Don't leave the shopping cart (trolley) unattended in a place where it will obstruct the passage of others.

Don't stop  beside other shoppers and chat.

The cart is not an all seeing babysitter, and it can not protect your child in your absence.

A pusherless cart in the checkout line does not guarantee your place in the line.

just a few i thought i would mention for now...heh

Don't ever give in, if you do you've lost everything you've ever had and everything you hope to gain, but if you carry on your already winning.

Us guys don't like the stock remote anyways.  We want the all in one universal super duper remote.

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??

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 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.

My mother and father both have a remote control.  They flip the channel on each other and then argue about THAT.  

My current "friend" is a flipper, but the remote broke.  Unless he is already up, I now get the honors of getting MY butt up off the chair and changing the channel ROFL

want the choice of channel??  break the remote!!! LOL

"Why is it that they think they have to control everything?"

They don't -- but like Don Quixote, they think they have to try!

"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??? "

It's a surrogate, which is why women always focus on it too..... (I sense a Poetry Challenge here, but I can't quite work out how to phrase it....)

An endless search for something better? Why that's built into our genes, not to mention our jeans, which takes us back to that surrogate thing, doesn't it?

"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????"

Well, maybe.... but I shaved it off at my wife's request......

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?)

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."

You know you're getting old, I think, when every day gives rise to a new definition of what it is to get old.

For example, at my age, I think I have more respect for the remote control than what I'm sensing in this thread. Why? Because when I was growing up, I was the remote.
