"E.T. Phone Home!"

You know you're having a bad day when you pick up the TV remote, punch in the telephone number you need to call.......And wonder why they're not picking up.

I reckon all those remote controls were designed by people with evil and mischievous minds, who probably madly giggle while imagining the unlimited confusion they can inflict on the innocent and unwary.

And then finally discover why you can't change channels on the phone.....yes, I know!

We have a sheaf of the wretched things , all silvery-grey , and I'm never holding the right one !
But , an old fashioned girl at heart , I've kept my traditional black telephone with the irritating curly-wurly flex so can at least 'phone at will .

Funny lady! You were gone too long, this last time.

Relax, have some tea and come by to visit sometimes. ;D

You have just come up with an idea for the latest technological gadget - a remote phone!

I'm sure your mind was on higher things. Such as quilt-making.

I agree with Isabelle. :)) And, ha, you made me chuckle. :)

Modern technology has so many gifts... and so much confusion.
