Have you ever looked at the packaging on some products? Open up a box and read the beginning of the instructions booklet and take a look at all the silly instructions. You know, say you just bought an iron. The instruction booklet says at the front not to use it while in the bathtub. I believe the same instructions can be found for curling irons and hair dryers and I wouldn’t be surprised if toasters had a similar warning.
You’ve got to figure that the product liability attorney for some of these companies must be wracking his or her brain thinking of all the really dumb ways that someone might use a product or state that they used a product in such and such a way just to claim an injury in order to sue the company.
That’s what these crazy warnings are all about right? Someones done something really stupid with an appliance and then sue the company for their stupidity. That’s why they have to write out those warnings.
What are some of the funnier warnings you’ve seen for appliances or other products?
