New Digital T.V. & DVD Player

I have a new digital TV and DVD player.  I don’t say this to boast (I’m now catching up with the rest of you and joining the 21st century!)  I’m telling you this because it is the easiest way I know to feel incompetent, stupid and incapable.  I could understand the handbook if I knew what all the technical words meant.  A few false starts and jamming up the machinery, I think I’ve got there now.

My feelings of incompetency were lifted when I spoke to two individual men.  One was staying on his own at a friends house for three days and was not able to use the TV because he couldn’t work it out.  And the other says he hasn’t used his TV for six months, because he too can’t make it work.  So maybe I’m not too bad.
