I almost never read directions to anything. Because really how many ways are there to plug in a toaster and when it comes to IKEA furniture, no matter how closely I follow their esoteric pictograms I always end up with the shelf I assumed I would always have, plus three screws and piece of rather structural looking wood. I think all this stems from a childhood of playing with lego’s and never once actually making the thing on the box as creating hybrid Frankestein cars was WAY to much fun.
But bored to outer limits of my mind whilst waiting for my coffee to percolate (WHAT AN AWESOME WORD) this morning I read the directions that accompanied my boss’s new clock.
I’m worried that we live in a world where flagging this up is a necessity.
