Frequently, I've had occasion to read the long, complicated instructions and warnings that accompany medications, chemicals, cleaning products and even mechanical items requiring assembly. Okay, okay...I get it. There are risks, especially in the case of medications and chemical type concoctions. Someone could get hurt for reasons that never entered their minds until they read the all important package insert, assuming they actually did that before they got a rash, burning sensation or ate the small pieces they needed to complete assembly of some household item.
The advertisement placement above gave me pause.
After grabbing my shopping cart at the "Major Retail Store," the Cherdo germ-o-creepy warning system went off and my phobic rejection of human germs kicked in to tell me that unattended cart bound children had most definitely chewed on the handy dandy shopping cart handle. Of course, I was happy to partake of the convenient sanitation wipes....whaaaa?? I stopped and looked at the advertisement about the wipes.
Everything about this sign made me think it was referring to the wipes in the blue container - at first glance. The note below that advised me I could find this "dental wipe" near the dental floss just made me look around the sign to see where they stuck dental floss.
Four or five things on my shopping list (that I really needed!) were forgotten as I wandered the store distracted by the thought that I would turn the corner and see Jimmy Joe Juggs* cleaning his dentures in the aisle with one of the shopping cart wipes. Truthfully, everyone that had a shiny smile caused me to sniff the air around them for a telltale lemon plus rubbing alcohol scent.
Yeah; I'm weird. It's exhausting being me. Somebody has to worry about this stuff.
[*If you're name IS Jimmy Joe Juggs, and you DO clean your dentures in the "Major Retail Store" with the cart handle wipes, this is just a coincidental post. I meant the fictional, non-slanderous dental scrubbin' Jimmy Joe Juggs, of course. I just like alliteration.]
