I spent 5 minutes looking at the installation instructions of my new windshield wipers... I didn't get it. So I did what Stuntman would do and just took off the old ones and slipped on the new ones. No problem, no instructions needed.

Then I needed to install new car seats for the E's. The instructions made no sense. I installed them by instinct, no problem. I did review the car seat instructions afterward to make sure that I did it right, and I had. The instructions made sense after I had actually done it.

Now, neither of us read the instructions.

I found that reading instructions avoids a couple things, me having to call the manufacturer and ordering new parts and me finding out that I just voided said warranty....

I think about age 34 I began reading instructions, I got tired of calling the manufacturer....

Good luck to you and stuntman on that! :D

I am an instruction reader, all the way! I don't want to break it. (which what would happen if i did not read them)

I've always been a firm subscriber to that ol' saw that goes "...when all else fails, read the manual."

That, and/or "get a bigger hammer."

Car seat installation makes me want to drink... a lot! And, I'm not much for drinking. LOL Luckily, we are associated with lots of law enforcement and firefighter types who are trained to install them correctly. It's a nice way to reconnect with friends and a good way to ensure the car seats are A-Ok. :)

oh car seats. i'm afraid to take them out of the car when flyboy is gone, I know I wont get them back in 100% the way they should be.

why is something so safe such a pain in the rear?
