  1. Beth, you nailed it – luckily G.Stein has common sense for all of us so badly lacking in that department πŸ˜‰
    One of the β€šcraziestβ€˜ things when living in England were those amni-present yellow signs saying Slippery When Wet – they were everywhere; in front of shops, of toilets, out in the street – all fearing the next Taking to Court….. NO COMMON SENSE whatsoever πŸ˜‰

  2. Don’t you just love it when your food is condensing to you!?! “Food will be hot”; “Plastic bag is not a toy”; “Remove from paper container before placing in oven or on grill.”

  3. Uh-huh….uh-huh…. Now try telling people not to eat cookie dough before baking. Good luck with that! πŸ™‚

    Me: You shouldn’t eat raw cookie dough. It has eggs in it. It’s not safe.
    My wife: Yeah, and you shouldn’t eat gas station hot dogs. You don’t know what is in them or how old they really are.
    Me. Touche’.

  4. True story: Just a few minutes ago I microwaved my lunch and bit into the chicken nugget only to realize, mid-bite, that it wasn’t a pre-cooked chicken nugget and that I was thus eating chicken sushi. So you see? These instructions really are necessary for some of us. πŸ™‚

    Yes I so agree! … and if they don’t get instructions they blame you for getting it wrong…”oh I haven’t been told” is the answer. Thinking is going out of fashion!
