Take me back a half-century…

Argh. I go to watch The Cosby Show (!) on DVD before I fall asleep, but I find out my DVD Players buttons have stopped working altogether which is a great annoyance because now I have to use the remote control.

Now whilst I greatly encourage advances in technology, especially of the wireless variety, the unseen horror here is that I am so excellent at losing things like remote controls or the batteries of remote controls.

Now, if only I could have a line of some kind to trace it to where I left the remote… whatever happened to remote-control on a wire? I think we were definitely on to something…

  1. I hate it when I lose something and someone inevitably asks “Where did you see it last?”

    People like that deserve to have their ears ripped off and have them posted, Surface Mail, to Chile!

    I one time had a TV that the power button busted so that if I were to accidentally push it, it would get stuck in. The screen would flash on and off and on and off until I got the guts to get it out with some pliers.

    After weeks of this i finally put tape over it with big sharpie letters saying, “Don’t TOUCH!” Only to discover that I had lost my remote.

    I feel your pain.
