If You Give a Man a New TV

Posted by Carol on January 1, 2008

If you give a mouse a cookie a man a new TV, he’s going to ask for a new DVD player to go with it.

When you give him the the new DVD player, the guys from Best Buy are going to tell you that you also need a new HD receiver.

When you give him the new HD receiver, he’s going to ask for a new Universal Remote to go with it.

When you give him the new Universal Remote, the nice young men from the blue & yellow store are going to offer to install the new equipment for you.

When they offer to install the new equipment for you, they are going to tell you that you also need three brand new HDMI cables.

When the nice young men from Best Buy tell the man the installation will only cost $600 and the new cables will cost $500, the man will tell the guys from Best Buy, that he will do the installation himself.

When the man decides to do the installation himself, he will also want to rearrange the family room furniture in order to avoid purchasing so much of those pesky new cables.

When the man decides to rearrange the family room furniture, he’s also going to want to rearrange the basement to make room for the old TV.

When he rearranges the basement to make room for the old TV, he is also going to want to clean up the storage area of the basement.

While he’s cleaning up the storage area of the basement, the man is going to ask his wife to call DirecTV to get the new system activated.

When she calls DirecTV to get the new system activated, they’re going to tell her that they need a new satellite dish because their current one was made in the dark ages.

When she makes the appointment for the new satellite dish to be installed, the guy on the phone is going to tell her that they need a new satellite receiver  – something about new technology…blah, blah, blah, yada, yada, yada…..

When she tells her husband that they need a new satellite receiver, he’s going to sigh, sit down, and ask for a glass of milk.

And when she gives him a glass of milk, he’s going to want a cookie to go with it….and the remote control.

(No husbands or Best Buy employees were harmed in the writing of this post. Any similarities to actual people or events are entirely on purpose. Credit goes to my children for sparking the idea for this post.) 🙂
