Where's the Coffee?
October 1, 2016 7:08am CST
I couldn't make this up if I tried. Yesterday, I bought a new inexpensive Mr. Coffee coffeemaker. I only just now read the user's manual, and this is what it states in the "Troubleshooting" section if "THE COFFEEMAKER ONLY BREWS WATER." POSSIBLE CAUSE: There are no coffee grounds in the filter basket. SOLUTION: ADD THE DESIRED AMOUNT OF COFFEE. This could indicate either or both of two things: The person who wrote this recommendation is moonlighting as a comedy writer. Or... There really are indeed people out there for whom this COULD be a problem... (Public Domain Image)

There are books with collections of such inane instructions. I once bought a nightgown made in the USA and found the instruction 'Don't put near open fire'. Your country people are well known for suing. So the policy of the manufacturers is obviously 'Better safe than sorry'.
