There was something else I was going to say, but dammit if I can remember. I thought about it while I was slaughtering, and it seemed funny or interesting or something like that.
Nope. Still gone. Oh well.
Not gone any more.
I looked beside me on our new sofa and saw what it was I was going to write about.
The stove we bought came with a base that we can put the stove on if we wish. We didn’t, but we still got the base and the accompanying instructions anyway.
What’s so interesting about it is the horribly butchered English. What follows are the actual instructions, spelling as is:
INSTRUCTION TO ARM THE BASEBOARD OF THE RANGES OF 4 OR 6 BURNERS
Before being intalled the range the basebord in the way it should be armed that follows:
1-Unpack the range;
*To take out and open the bag of pieces that is inside the oven or warmer compartment;
*For the kitchen of 6 burners, is owed to remove the wooden base too;
2-To put the range for one of their lateral ones, on a soft and not abrasive surface;
To remove the screws and nuts of 3/16" and the plastic screws that are fixed in the inferior base of the range to relocate them in the assembly of the baseboard.
ATTENTION: for that operation it is important to use gloves to protect the hands.
3-Assembly a square with two pieces "B" and two pieces "C", to fix them with 08 screws; 04 screws and nuts 3/16"; and 04 plastic screws, as figure 3.
4-Attach the square in the kitchen, using 4 screws and nuts 3/16" as figure.
What the . . . ?
I’m not even kidding. Seriously.
The only good thing is that their diagrams make sense.
