That sounds pretty reasonable to me! My dad and I are similar to you in that, when commercials come on the TV, we absolutely cannot function unless it’s turned down. You can try to talk to us, whatever, but it won’t work. When I was a baby, I guess I used to cry my head off whenever my parents took me into public or somewhere noisy like restaurants. I wouldn’t stop until they got me out of there.
Now that I think of it, not much has changed, haha.
