“Oh, sure, I’d be happy to house sit for you for three weeks.”
“Thanks, feel free to do whatever. Watch tv, listen to the stereo.”
“Cool, man. Danke.”
Has this ever happened to you? Of course it has because you’re a great guy. Now be honest, how great were you when you settled in on your bud’s couch with a six pack and pizza ready to watch the NBA finals when it occured to you that your friend’s entertainment set up required five remote controls? Answer: Not great at all. It’s not possible to keep a count of the curses streaming from your cheetos hole as you struggled with determining which remote controlled which piece of equipment. Even if you figure out which runs which, you still have to have to know the right settings. Do you set the tv on Line 1 or Line 2 or Output/Input or Import/Export? Does the system run through the Paystation4? Or the cable hook up? Or the Yoku? Or the satellite dish? If you have been victimized by this modern technology, you understand this pain. If you have not been humbled by buttons consider yourself forewarned and contemplate your friendships carefully.
Proverbs 13:20 Become wise by walking with the wise;
hang out with fools and watch your life fall to pieces.
