    8-26-08 Question of the Day

    Why do you press harder on the remote-control when you know the battery is dead?

    I don't press harder, but I do bang it on the table.

    I'll take the batteries out and switch them around or clean off the ends to see if I can get just a little more juice til I can find batteries to fit. Reca, I think you might be the only one who presses harder, lol. OMG, am I agreeing with Jenna????? Damn, I gotta get out more!

    I think this is a Reca-specific question but I could be wrong.

    It seems that Reca is sharing his life's misfortunes here by asking us questions relating to his personal experiences

    I do the press harder thing until my wife gets home. Then, I have her get some new batteries out of the drawer and bring them over to me!

    You press it harder because you want to make sure the issue is a dead battery and not the fact that you didn't push the button hard enough for the censor to activate and perform the desired function.

    Thats why I get the rechargeables. Sure they cost more but they last longer and have more uses. When they die just plug them in tho the recharger and use another set.

    There's nothing like kicking a dead horse when it's down.
