Have you ever thought of those poor souls who dedicate their lives to detailing instructions or disclaimers on packaging? Their greatest writings will never be adapted for the big screen, nor will the ever will the Pulitzer. Where is their reward?
It has GOT to be in writing caution statements.
I recently purchased a package of Huggies Little Swimmers diapers, and because I feel bad for technical writers, I read the package (or maybe I was just a tiny bit bored and stranded).
This is what is says:
Choking may result for anything children put into their mouths.
Like most clothing, pants can burn.
Do not expect swim pants to prevent the transmission of diseases.
Really? How do they write this stuff with a straight face?
