Here's a scenario:

It's the weekend and PersonA tells PersonB that they would prefer to stay in as they wanted to watch a certain TV Programme and could watch a DVD.rather than going out.

PersonB would also prefer too stay in too, and goes over to PersonA's house. They chill for a bit and then go down to watch the TV Programme as it starts. PersonB really has no interest in the programme, is really bored and looks it. PersonA just sits there in silence glued to the programme and after an hour the programme finishes. PersonA switches is over to another programme but PersonB has had enough, can't take anymore and says they'll just go as they came over to see and spend time with PersonA not too watch programmes they had no interest in but PersonA goes in the huff, switches the tele off and they both go up and watch a DVD.

PersonA: Feels that it's rude / bad manners to ditact what to watch in other peoples houses and that one should watch whats on TV. Also PersonA feels that they stated clearly that they wanted to watch that certian programme and PersonB didn't need to come over.

PersonB: Feels that PersonA lacks the consideration for others feelings (Inconsiderate), even though PersonB didn't need to come they wanted to come to see PersonA and that if they never said anything the other programme would probarly have continued.

Who do you pledge for, PersonA or PersonB and why?

Your gf clearly wanted to spend time with you, cuddle up etc, rather than watch whatever crap you wanted to watch. If you just wanted to watch the programme, perhaps do it alone next time.

Person A is right.

Wtf? Person B knew it would be a telly night, so why the **** go over if you weren't happy with it? B sounds like a girl and A a boyfriend, yeah?

The only thing that could make person B a bit more in the right is if Person A was being extremely rude - as in, not talking to B at all, blanking him/her. Because even though A stated clearly it was going to be all about the telly, if he/she was really prepared to make no effort, they should have told B not to bother coming round.

Both are right. I'd be agitated if I was held up from kissing the girl "of my dreams".

I' personally think there's flaws on both sides in a way.

Well "PersonA just sat there in silence glued to the programme."

Person A is right.. Its her house, and it was probably soap night or desperate housewife night! Good gf's appreciate men need to watch their footy or other sports...
Sounds like a misunderstanding, on B's part..he should have understood..

i would go for PersonB.
a guest is a guest, i'd be alarmed at rudeness to a visitor =.=" otherwise PersonA should've dismissed PersonB if they didnt WANT them there.

depends on how person B said he was bored because if he said it considerably it would have been fine and person A should have gotten into a Huff

Person A is right. They clearly stated what they were going to do that night.

Person C is right. They avoided a night in with two whiners.

Though if I had to choose, Person A is right, and Person B is clingy. If someone tried to talk to me while I was watching Doctor Who or Desperate Housewives I'd slap them.

It's funny how a mixture of genders are saying different answers. Very mixed responses here.

Person A. They did exactly what they said they would do- plus if person B had politely suggested something they both liked, it prolly would have been fine.
