Learning Styles

We've just bought a new remote control for our television.
Our toddler managed to destroy our old remote, so there was no way around it:
We had to go buy a new one.

A universal one.
One with lots of unfamiliar buttons...

Now something you should know about me is that whenever a new electronic device enters our household I get a bit uneasy. Because it means I have to learn how the damn thing works all over again.

Here is a snip-it of the conversation that took place between me and my partner last week after buying the new remote:

Me: (pressing all buttons hysterically): I can't change the channel!!!
He: I'll grab the manual so you can look up what to do.
Me: Nah. (disgusted face) Too many pages.
He: Well there's no logic in just randomly trying things.
Me: I don't understand... This used to work with the old one.
He:  Just take your time. Turn it off and start from the beginning.
Me: Never mind. I'll just keep trying and see what happens.

Needless to say my partne…
