    I know many of you have this problem:

    WHERE THE HELL IS MY TV REMOTE?!!

    I hate it when I misplace mine in the stuff around my room, it's like having to search piles for the Remote.....

    Anyone else have to deal with continually searching for the TV Remote or whatever remote you use?

    [It's worse when you have more than 1 remote]

    Buy one of those little keychains that beep when you whistle and attach it to the remote.

    Ya gotta lift up the mouth flaps and grab your stuff, and quickly before he consumes you.

    Along with part of my collection, yeah, my couch also eats my remotes.

    I found both the TV remote and my poor Legends class Skywarp (Movie Stealth Starscream) under a cusion once.

    I'm half to blame for relying on my friend for this: I ordered some things from Ebay through my friend; he used his credit card, and I paid him in cash. The items are being shipped to his address. Anyway, the bastard lost the key to his mailbox! I want to murder him!!!

    Yeah, I'm one of those weird people who usually turns on the TV by actually pressing the button on the TV itself; to top it off, I always leave the remote on top of the TV. Man am I weird.

    I tend to lose my remotes within my bed covers. I'll search all over my room and turn over my blanket and find them there.

    Ebay:
    I'll set it down right in front of me, turn away and it'll be underneath me sometimes. Other times I'll look right at it and not notice it until later. I've even looked for the remote while it's been in my hand.

    Remotes I don't have trouble with - it's pens! I must have hundreds of them at home but I can never find one of the little bastards when I need them...

    I recently lost a remote in my cold air return vent. That was a fun one to get out.
