Thanksgiving Day, the turkey was not the only thing that was fried,
to turn our old TV on and off required plug and unplug, Bob Sighed.
5 AN Black Friday morning
we were surprised even though we had a warning
Plug/Unplug over and over shaking his head,
the ancient TV was Dead, Dead, Dead.
That day was the worse day it could be,
The Dallas Cowboy Game that was trapped in the DVR, Alas the game he could not SEE.
We needed to go to the Black Friday Sale,
Bob with his knee, was walking frail.
But the day was right, all TVs on Sale.
We pushed and pulled and tugged and cursed
Getting that giant 55-inch Samsung on the basket, was just the worst.
We stumbled around to the self-check-out we went,
bob could hardly walk; he was truly spent.
We staggered and pushed and tugged and rolled, really far
that big old TV to the back of the car
The door was up, the hole was small,
we could not lift it in at all.
Bob's words were heard, by a store employee,
how could he not hear and see?
the two old people, one with a bad knee.
He tried to help; he really did.
No matter what he did, he could not close the lid.
I said the back seat needs to be released,
ha ha ha we could not get the dog cover unleashed.
We bought the Kia in 2015
that was the last time the mechanics were seen.
No memory we had of how to fold it down
Bob was saying more than just a frown
We finally got the flat,
TV inside, door down, we thought that was that.
I pulled in the garage, we lifted that door,
we dragged that heavy TV on to the floor,
We pushed and tugged and tugged some more until we got it inside the living room door.
There sat the ancient TV, that weighed a ton more.
We dragged it to the front porch, thinking of the chair we put at the curb,
no way to get this out there, we were really disturbed.
Did I tell you the city charged us 10.86 cents?
when they lifted it and to the dump it was sent.
There is much more, but will just let you know,
It was 5 hours no less and not any more
We fought that SMART TV, and each other,
we just needed help, like from a brother.
It works really well, but what the hell,
The movies on Prime, will not zoom out
we feel like we are watching through a bunker looking out.
Next day I did call all the way to India, to Samsung Support.
He said to fix it required factory reset. What a sport.
alas the reset, put it back to default
I had to set it up again, yes, we fought.
The punch line is, we love the TV
but after all this, the movies we can still not see
except like through a bunker,
The cable remote works fine on TV,
the movies we can really well see,
Its the streaming movies will not fill the screen, OH ME
PS a lot of the five hours we spent were due to 11 years of dust and cobwebs because the old TV had not been moved in 11 years.
It was too heavy to be moved to clean, but not to heavy when the TV could not be seen.
Dust and Dirty and 6 modules of things we never use had to be disconnected. I got so choked while doing all this I had to go outside to cough until I almost threw up.
On the Good side We are thankful we had the money to get a new one,
Thankful the dust is gone for another few years
And in the FUTURE, I might be thankful for a
SMART TV that right now is smarter than me
