The TV Remote, Why So Many Buttons?

TSM/Loren Petisce

I have to admit, I rarely watch TV, and the reason is because I can’t ever figure out the dang remote!

I’ve tried over and over to figure out the overwhelming amount of buttons on this thing. Which one is for the X-Box, which one is for the DVR, which one is for cable? It’s ridiculous! So that’s why I have just given up for the most part.  I don’t want to deal with it, so I’ve basically forfeited all of my favorite shows.

Last night though, I found out that ‘Mean Girls’ was going to be on TV and I really wanted to watch it. I thought, well, I guess I’ll just have to press all the flippin’ buttons til I get it right! Absolutely pathetic that it took me TEN WHOLE MINUTES to get the TV on, and locate the correct channel. While it’s insane that there’s that many buttons on the remote, it makes me feel like a moron for not being able to figure it out! I consider myself to be a fairly intelligent and educated human being, but man I don’t feel that way when it comes time to operate that thing!

Please tell me I’m not the only one who has multiple TV remotes with a plethora of buttons that make it almost impossible to watch TV?
