Why Do We Press Harder On The Buttons Of A Remote When We Know The Batteries Are Dead?

My Reasons:

1. SOMETIMES It still works

2. I'm too lazy to put new batteries in it.

Update:

Phil J you always make my night

    IT's called frustration. Knowing that the next step is actually getting up, and finding batteries, AND having to manually turn the volume up/down, and/or the channel. It's frustrating. We PAY to have a Remote so we don't have to move. When that plan goes awry, we "Press" HARD.

    I just get really mad, and I don't feel like getting new batteries. It works even better if you throw it at the wall.

    Omgosh they didn't report Phil J! :D

    1. Getting angry at the control for not working

    2. I usually take them out & put them back in so i don't have to put new batteries in it, it usually works :]

    Wishful thinking. Like opening an empty fridge every five minutes when you're hungry.
