It’s a legit question, I believe. Every time i’m ill, every time I take a drugs box out of our medicines cabinet, it seems that I always open it on the wrong side. That’s just what you don’t want on that particular moment. You’re miserable enough.
So a ‘What’s the upside?’ arrow indication like they do on courier packages should be obliged. You could state that for educational purposes (you cannot take drugs without reading the manual), the upside always keeps the manual. First time user? Open the box from the upside. In other occasions, you would open the downside because that’s where you are. Or vice versa. Depending on what behavioral therapists and psychologists say.
I was thinking about the wayback machine and then the manual idea popped up again. After writing this post, i remembered. Check it here…
How many manuals can one collect? Every year or so I look at those three cabinets on my closet, go through all the manuals in it and throw away those I don’t need anymore.
Why isn’t there a giant database of manuals where I can pick and choose from all the manuals in the world the ones I have in my house? Sometimes I can’t find the manual online anymore… I want to be able to add a manual with purchasing date to my personal account. In a perfect world, it would be the guarantee stamp. Whenever something breaks, I have my manual with me in just a couple of clicks. Also I could get in touch with the support desk of these companies, when under guarantee, to have it fixed. The advantage for them would be that they could update their manuals in real time. There is also an app, so i can access the manual on my phone or tablet. Easy as that.
