Three Weird Places Your Remote Might Be Hiding

The Godzilla marathon on the free movie channel is about to start in about 10 minutes, and you’re ready to scream in frustration louder than a nuclear, lizard god because you just cannot find the remote controls for TV. You’ve looked under the sofa, between the seat cushions, in all of the drawers–everywhere–but the stupid television remote controls are just nowhere to be found.

Take a deep breath. Before you give up and buy a TV remote replacement, try looking in one of these unconventional spots for your TV remote controls!

The Fridge.

If you’ve ever been been deep in the throes of a snack attack, you know the kind of tunnel vision such hunger might come with. It can blind you to everything around you but the object of your consumption. Maybe you were so busy making that grilled cheese or that frozen burrito that you didn’t even realize you put the TV remote controls in the fridge instead of the cheese.

The Bathroom.

As Jeff Goldblum said in Jurassic Park, “when you gotta go, you gotta go.” Maybe you or someone else rushed off to the toilet in such a rush that the TV remote controls came along with. Try looking by the sink, or on the floor, or even maybe right on top of the toilet’s reservoir. The bathroom has a number of hiding spots the TV remote controls could be in.

The Garbage.

TV remotes don’t look anything like junk mail or garbage, but if we’re being honest, cleaning is a chore–not a fun activity–so most people tend to rush through it as fast as possible. When in such a hurry, it can be easy to casually overlook just what exactly is getting thrown away.

Failing these places, you can always just turn the TV on by hand, but who’d want to go through the hassle of pressing the “channel up” button a few hundred times until you got to the movie channel? By the time you got there, Godzilla would’ve already beaten Mothra and saved the day! Plus, giving up means having to buy TV remote controls replacements.
