Rushing to open the door to grab the newspaper the first thing in the morning
Fighting to read the newspaper
Looking out anxiously for the postman every 2 minutes when its time for him to drop the mail/Peering into the postbox whenever passing through it
Regularly alternating between the News channels to get the SAME news
Become a regular long distance train traveller
Just wait for the person seeing TV to vacate the seat and immediately occupy the same and see some boring channel (since the programme to want to see is a good 30 minutes away) for the only reason that no one else should occupy the seat. A better and oft repeated but successful idea is to pick up an argument with the person on that chair so that he vacates the seat after a good quarrel and you end up hearing him cursing you but you get the prized catch of the TV remote..
and many more traditions....
