Today our photocopier broke.
That happens at least once a day.
While I was waiting for it to cool down, I took some of the bad copies it made and threw them in the shredder.
What? You don’t do silly, kid-like things when you are frustrated.
So, as I’m standing there listening to the paper being made into little strips, I notice the pictures underneath the slot. I guess these are supposed to be universal directions as there aren’t words, just pictures (sort of like putting Ikea furniture together)…I digress.
See, little directions, or maybe warnings.
As I’m standing there, I look away, and then my brain registers what I just saw on the end.
Second to the last?
No babies without clothes but in diapers should go into the shredder?
Does that mean clothed babies are okay? Well, I guess as long as they don’t have on gloves, a tie or a ponytail in, they are okay (at least according to the pictures).
You know the sad thing is that somebody likely did that first**, before they added the warning. Because who seriously thinks to put a picture of baby as a “no” for a paper shredder?
*crappy pictures taken with my crappy cell phone.
** ETA: I think and hope that this label is really a poor choice for something that means kids shouldn’t use it, and certainly doesn’t mean that they think people would put a baby in a paper shredder…because that isn’t funny and ruins the humorous spirit of my post.
