What Percentage of People Find Their Remote in the Couch?

There are a few indisputable facts of life: The toast will always fall buttered-side down. Your grocery line will always move the slowest. And of course, you will lose the TV remote if it's not bolted down. And where do you end up finding it? "The couch" is the most cliche answer, but Logitech sought out to discover once and for all where most people lose their living room remote controls.

It's 49 Percent!

Peripheral-device manufacturer Logitech surveyed thousands of people around the world to find out where they've found their lost remotes. The answers were mostly predictable, with a few surprises thrown in:

  • 49% found the remote in the couch
  • 8% found it in the bathroom
  • 8% in a dresser drawer
  • 4% in the fridge/freezer
  • 2% have found the remote outside or all the way out in the car

The freezer? Really? And the car? How do you get that far out into the driveway with your remote?

We've lost our remote in the sofa cushions more times than we can count, but our lost remotes are mostly found in the kitchen. When we get up to grab a mid-commercial snack, we always seem to grab the remote control with us.

How about you? Where do you lose the remote? Tell us in the comments!
