Consumer Warnings!

Here are some actual consumer warnings I've encountered, ENJOY!!!!!!!

On a Sear's hairdryer:....Do not use while sleeping.
(Darn, and that's the only time I have to work on my hair.)

On a bag of Fritos:...You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside.
(The shoplifter special?)

On a bar of Dial soap: "Directions: Use like regular soap."
(And that would be how???....)

On some Swanson frozen dinners: "Serving suggestion: Defrost! ."
(But, it's *just* a suggestion.)

On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom): "Do not turn upside down."
(Well...duh - a bit late, huh!)

On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding: "Product will be hot after heating."
(...And you thought????...)

On packaging for a Rowenta iron: "Do not iron clothes on body."
(But wouldn't this save me more time?)

On Boot's Children Cough Medicine: "Do not drive a car or operate machinery after taking this medication."
(We could do a lot to reduce the rate of construction accidents if we could just get those 5-year-olds with head-colds off those forklifts.)

On Nytol Sleep Aid: "Warning: May cause drowsiness."
(And...I'm taking this because???....)

On most brands of Christmas lights: "For indoor or outdoor use only."
(As opposed to...what?)

On a Japanese food processor: "Not to be used for the other use."
(Now - somebody out there, help me on this. I'm a bit curious.)

On Sainsbury's peanuts: "Warning: contains nuts."
(Talk about a news flash.)

On an American Airlines packet of nuts:"Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts."
(Step 3: maybe, uh...fly Delta?)

On a child's superman costume: "Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly."
(I don't blame the company. I blame the parents for this one.)

On a Swedish chainsaw: "Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands or genitals."
(Oh my God...was there a lot of this happening somewhere? I would prefer to stop mine with a few whole individuals my self....no names Doc (wink)).

Hope it made u smile.

Words Women Use!

Men beware...WORDS only WOMEN know how to USE! :-)

"FINE." This is the word women use to end an argument when they feel they are right and you need to shut up. Never use "fine" to describe how a woman looks; this will cause you to have one of those arguments.

"FIVE MINUTES." This is half an hour. It is equivalent to the five minutes that your football game is going to last before you take out the trash, so it's an even trade.

"NOTHING" This means "something," and you should be on your toes. "Nothing" is usually used to describe the feeling a woman has of wanting to turn you inside out, upside down, and backwards. "Nothing" usually signifies an argument that will last "Five Minutes" and end with "Fine."

"GO AHEAD" (With Raised Eyebrows). This is a dare. One that will result in a woman getting upset over "Nothing" and will end with the word "Fine."

"GO AHEAD" (Normal Eyebrows). This means "I give up" or "do what you want because I don't care". You will get a "Raised Eyebrow Go Ahead" in just a few minutes, followed by "Nothing" and "Fine" and she will talk to you in about "Five Minutes" when she cools off.

"GO AHEAD" (With Lowered Eyebrows). At some point in the near future, you are going to be in some mighty big trouble.

*LOUD SIGH!* This is not actually a word, but is a nonverbal statement often misunderstood by men. A *Loud Sigh* means she thinks you are an idiot at that moment, and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you over "Nothing."

*SOFT SIGH.* Again, not a word, but a nonverbal statement. *Soft Sighs* mean that she is content. Your best bet is to not move or breathe, and she will stay content.

"THAT'S OKAY." This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can make to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before paying you back for whatever it is that you have done. "That's Okay" is often used with the word "Fine" and in conjunction with a "Raised Eyebrow."

"PLEASE DO." This is not a statement, it is an offer. A woman is giving you the chance to come up with whatever excuse or reason you have for doing whatever it is that you have done. You have a fair chance with the truth, so be careful and you shouldn't get a "That's Okay."

"THANKS." A woman is thanking you. Do not faint. Just say, "You're welcome."

"THANKS A LOT." This goes much deeper than "Thanks." A woman will say, "Thanks A Lot" when she is really ticked off at you. It signifies that you have offended her in some callous way, and will be followed by the *Loud Sigh.* Be careful not to ask what is wrong after the "Loud Sigh," as she will only tell you, "Nothing."
