I thought you might like this one:

I recently installed Carefree Power Smart Visor, with a remote switch in the Alpine. They work great. Well I showed my handy work to the wife and told her they were voice activated, you say Left shade up and the left shade went up. Say Left shade down and it went down. The same type of voice commands for the right shade.

Well Donna gave the commands and they worked what she did not see was that I was holding the remote in my hand. They worked fine as long as I was inside with her, but they did not work when she was in the Alpine by herself. She was getting upset with the voice activated shades and wanted me to return them.

I showed her they worked fine for me and that it must be her and not the shades. This worked until she saw the switch in my hand.

You know the couch is not that bad for sleeping.

I'm on Donna's side. That is just mean. I hate it when people do that.

Of course, it is funny. It will be something the both of you talk about for years.

I do have voice actuated shades. Mine are programmed to "I wish that shade was down a little more" and my wife gets up and pulls it down.
