    Angry Instruction Manuals and Assembling Goods

    Why are more and more goods turning up that you have bought and when you take them out of the wrapping/box what ever you have to build parts of it? Bought a pressure washer and you have to wrap the hose onto the reel. Why does it not come out the factory like that? For what I paid I expected to get it home and start using. No, I have to build up some bits.

    Then there is the instruction manual; don't you hate these ****ing things? I know as a bloke I'm pre-programmed to hate them but they are getting rediculous now. With this pressure washer, the manual is 70+ pages. And you may think this is going to be a long read before averything is set up, but no:

    1. The manual has about 15 other langauages (not to offend foreign languages in any way here). Why not put a manual with a language appropriate to that country? Doubtless other countries get 16 languages too.

    2. A few - useless - pics (well when I say pics I mean drawings) of the components and how to assemble the ancillaries. Being completely useless as they are it's left upto male intuition to get on with assembling the wee bits and pieces.

    3. As per point 2 - useless pics about assembly but spends 2 pages for every language explaining why it you shouldn't aim the washer nozzle at the unit itself and why you shouldn't use it with a broken mains cable and my favourite - why you shouldn't use it outside in the rain. stumbling block for me there.

    I don't get why the human race has to make life so complicated. Really baffles and irritates me.

    Rant over.

    Got to agree on the multi language instructions. I just let Wendy loose on it, if she can't asssemble it and get it running, then I read the instructions.
