Plugs and Sockets
What is it with these engineers? Why can't they leave stuff alone? It's been bad enough learning where all the wretched plugs go into the TV sockets at the back over the years, but then when we've just about got it down they go and change things.
We had to change our TV the other day - the old one developed some nasty sort of disease. I installed the new TV, and I even managed to get the remote re-programed which was a major coup. But then came time to add on the DVD player and the stereo tuner. As far as I'm concerned the previous system was complicated, but not too much. Now in the interests of simplification, the rules and the wires have been changed again. I'm getting to the stage where I hate change!
