each got to go in throughout her last day and have a talk with her. 1-on-1.

    It does happen. It's just people may not always experience death so frequently and the times when it is sudden are more notable.

    Hi Keith.
    Lmfao.

    It’s worse than people who speak in 3rd person. Like Bob Dole talking about Bob Dole.

    Do people watch these shows because they want to see how real-life they are?

    Ending a conversation with a clear-cut sentence and walking away while the other one looks stunned in disbelief.

    Lord Pebbleton doesn't like when people speak in 3rd person. He finds it very weird

    Doing the same thing over and over expecting different results, like people withholding vital information to the drama at hand because they felt it might hurt someones feelings, but end up hurting peoples feelings in the end by withholding the information, them seemingly learning from it then doing it again next season.

    You're saying that eavesdropping never happens in real life? What?

    I think the biggest thing that annoys me are people who keep secrets about shit that obviously needs to be known by other characters.

    Like, lack of basic human communication.....sometimes between characters who supposedly love and care for each other......is the laziest way to create drama among characters who otherwise like each other. "How could you keep this secret from me! Can I even trust you any more?!?" Goddamn it angers me.

    That's not unrealistic.

    Eavesdropping is a thing that happens. It happens so often that we even have a word to describe the phenomenon.

    What is somewhat unrealistic is when the two people know that the third person is in the house somewhere and they decided to have a loud conversation about them anyway.

    But just stopping and listening to a conversation when the other people don't know you're there? That's happens all the time. I do that. I'm pretty sure you have as well.
