Woould it kill them to get an editor? by mrsteabag on 24 June 2009 7:18pm
 
So...need to change my workout routine. I get a stability ball to exercise with. Ok. Can't blow it up. I tried with the enclosed foot pump. So did Mr. Teabag. After several tries with the compressor (the type used to power nail guns), he returned it to the store. The directions didn't mention that one had to pull the plug from the valve. There was another piec of plastic that looked like a plug in the little packet with the accesories.The store personnel inflated the ball. End of story. I hope. But would it have killed them to have had someone freaking prooofread the instuctions?

You mean the instructions which were written in Cantonese, translated to Japanese, then to Spanish, then to English, by someone who speaks English as a second language?

You forgot colloquial Pashto.

Speaking of missing/funny instructions, the reverse cycle heater in our lounge has a sticker on the bottom which reads:
"DON'T REACH YOUR FINGER INTO AIR-OUT WINDOW".

Ok then. I won't.
