Have you ever seen a really dumb instructions, signs or warnings? Ones that make you wonder who the goofballs were who wrote that stuff. smilewinkgrin

Things like on a bottle of shampoo. The directions say "Shampoo, Rinse, Repeat". You could spend the rest of your life in there if you followed those directions exactly! tongue

Or what about the sign on a restaurant door that says "No dogs allowed except for seeing eye dogs". Is the DOG supposed to read that sign?

Did you ever buy new software and the guarantee was sealed inside a plastic bag with the item you purchased. When you read the guarantee is says, once you open this you may not return it! smilewinkgrin

Here's a classic. On packaging for a clothes iron: 'Do not iron clothes on body'.

What is your favorite one that you've either seen or read?

oh my.... the one that reall kills me is when you drive up to the bank teller window or McDonalds and there is a brail pad for the DRIVER of the CAR to use so they can get money out of the ATM or order their hamburger..... Please tell me if I"m missing something..... What is a blind person that needs the use of brail doing Driving a Car.... I don't want to be on the road with this person any more than I would want to be on the road with my 88 year old grandmother.

Let's see...on my hair dryer 'Not to be used in the shower or while bathing'.  On a package of Twinkies 'cellophane wrapper not for consumption'.  Television commercial...A car going about 200 miles an hour that flies through the air over an open draw bridge with the warning:  Stunt driver and not be tried at home...no duh.  A bakers rack I bought with a picture on the box of all kinds of items like cook books and canisters on the shelves...'Items shown in picture are not inclulded.'  Really???  That huge, ceramic flour canister isn't squashed into this skinny box???  Well, I'm taking this thing back!

And of course the warning on many spray cans ....'point nozzle away from face' yet somewhow I manage to blast myself anyway. yeah


 P.S.  My fav....if you take Viagra and suddenly lose your hearing and or vision, contact your doctor immediately.  Huh?  Come on...is that serious???

Reach out and touch someone. If they don't touch you back it's because you still have brownie batter on your face.

Funny, funny, funnny!

They were selling area rugs at a department store. The 8x10 rugs were rolled up and sealed with a photo on front so you couuld see the pattern and color.

The photo was a picture of a living room with the rug anchoring the furniture.On the photo was written...Furniture not included turn Did I really think when the rug was

unrolled that a sofa, loveseat, coffee table, two end tables and lamps would be there?

Hugs, Robin
