Lol, I do that, even with a touch screen remote.. You know, the ones which have no buttons, but are just touch sense. :P

I've done it a few times when the batteries are dying. But the remote for my housemates tv is crap, it's old and broken, so you do actually need to push down hard on the buttons  ;)

I hate having to look for the remote. We have a tiny living room with a coffee table that takes most of the room up. So usually the remotes live on there, as it makes sense. But I'm forever having to hunt high and low of them just to find the one I need down the side of the sofa  ::)  ;)
The worst is when you need to put your hand down the side of chairs or sofas, all the crumbs and dust and other things you can't quite work out what they are, ewwwww, that's just nasty   :-X  ;)

It is vile to have to go down the sides, but sometimes it pays off. One day I was able to buy an ice cream  ;)

My dad was terrible when I was younger, If I was hunting for the remote and was looking down the sides and found any money it was his  ::) Granted, it was actually his but I went through all the mess to get it, surly I should get a share ;)

I think we should give Tarzan a visit, he could show us around the jungle and we can finally find out the truth about his lack of beardness  ;)
