This week’s BTT question is Manual Labor Redux
Following up last week’™s question about reading writing/grammar guides, this week, we’™re expanding the question’¦.
Scenario: You’™ve just bought some complicated gadget home . . . do you read the accompanying documentation? Or not?
Do you ever read manuals?
Anything at all?
I don’t like manuals, usually I can’t understand them anyway. I haven’t read the ones for my phone or camera and I just use them – or I ask my husband, who also never, ever reads instructions.
I can’t think of any How-to books right now that I’ve read; years ago I tried some of the “Teach Yourself” books but they never helped me learn much.
I do like to read Self-help guides, but never do any of the things they suggest.
