Is it uncommon for groups of people to partake in their own individual activities while say at a party or over at one another's house? Furthermore, if you live with a person would you consider it disrespectful if you were watching TV while I quietly browsed the internet to myself? My cousin feels it is disrespectful for me to do my own thing in his presence, and it really pisses him off for reasons I cannot fathom other than 'he can't concentrate'. The kicker is, I didn't know this bugged him until tonight, so is he technically at fault for not informing that this peeved him sooner? I think so. He also claims to not enjoy drama, well, none of this silly shit would bother me personally, so is he just making a big deal out of nothing?

Note : I'm usually completely silent while browsing, I don't even type.

That wont work - it will probably lure him into hitting me again. Oh, and I'm the lesser man for not seeking revenge and actually having control of myself.

He's obviously trying to engage you in the same activities that he's doing, seeking active companionship in leui of more passive interaction. This has been going on for a while If he feels the need to express his discontent by claims of your activities indirectly aggravating him. An easy way to dissolve his mock credibility would be to simply surf the Internet in another room, but that doesn't address the roots of his inability to abide your actions.

He knows his qualms hold no real water and he's redirecting attention to a more tangible concern in hopes of you subtly addressing the issue. This stems from a fear of being embarrassed as he still values your opinion of him and he'd rather you see him as an aggravator then appeal to your relationship.

How you deal with the problem is up to you. Personally I'd tell him to shut the fuck up and stop being such a fucking pussy about expressing himself, but I have the advantage of years of dealing with pussyfooting motherfuckers.

Hanging out with my friends in similar situations usually leads to an unsaid agreement that anyone can come and go at their leave, and do whatever the fuck they want in the meantime. I'm not a fan of being obligated to do anything so that's just the way I like it.

You made me feel so much better man. LOL

But apparently no one else will see things this way, according to him.

Unless we're going out we just sit around and watch TV, listen to music, and play games. It's not odd at all to do your own thing.

Your cousin seems like a twat you should avoid hanging out with. Just because you are with someone doesn't mean you have to do the same exact thing that they are doing.

What's the number to the men's shelter again?

No, your cousin is just an idiot.
If the two of you just happen to be in the same room you can do whatever you want.

Your behavior sounds very normal, I think your cousin has issues.
