There are licence agreements, disclaimers, waivers, and other such crap that exists because there are lawyers, who later become judges. I get that and I don’t know of a solution for it, that’s not what this post is about.
It’s about this, which I just received in the mail from Enbridge (from a flyer about carbon monoxide):
If anyone in your house has symptoms of CO poisoning (similar to the flu without the fever), get outside immediately and call 911.
Seriously? Really? What the fuck is wrong with you people?
First of all – noone knows what the hell flu symptoms are. It’s something resembling a bad cold. Which EVERYONE has for many days every year.
Secondly – have they thought this through, at all? “Go outside”, and “call 911”? Every time? Or just until I get arrested? Or until I get sent to a psychiatric institution?
Fuck man, are we so used to being treated like idiots that we don’t even notice it any more? Disgusting.
