Now I know how Argos keep their prices down…

They hire monkeys to write the instructions that go with their products!

Check out these little gems from the instructions to the alarm clock I just bought:

  • Pull up the alarm ON/OFF switch at the back of the clock when need to alarm, whereas, to pull down.
  • Touch the snooze/light button on the face of the clock, the light will be shining.
  • When alarm, touch the snooze/light button, the alarm will stop for a while but will continue to alarm after 5 minutes, you can pull down the ON/OFF switch at the back of the clock for completely stopping alarm.

And in the section entitled “Special Remarks”, we are reminded to “Keep off the magnetic moist field and sun’s rays irradiation directly”.

Well, I’m glad they made that clear!

    I was going to say something witty but Sharon beat me to it with her remark. Best Comment Award September 2008, I’d say!

    Hope the little cherubs aren’t running you ragged yet and work’s going well. 🙂
