I spent 2 hours trying to figure out hy I was getting no sound from my pc, it wasn't till I remembered that I swapped the plug for the speakers for the one to re-charge the battery on my mobile phone that the penny dropped!
Sad or what!

I recently spent half hour trying to get my VCR to rewind, fast forward or play. Turned it on/off, changed batteries in remote all the usual stuff. Then found I didn't have a tape in the machine.

My folks often call me to come and help them with Sky. Recently My Dad complained that Sky refused to work, the reason why?..............He was using the wrong remote!

Yep, that was really stooooopid but at least your speakers were turned on, i spent ages trying to get sound before realising they weren't even switched on.

My partner wanted to call Sky about our TV, and asked me dial the number for him. I dialled it and when they answered passed the phone... He spent ages giving them our info and they said we have no records for you. Then he said he mentioned the Sky card and the lady said "Sir, this is NTL".

I dialled the wrong number.

I wondered why I couldn't get hold of my mum on her mobile phone until I discovered she was carrying the TV remote control!!
