  • Mood:
I am nuking Pad Thai for dinner. Reading the instructions on the box, I observed:

"Product may still be frozen in middle"

And I thought, 'product'... what a silly choice of words.

And then I had a sudden vision of the poor person who had to write those instructions, trying desperately to come up with an appropriate descriptive word for pad thai that wasn't pad thai ('cause I bet there was a mean supervisor involved who didn't want the actual name used in the directions).

And now I feel rather sympathetic towards the poor instruction-writer.
