Rayman Can’t Understand the Instructions, Heck, He Can’t Even See the Instructions

I get upset when I purchase an item and can’t read the instructions. Either the print is too small, the directions are vague, or on my last purchase, the directions were in pictures. Often times, there are little if any instructions period. My favorite is Apple. Buy an apple product and you’re pretty much on your own, as if part of the fun is learning on your own how to operate it without any¬† instructions.

Steve Tanko my Kool radio buddy and I were discussing ironing (of all things) last week. Steve turned me on to the Rowenta iron, which I bought. Problem is, I don’t know how to run the doggone thing. The directions are in pictures, not words. I can’t figure out how to shut it off, the settings aren’t numbered, and the steam setting is beyond me.

Did you ever buy a watch and try to set the day, month, year, and time? Here’s my advice, next time you buy something, buy a magnifying glass to go with it. If you still can’t figure out how to make your gizmodo operate, just give it to your kid for 2 minutes. They can figure out anything.
