    Get up, push button or buttons on the TV, return to seat…

    Such an amazing grasp of the obvious.

    that’s WAY to technical. My parents, who grew up with console TVs, fly into a panic if they can’t find a remote. In the mean time I’ve walked to the set, turned it on and found the right channel.

    And there was a Duracell ad on my page… Do I need batteries???

    I"m surprise that the remote still works at all concerning just how much both Peter and Paige uses it to zip through channels.

    When I was Peter’s age I had to get up, walk ALL THE WAY across the living room floor JUST to change the channel on the TV!

    Surely there’s something he can get more batteries out of. Luckily remotes don’t take 9Vs.

    Peter, what are you doing with the smoke alarm!?

    You want to see absolute chaos, watch the checkout counter when the scanner is down. 3 items an they can’t add them up and then make change.

    It might be worse than you think, my tv has no buttons on the console, and I must rely on remotes.

    My first remote needed no batteries and could not get lost. It was always on the end of that long wire attached to the TV.

    Not sure that’s a fair comparison. Very few items have actual price tags on them any more. The consumer reads the price from the shelf, but the checkout girl doesn’t know the price at all, she learns it when the machine scans the barcode and tells her. Also there is the issue of taxes. Even if the cashier knows the tax rate, nothing is in even dollars anymore, so you wind up asking the kid to multiply some weird number like 11.23 by another weird number like .06…that’s not math most people can do in their head. Maybe stores are different where you live, but I certainly wouldn’t be able to check you out without a scanner the way things are done in my neck of the woods!

    These days without a remote you are very limited in what you can do. Not much on the controls on the TV (or cable box) to manipulate. And if you have cable….get more batteries!

    Always be prepared for any type of situation

    That’s true. Last time my remote went dead, I actually had to unplug the TV to turn it off.
