And I suspect everyone has the same drawer of instructions.
I've several issues with this...
1) If they were just in English, they wouldn't take up so much room
2) Even if I was organised and put them in a file, in alphabetical order, they'd still be taking up space.
3) If I scan them into the computer, I'll still probably never use them and they'll take up room again.
4) If I ever need instructions, they will be the ones I threw away.
So my solution to this is an International Instruction Register. Most manufacturers do have their instructions online for people like me who periodically (read habitually) lose things, so I think all instructions should be available for download from one site that is the International Instruction Register. And I would have a kitchen drawer to play with.
What do you think?
