When did society get to the point that companies think they have to tell you what to do or how to feel? That we have become so stupid that we can't use common sense or past experience to prepare a damn frozen piece of food. Or that we are so "sue" happy that they feel obligated to enforce every possible circumstance imagineable to cook something for 3 or 4 minutes to cover their asses. I am going to use the following as an example of what I mean and will add my thoughts where need be. Tonight I was about to heat up a frozen dinner. Thought what the Hell maybe read the actual instructions this time. They went as follows: DO NOT PREPARE IN TOASTER OVEN (okay wasnt sure on that one)- DO NOT REUSE TRAY (wasnt actually planning to whole idea no dirty dishes)-KEEP FROZEN UNTIL READY TO USE (good to know) -COOK THOROUGHLY BEFORE EATING(well I would hope so, but to be honest used your directions and well wasnt entirley thoroughly cooked)-USE CAUTION AS PRODUCT AND PACKAGING WILL BE HOT (ummm...... Duhhhhh) MICROWAVE OVEN: The following cook preparation was developed using a 1200 watt microwave oven. Due to variations in all ovens, adjustment to cooking time may be required. ( See if I take it out and it's still cold, common sense tells me put it back in for a little longer) 1) Remove tray from outer carton;(no shit if for no other reason to see what I am about to attempt to heat and eat)pull back corner to vent.( dont know of anything that if it isnt vented in the microwave isnt going to explode to the great amusement of my kids). 2) Cook on HIGH for 4 minutes. 3) Cook on MEDIUM for 3 1/2 minutes. 4) Let stand in microwave 1-2 minutes. Enjoy!(this is the one that really got to me and started me off on this little tangent. Let me decide if I enjoyed this piece of crap or not. Do they really think that by saying that or suggesting it that I really will enjoy it? Was one of the shitiest things I have eaten of late but hey they said I have to enjoy so.....? Come on!!!!) Before reading those instructions I felt like a pretty reasonable, somewhat intelligent and secure individual. Now.... I'm not sure. What products or companies have made you feel this way? Care to share?
