Big news in our house:
We got a new remote!!!
Our DVR died recently. This seems to happen every five years or so, and thankfully the company sends us a new one without a lot of hassle.
But as I learned last time, new DVRs don’t come with new remotes.
Sooooo, the remote we had was about ten years old.
The battery cover was long gone. The faces of the buttons were gone.
This time, while on the phone with the satellite rep, I thought to inquire about a new remote control. I decided it was worth $20 every ten years to have one that works without standing up and repeatedly mashing buttons and muttering unkind things about technology under my breath.
And after a tell-me-every-teeny-tiny-step call with customer service, this one even controls the TV and the Blu-Ray and everything.
We’re big time now, y’all.
And yet the old one sat by the new one for a week. I hated that thing, but didn’t pitch it until I was “cleaning up.”
Whatever. It’s gone now.--Nony
