Reading Labels for FUN!

Monday, August 25, 2014

I'm often amazed by American warning labels and/or instructions.

Just this morning I bought a new curling iron and was amazed to find a tag on it WARNING that a hot iron could burn someone and I shouldn't let children touch it. Who knew?

Also, my chewy Rolaids have instructions notifying me to chew AND swallow each one. Can't be chewing those up and spitting them out. I'm underwhelmed, lol.

A bright spot in my day, lol.

    Right up my humour alley, Karen.
    My sleeping pills say: "May cause drowsiness." Well! I HOPE so!!!
    Thanks for the smiles.

    I love the ones on food, such as peanut butter, where they tell you that it may contain peanuts. emoticon I hope so. If not, I'm worried about what it does contain.

    It's funny but it's sad at the same time!

    When you live in a litigious society, that's what happens.

    I once got a curling iron with the instruction "do not use while sleeping", LOL1

    And I have to laugh at the instructions on my pills that are prescription: Take by mouth.

    The labels are funny but the crazy American tort system is not. Common sense and personal responsibility have been executed in the courtroom. A man sued his bicycle manufacturer because the bike didn't come with a warning not to use after dark without lights, after he was injured doing just that. There are whole websites dedicated to the stupidest lawsuits currently pending. One woman is suing a store where she was injured by stuff knocked over by a kid running crazy through the aisles...it was her own kid.
