Hello all! This is just for fun as I seem to find the most ridiculous statements on instructions, products etc. as I'm sure you have as well, so
please share some of your findings.
I have somewhat of an obsession for reading instructions, warnings etc. on products just to see what stupidity I can find.
I recently purchased an orbital buffer from Walmart in order to make waxing the cars a bit easier. It is a nice little hand held job that came in a
box approximately nine inches by eight inches. The cord, approximately nine inches long. While perusing the instructions I came across this
statement: "If you use an extension cord.........."
WHAT? "If?" How else would you wax a car with a buffer that only has a nine inch cord???
Also, on the lid of my plastic garbage bin it states, "No Hot Ashes." REALLY?? Now, it doesn't bother me that it is there, rather that they HAD
to put it there!
