I bought a cheap pedometer at a garage sale once. The instructions included this quote: "Do not use in the tricky condition." ???

LOL! I have seen sOMe of these before - but not all of them. It's CRAZY what they will put on instructions!

Mr. Gattino and your friend are both in my prayers Gattina... I hope his surgery goes smoothly and he heals quickly -- and I hope her treatment is all that is needed! This is not Ilona is it?

Alice Audrey said...

LOL. The scary thing is that I have, on occasion, needed instructions like these.

Hi Gattina...
Where did you find Thursday Thirteen to sign up again? I miss playing this. Did someone else take over the meme?

These are truly funny.

Dr.John said...

Good advice but sometimes you just have to iron clothes while your wearing them.

The Bumbles said...

I have actually read that peanut package while bored on a plane flight!

You know those are on there because some idiot was stupid enough to try or ask those things.

I get a kick out of the "things you cannot claim" list in the IRS instruction booklet - all those things people tried to claim as deductions on their taxes because there was a loophole - like pet cats for example!!!

Pamela said...

I guess there are just a lot of idiots running around out here in the world that need those warnings.

Vlado&Toni said...

whoever thought of those instructions! but i think i really saw something about that packet of peanuts..

It looks for me these instructions are written for non litterates
