It's in the Fine Print!
Thematic 10Q Easy
"I bought a packet of peanuts once, and was relieved to have seen the warning "May contain nuts" on the packet before I ate them. Phew, glad I saw that before the anaphylactic shock set in. Here are some potentially life-saving 'fine print' tips!"
15 Points Per Correct Answer - No time limit
During my first purchase of the day, another potentially fatal error was averted by reading the fine print of a 'Rowenta' iron that I wanted. Learning from my peanut experience, I made sure I read the fine print first. How right I was to do so. What advice did it give me that prevented me from suffering third degree burns?
"May contain nuts"
"Always iron clothes inside-out"
"Do not iron clothes on body"
"Iron clothes when damp"
Deciding that I'd be rather good at DIY, I then bought a 'Carpenters' drill. The fine print was a bit of a 'mouthful', but what did it tell me, that sadly meant the drill didn't have the dual purpose I thought it would?
"This product only to be used by adults"
"This product not intended for use as a dental drill"
"This product only to be used by children"
"This product is not for people with nut allergies"
Fortunately, a quick glance at the fine print on my next purchase saved a trip to the Emergency Room. It said "Keep out of children". What product sensibly included this 'sharp' piece of advice?
Reese's Peanut butter Cup
Cuddly teddy bear
Korean Kitchen Knife
Packet of Wonton Noodles
I'm a bit of a clean freak, so I was disappointed to find "Not dishwasher-safe" on my next purchase. It was a good job I read the fine print first, or without this item I would have to keep getting up and down from the couch. What was this item that will have to remain unclean?
RCA Television Remote Control
Oneida Prescott Silverware
Wedgewood China Plate
With all this worrying fine print, I anticipated a few bad night's sleep ahead. So I bought a bottle of Nytol Sleep Aid. I wouldn't have taken it if I'd have read the warning first. What was it?
"May cause drowsiness"
"Don't take on empty stomach"
"Don't take with other sleeping aids"
"Sleep Aid does not mix well with nuts and other legumes"
In the supermarket 'Tesco' in the UK, I bought a pot of the yummy dessert, 'Tiramisu'. The ever helpful fine print read: "Do not turn upside-down". That all seemed sensible enough. But what factor rendered the warning rather ironic, and totally useless?
The print was too small to read
It was printed on the bottom of the pot
The print was covered by the price tag
There was a glob of peanut butter smeared over my pot so I couldn't see it
As it's December, I next went off to buy some Christmas lights. What is the fine print written on the boxes of many Christmas Lights?
"Do not iron"
"Contains traces of nuts"
"Not for grandparents"
"For indoor or outdoor use only"
My next purchase was a Sears hairdryer. Reluctantly I read that fine print, and with a sigh, realized that I obviously won't be able to use it once I've taken my Nytol Sleep Aid. What was the warning?
"Please - no one mention peanuts again!"
"Use with a friend"
"Do not use while sleeping"
"Do not eat"
Getting a bit fed up with the dire warnings and unforeseen dangers now. I'm going home. On the way out of the mall, I think that my luck is finally turning when I spot a bag of 'Fritos' chips with "You could be a winner - no purchase necessary!" written on the front! Ah, but now I know better than not to read the fine print first. I'm no chump. And, yep, indeed there is a downside that makes the "No purchase necessary" part, a bit of a lie. What is it?
You have to participate in a reality TV nut-eating contest to win
The chips are not allowed to be eaten if you want to win
No purchase necessary, but competition details are INSIDE the bag of chips
There was no downside - I finally bought something without a hidden death threat
After a day of such perilous near-misses, I head to my bed, hungry, because I'd forgotten to buy any dinner. So you can imagine my disappointment when I spotted the dreaded fine print on the mattress label. What was it?
"Do not swallow"
"Do not use sharp knives near mattress"
"Do not lie on mattress with shoes on"
"Do not lie on mattress with Charles Schultz"
