(MUTE) WHAT?? I can't hear you.

Ti-faux (not tivo but the Dish Network version)
Ya know, the fake Tivo?


Can't live with out it.

Wouldn't it be cool if humans had features like that?

Fast Forward, maybe?
Because Sometimes (Ok all of the time) Big girl spews too many details when she is telling me something.
"Momma, You know that dog (the one down the street, the black one not the brown one)?"
"Well, he just got in the neighbors (the neighbor that lives across from the man....not the tall skinny man but the round old man) garbage can."
"There are cans (looks like green giant green beans but it could be corn, I am not sure) everywhere."
"Should I go over there and help them pick it up? (Well, not all of it. Just the stuff that will not get on my hands. I don't wanna touch anything gross because I just put lotion on my hands.)
Ya know, the lotion that was in the bathroom cabinet? Not the small bathroom but the other one."

in other words: SPIT IT OUT!

A rewind button would come in handy too.
Ya know, to find out WHO REALLY licked that icing off of the cake.
Cuz no one wants to fess up any other way.
Yep, I am still ill over that one.

PAUSE would be good too.
I could finally get my TIME OUT without making my children leave a message after the BEEEEP!
Uh huh, I do that.
When I have had it for the day.....You will get this lil message:
DONE as in D-----ONE!

MUTE, Need I say more?
blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
blahhh blah blah

What? I can't hear you.
You have been muted.

Oh, and I can almost guarantee that this remote would NEVER be lost. I would tie it around my neck if needed.
Speaking of fast forwarding:
Does anyone else fast forward through the dying scenes(tv shows)?
Ya know, the ones that take for-ever??
A cough here
A cough there
One last goodbye
Oh, now a vision
Uh-oh here come the bright lights.
Another cough.
Fast forward....
Die already.

Am I the only one to do this??
Please tell me I am not.
Should I be ashamed?

LMAO I totally need that! PS I told my kids that I'll take them to the cops and they can tell me who licked the icing off the cake!

I LOVE watching some shows on On Demand for just that reason. And I agree, they need those features for some people. A mute button for my 8yo would be nice for those days where he blabs from the time he wakes up until the time he goes to bed.

I LOVE the mute idea... And I think I may start making my kids leave a message... Great idea!

I would LOVE a mute button.

I think my husband would use it on me too when I was nagging..

You could be a bazillionaire if you had this. It is so fabulous and something I long for daily. The mute button would be my bff and the fast forward button. There are also a few moments that I would like to rewind too...obviously to find the culprit in many instances, but also those few moments when my children are playing nicely together or they are sleeping angels. Granted, that button wouldn't be used much, but still nice to have.

Happy SITS Saturday! Love that post, so funny! And... I would definitely like to get a remote like that!

Stopping by from SITS to say hi!

I sometimes want things to move faster so that it will be a time when all the bills will be paid, etc, but then I think I'll have missed so much! There is a great movie about a guy who uses a remote control to rewind, fast forward and mute his life, its called "Click" with Adam Sandler. I think you'd like it!

I would do almost anything for a remote like that! I have fake Tivo too. Dish Network version and I seriously doubt I could go back to regular TV without it.
