Who needs instructions.....Are you sure sir ?
Posted by Anonymous on Friday, October 24, 2003 12:16 AM
A friend of mine just rang frustrated that he had just ruined his Hi-Fi, when he started "playing" with it. On the qustion what happened he said "Just lifted the back cover..... There was a small silver box with KAU-Tion.... (his english are not existent but who i am to laugh for DO NOT DISASSEMBLE.
On my suprise he said." I forced the cover played with the wiring, put back all....(exept a couple of odd screws that could not figure out how he left them spare!!!), turned it on and went with a flash and a bang".....So here was the killer question.
"Why me?.....What did the box say anyway......"ps the greek instruction clearly stated that this should not be tried or the guarantee would be void. Nowdays they have the "chastity belt" on certain components and they do know the idiot.

I work in IT, and there are an awful lot of people in this business who are very highly paid but clueless.

Like the guy who walked into a machine room, ripped the processors out of a server, while running, wandered next door and jammed them into a new box. Only he didn't do it properly and blew up 10Ks worth of server running a production service for the retailer I work for.

This guy is MCSE qualified, but obviously flunked Common Sence O level.

As modellers we're used following instructions, shame no one else is!!!!!

It's just amazing how some people, even those who are degree qualified, can manage to avoid getting hit by a bus every morning on their way to work. Makes the mind boggle.
I worked with a woman (a marketing manager) who was responsible for running a HUGE company marketing division (we're talking multi-million dollar turnover per week) and she had absolutely no clue. The company was a success in spite of her.
Help brain hurts

Instructions??? Is that what the folded piece of paper is in every kit I open?
I always wondered.

Instruction! You don't need no stinking instructions. They will just confuse you. And if you have parts left over at the end, don't worry. They always give you extra parts. At least that's what my dad said after assembling my first bicycle. So it must be true.
