There Wasn’t a Warning Label

We all have those little moments where we re-learn something we already knew. You know, those moments that make you check to see if there were any witnesses. I give you this list of helpful hints. Think of it like those warning labels that tell you not to eat the drying pellets that come in electronic packages- even if you already know not to eat them, it’s still good advice.

1. The car doesn’t start if you haphazardly toss the keys in the passenger seat when you get in.

2. Don’t lean against the water dispenser on a refrigerator.

3. Elevators don’t stop on your floor unless you’ve pressed the button for said floor.

4. A rice cooker will not cook dry rice. You must add water.

5. Your head goes through the neck hole on your shirt, not the arm hole.

6. It is far easier to exit a vehicle if you first unbuckle your seatbelt.

7. You can’t put a CD in a CD-player that is already occupied.

8. A cell phone will not dial a number until you hit the “send” button, hence the silence on the other end.

9. The clothes washer works best when you push the start button.

10. So does the dryer.
