for Six Sentence Stories where the given word is Control.
I have a love-hate relationship with my television’s remote control, I’m convinced it has a mind of its own.
I press this and it does that, I press that and it does this, and too often something unexpected pops up on the screen or the telly switches off.
Admittedly I do have sausage-like fingers which means I often stab two or more buttons at once, they really should make them larger to suit everybody not just people with skinny digits.
It’s got voice control, but I prefer using the buttons, it goes without saying!
Talking of buttons, there are so many of them, and I don’t know what half of them are supposed to do; PVR, EPG, Event list, Soundbase … what?
I’m told that when the inventor of the remote control passed away they found his body between the cushions on his sofa – the old jokes are the best!
