Hahaha! My husband and I ask each other this question on a regular basis…kids need a volume knob and an off button – similar to the baby robot in the movie “Robots”!
You’ve got my vote.
Our first didn’t come with one, but our 8 month old takes a pacifier (praise baby Jesus!), and that’s sort of the same… for now… until she’s 8 and needs head gear.
Ha ha ha ha! I want to try that. Just sticking a pacifier in the mouth of anything that OFFing. Coworkers, jerks in line, rude government employees, mimes, oh and my kids, too.
And when they’re teenagers, you start looking for the “ON” button.
It’s a sad but true fact: they do have an ON button for getting going with something that needs get-going on, that’s the true part, the sad part is that you have to press it 259 times for it to register.
Sometimes I point the remote at my kids and press the “off” button, or the “volume” button…
…it never works.
@ Desiree: not to be a contrarian, but the last thing that teenagers need to be is turned on!
Hahaha! OK, I get your point. But I meant “get up off the couch and stop texting! We have THINGS to do!”
They need both buttons! But with labels qualifying WHAT they turn ON and what they turn OFF. And some big ass caution signs around each. And some red flashing lights. And one of those plastic covers that a nuclear missile launch button has.
I feel you Elizabeth! I often ask where is the mute button.
My cousin’s kid doesn’t have an off button, but he does have a “reset” one. It’s cute and I’m not sure where he learned it.
You touch the back of his neck and he’ll curl up on the floor with his legs and arms folded underneath him. He’ll stay like that for a few moments and then hop up and run around again! LOL
Wow! An android boy. With a “sleep mode.” Rad.
I think 3M makes one under the brand name Duct Tape.
I think that, whether you are right or wrong about that, you are a genius.
How about #27 “Hun, where’s the button to turn YOU on?”…Which comes right before # 28 “I hope you have a good memory.”
Wait, I’m confused. This category is “My wife just said” so it’s all the stuff she said. Are you suggesting that my wife would ever ask ME where the button to “turn me on” is??? Her question would more likely be “which button doesn’t turn you on, you nasty goat man?” Ha ha!
I have been guilty of turning down the volume knob in my car when my kids get loud. My husband points and laughs.
That’s amazing. I’ll have to try that. Even if it doesn’t work, I still have to try that.
The point and laugh part or the turn down the volume bit?
If I’m honest, I’d have to say BOTH. Ha ha! I enjoying laughing too much not to laugh at myself. There’s gold in them thar hills!
Usually it is hidden – if I find one over here I can let you know!
If you can find one, you will be a billionairess.
