Yea, I had to laugh at that one, I experienced that one while trying to start up my church's DSL. Bell South does the same thing.

T-Mobil Prepaid plan says in the commercials, no hidden fees...

 

Well when you go buy minutes, you have to CALL them to get them, so they put you on hold for 30mins waisting all you minutes for prepaid.

 

So now if I spend over 5mins on the phone with them trying to get my minutes or for customer service, I demand more minutes, for free.

This is on my DOVE deodorant:

 

Ask doctor before use if you have kidney disease. (ummmmmmm I don't get it!)

 

On Target brand antibacterial moist wipes:

 

Keep away from fire and flame. (yeah lemme put a match up to this B**ch)

 

Will try to find more random things around the house.

At a restraurant in Chicago in 1996, they had one of those towels to dry your hands on that you pull, find a dry spot and dry your hands (which I personally think are disgusting, but anyway...) But anyway, the box the towel was in said "Do not hang from towel or insert head into towel loop."

 

Good thing I was in the bathroom or I'd have peed on myself from laughing so much. I was actually laughing so hard that I didn't want to go back out into the quiet restaurant, and my mom came in to find me and see what was taking so long!

Here's a few I've caught on my PC

"You haven't done anything wrong". That's reassuring.

I think this is an Internet Explorer error message. No wonder I switched to Firefox.

The Sims games are known for their very descriptive error messages. The original simply crashed without any error message.

I often laugh when I read the information leaflets that come with over-the-counter painkillers and headache medication, which usually read along the lines of:

 

"Side effects may include headaches, nausea, stomach cramps, distorted vision, drowsiness, coma, or in extreme cases, death".

 

Why bother taking the damn things?! And are we now so flippant about death that it is merely considered a side-effect?!?!

 

Lou- "would rather just have a headache!" -ise

I found this whole list of stupid labels... (compiled entirely by user Slytherin Girl on fanfiction.net- i just thought it was funny)

~On a Sears hairdryer: Do not use while sleeping. ( 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 Sunsbury'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." (..was there a lot of this happening somewhere?)

 

I give total credit to Slytherin Girl, whoever she may be...

All right, I have a book that has some funny warnings and labels!

Here are some of them.

 

Toliet-bowl brush: Do not use orally (But my teeth have crap in them!)

 

Fireplace log: Caution-risk of fire (duh!)

 

Collapsible baby stroller: remove child before folding (No wonder it had that strange lump!)

 

13-inch-wheel wheelbarrow: Not intended for highway use (But that's the best way to go!)

 

Electric thermometer: Do not use orally after using rectally (I wonder who was the poor guy that tried that!)

 

This one takes the cake

CD Player: Warning!- Dangerous Warning Inside! (It will blow up in your face! )
