Do you need instructions with that hamburger?

One look at the multitude of "do not" labels on our appliances and tools is indication enough that people still don't have a firm grasp on how to use things (Like this kid). I get frustrated with some who can't use an ATM or a computer or can't figure out how to pay for their gas at the pump.

However, there was a time when the gadgets we take for granted were new and different - things like the radio, television and telephone. At one time the phone company felt it necessary to provide a "users manual" for the telephone. Importat tips about courtesy, hanging up the phone gently, and answering promptly. Perhaps we could use a reprinting?

Here's the original post.
