ok, that's pretty funny.

when reading these labels, it really does insinuate that people must be complete idiots with no common sense whatsoever.

"do not put child in bag". "do not iron shirt while wearing".
and my fave: the gas cap that reads "do not check fuel level with an open flame or lighted match".

well, DUH!!

I remember something from many years ago. Some guy had just gotten a big settlement in a product liability suit, seems he was trimming his hedge with a power mower and somehow injured himself. My thought after seeing him and his family on tv, leaving the courtroom, was "my God, these people wear their stupidity like a badge of honor."

The problem with the world is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

We never wore helmets and we survived. Most of us anyway. And we learned valuable lessons. If I injured myself the way some of these folks do, I would be too ashamed to tell anybody. smile

"somehow injured himself"! so, now all mowers state "do not use mower to trim hedges"? since they dont say not use one to groom your pug, you have the right to do so, sue for damages, and then buy that villa on the north end?

i cant see how any mfr can foresee all the possibilities any moron can think up.

self-responsibility is a touchy issue with me.

"groom your pug"?????? Jane, that's hilarious (or would be if the mental image wasn't so ghastly)!!! And I agree . . . it seems like we're moving to a no-fault society where everything bad that happens to you is someone's else's fault, regardless of the poor choices you make or the stupid acts you commit. mad
