hehe I'm definitely a control freak ... theres two ways two do things my way and the wrong way lol but as far as TV goes ... you can have it... to me the most annoying thing is someone reading over my shoulder ugghhhhh cant stand that !!
I'm sitting here giggling over this remote control thing. My husband is a remote control freak lol. The one that really gets me the most is the one for the stereo in our bedroom. The stereo is located within arms reach of his side of the bed....can anyone tell me why on earth he needs a remote control for it??
Somewhere in the vast wastelan
Me? I don't like to control. I let things happen. It is better that way. But when there is a need for control I will step up to the role. Like two children fighting over the remote, the remote becomes mine and I have the control. Plus if I tried to control anything all of the time I am bound to make a mistake that I will reget.

PS Control is just an illusion anyway.
If life is just a game, when does it end cause I want to get to what is real.

Oh boy, I found another fun place to hang out! The remote thing is I swear a male problem. Yes I say problem, because it can take a perfectly good natured woman and make her scream STOP IT before I BREAK IT. CAN WE PLEASE WAIT LONG ENOUGH TO SEE WHAT IT WAS???
Question two is one I shall forever ponder, with no answer, I fear.
Why even ask the age old question?Men are men all our problems sart with MEN menstraul cramps, menopause, mental anxiety, menthol ciggarettes (dont ask) men are just put here to annoy us like the gooey jelly on the side of the jelly jar kids always forget to wipe off....

"Why is it that they think they have to control everything?"
~ My wife has complete control over my finances. I wouldn't have it any other way. "I mean take the remote for instance....why is it that guys think they MUST flip from channel to channel to channel to channel in an endless search for something better???"
~ lol...this is sooo true. If my wife could work the damn thing, I'd give it to her "And that's another thing...why is it that some men don't see that the BEST thing that ever happened to them is RIGHT there under their nose????"
~ Because they are always looking somewhere else. In general, men need blinders, like horses wear.
I don't know PdV, I'm going to have to kinda disagree with you on this one...
My wife cannot sit through 30 seconds of commercials for anything, our biggest fights come from her demands for control of the remote control and her inability to leave the blasted TV on one station for any measurable length of time.
I'M THE MAN, I SHOULD HOLD THE REMOTE! (why do you think it is shaped the way it is to begin with?)
Yesterday is ash, tomorrow is smoke; only today does the fire burn. Nil Desperandum, Fata viem invenient
I have no idea why my wife bought me a monogrammed remote for Christmas. By the way, I can get through all 78 channels we receive during the average commercial break. I am still working on the use of two remotes simultaneously to speed up the process. Heck, my goal is to get through the channels so quick I hear John Wayne say, "Pil," watch a bit of the Beave and get back in time to hear the Duke say "grim."
