Summerall: You should get an owner’s manual

July 19, 2013

I’ve noticed that almost everything you buy comes with a manual. Even things that shouldn’t need one, like a hair dryer. You plug it in, set it on high and flip the button that turns it on. It still comes with instructions telling you that it isn’t a good idea to use this appliance in the shower. I don’t know whether the industry is laughing at us or they really believe that people are that stupid. (If you have had a friend or relative who have succumbed to an unfortunate hair dryer related fatality, you have my condolences.)
