View Full Version : panic in my house

When I come home from work, I turn on my tv. It's something I do every day, I don't really sit down to watch it, it's just always on.
After my husband came home from work, we cleaned, cooked and ate dinner.
Finally, we sat down to watch some tv.
My hubby goes, " where is the remote?"
Me, " I don't know".
" But honey, you turned on the tv, where did you put the remote?"
" Did you get groceries today?"
" Let's see, we ate dinner, yeah I went to the store today".
Which promted him to look in the fridge and the freezer, " not there".
Trashcan was empty, he had thrown out the trash that morning. We know it did not end up in the trash.
We looked everywhere.
He asked me, " did you go to the bathroom?'
"Let me think, I've been home for hours, I am pretty sure that I went to the bathroom, at least once".
We are looking in the cabinettes, under the sink and the bathtub in both bathrooms. Not there.
So he asked me, " do you think you could have flushed it"?
My answer was, " I don't think this big remote would go down". " Plus even on my foggiest days of brain fog, would I use a remote control as toilet paper"? " I DON'T THINK SO".
By that time we are rolling on the floor, laughing so hard, it hurt.
I had to sit down and rest. My hubby is sitting across from me, thinking aloud, " we are going to have to buy a new tv".
Nice try honey, we just have to buy a new remote.
We looked high and low, even in the mailbox, that is where I found my missing keys once.
I am so tired. STUPID REMOTE.
I am sitting down, watching whatever is on the current channel.
In between he is asking me questions, like, " did you feed the cats?. I don't remember, " do they have food in their bowl?"
They did, so he looked in the bag of catfood. Not there.
He looked in all the normal and not so normal places.
The not so normal places where, litterbox, washer& dryer, in the bed, under the bed, in the oven.
Finally he said, that we are just going to buy a new one.
He stopped looking for the stupid remote.
Now he is sitting on the couch, looking pittyful, just imagine that, A MAN WITHOUT HIS REMOTE.
The phone rings, I was in the kitchen to answer it. I grab it, " Where is the talk button?" "Where are my reading glasses?"
" I can't see a thing."
I hold in my hand, taa, daa, not the phone, but the REMOTE CONTROL. It has been sitting on the cradle, station, charger,
whatever you want to call it, the intire time.
So my friends, every time you think you have looked every where, THINK AGAIN.
Throughout this whole ordeal, all I could think about, how patient this man is, never getting anoyed, or impatient.

That's funny! You know, once, I found a bottle of A-1 Steak Sauce and a shaker of lemon pepper in my toolbox. I've actually looked for my favorite hat in a panic, only to discover I'm already wearing it!

This sort of situation really backfired on me a few weeks ago. My husband was looking for the instant coffee at my mum's house and couldn't find it anywhere in her pantry. He found it in her fridge and I asked Mum if she was OK because my grandma had had dementia at Mum's age. Then she told me quite firmly, to which my sister and her husband agreed, that keeping instant coffee in the fridge keeps it fresh. I never knew that. That just shows that it is dangerous to judge someone just because you think they might be a bit absent minded sometimes.
