Speaking of ‘stupid’ labels, here’s a couple that I’ve noticed lately. Have you ever looked at a certain popular brand of facial tissue… which rhymes with fluffs? They actually give you step-by-step directions on how to blow your nose. Uh-huh.
I don’t know about you, but my mama taught me that quite a few years ago. I’ve passed that knowledge on to my own children. I just assumed that everyone learned such a thing as a child. Was I wrong? Or do they really think we’re not that bright?
Meanwhile, on the instructions for heating a frozen pot-pie it reads: “Remove carefully from oven — CAUTION filling may be hot.” Oh-kay. Thanks for the warning but… DUH?!
So, are we a world filled with inept, illogical and/or careless consumers? Or are manufacturers just terrified of getting sued?
Makes you wonder.
