That my 65 year-old father COULD NOT find the pause button on the remote control. Even when I pointed it out to him, he defended himself by saying, "How could I know that those two lines meant 'pause'?!?!?!"
I still don't know what to do with this one. How many years have we had remotes and VCRs? Twenty-five at least.
The next time you are talking to your cable company's technical assistance, ask them how many calls a day they get from *seniors* who can't operate the remote control. I think it's very well half their workload.
Categorically 'old coots' and 'old bags' are stumped by the *TV power*/*cable power* mind-boggler. Invariably, they leave one of them on permanently.
