R is for remote

My dad recently bought a new 55" television that is curved. I visited my parents the other day and noticed him fussing over it.

He was having difficulty setting it up. I asked him where the instruction manual was. My dad is a typical guy who would rather figure out how to hook up the TV without consulting instructions. He told me that he was "too busy to read them." Okay.

My dad handed me the television remote and asked me to figure out how to power on the TV. So, I did. It took me perhaps a couple of seconds, as the most.

My mom laughed so hard.

The good news is that we got the television set up and my parents are happy campers who can watch their favourite shows again on a larger screen.


  1. LOL CB...I can empathize with your tv and dvd can challenge the heck out of me and I read the blasted instructions! My poor mom is constantly phoning AT&T (she has U-Verse) because she has accidentally pushed a button and doesn't know how to fix it. Congrats on being able to help your I know who to contact when I have trouble! :D

    Hugs and blessings...

    1. Maybe it's a good thing that I live north of you. It sounds like the TV setup is more complicated!
