Who else thinks TV remotes should have pager buttons like cordless phones do?

I think they should. Seriously... I have been trying to find ours for about an hour now... thanks to my 3 year old. lol. When I ask him "Where did you put the remote?" he just looks at me for a second and says "Ummmm..... I don't know." LoL.

But before he started saying that, he sent me on a wild goose chase. He said that he put it in his kitchen (plastic play kitchen). So I went and looked through the whole thing -- the refrigerator, oven, microwave, and the all of the little cabinets. Not there. Little fibber. LoL

So wouldn't it be cool if they made a pager button for remote controls? Not just TV remotes... DVD, stereo, all kinds of remotes. I think that would be a good idea!

  • I've been saying that for years!
    It would make things so much easier. We used to have velcro on the remote and the tv and stick the remote to the side so we wouldn't loose it. But, we kept forgetting to put it on there!
    I would love a pager button. Something that just stays attached to something and you push a button to make the clicker beep. Great!

  • ME! Same with my cell phone and keys! I lose my cell all the time in the house and have no one to call it for me so I can find it.
