Earbud Instruction Manual? Yes, I’m Serious

So I stopped at lunch today to get a new pair of earbuds. I’d left mine at home and I was lucky enough to find a pair on sale for only $4.99. The concept of earbuds (headphones) is pretty straight forward so you can imagine my surprise when I opened them up and saw that they’d come with instructions:

Earbud Instructions

Operating Instructions:

  1. Insert the audio plug into your iPod / MP3 / audio source’s headphone jack.
  2. Turn the player on and set the volume at the medium level.
  3. There are 3 sizes of silicone inserts – attach the set that provides the most comfortable fit.
  4. Insert the earbuds into your ears.
  5. Press play and enjoy your music.

Good to know.

In the immortal words of George Carlin: “I did not need to be told THAT.”
