I’m always arguing with my wife about the remote control in our bedroom. What side of the bed should it stay on and who has control of the channel we are watching?

This problem is in the bedrooms of most Canadians!

I have dealt with this exact issue in the homes of my clients.

The answer is simple — buy two remotes with your TV. Generic remotes from your local hardware or department store are often available.


But now who gets to pick the TV program?

Butlers are wise people but this is a couples problem that only the two of you can resolve.

I would suggest negotiating and playing United Nations in your bedroom. Taking turns every other show or every other day is your choice.

Remember, the nicer you are to your wife, the nicer she will be with you!
