We gave a hair “straightener” to my daughter for Christmas. This is a tag that is (was) attached to the cord. I don’t us it myself but it’s in the same drawer as my brush and it has bugged me EVERY SINGLE DAY since we got it! (Yes, I DO brush my hair on a daily basis)
Can we talk?!
I need some answers, some relief from this nightmare.
So…here are just a few of the things I think about while I comb my few graying hairs.
Question #1- So, should this be read, “Eye contact warning for straightening iron in Canada—Not for household use” or “Eye contact warning for straightening iron. In Canada-not for household use”?
(My grammar corrector in Microsoft Word says it is the first one that is correct.)
Is Microsoft made in Canada?
Question #2- Is Canada more concerned about eye contact or household use?
Question #3-Does this mean that in Canada if you don’t use it in your house you can have eye contact with the product?
Question #4-Or, does this mean that if you use it in the house you are not allowed to make eye contact?
Question #5-Does Canada CARE more about its citizens than all the other nations that this product is sold in or does it think its citizens are more STUPID than the people in other nations and therefore paid extra to the manufacturer to have the word “Canada” added?
Question #6-If I live in America and use this iron in the house, and make eye contact with it…does that mean it WILL burn my eye or just COULD if it wanted to. And if it WANTED to—WOULD it just burn my left eye—like in the picture?
Question #7-Do people in Canada only have a left eye? Or did they do a survey of hospitals and found that the left eye got burned 51% more often than the right?
And to these brain freezing puzzlements—I add my one observation—
If I couldn’t read English or French and had to rely on the picture for instructions, I think I would come up with something more along the lines of---
NO STEAMING YOUR LEFT EYE WITH THE EVIL HAIR STRAIGHTENING MONSTER.
But that’s just me.
I would LOVE to hear your answers and comments ----
End the madness!!!!!!
P.S.--This is my 90th post!! Just 10 more to go!!
