Remotes Help Men Conquer the World

Where is the button to just turn on the TV?

Yesterday morning before my son left for the weekend, he showed me how to operate the remote for his apparatus(what is the plural of that?). It looked so simple that I did not try it myself. What a mistake! Last night I turned off the set, and now for the life of me I can not get a channel. Only as I punch the button to turn it off do I see the news channel that I want to watch. And then BLIP, it disappears and everything goes black.

Later, when I think he is awake, I will phone him and ask directions.

Now I know why all the men that I see driving their cars to work are talking on their cell phones. They are explaining to their wives how to turn on the TV.
