If you think about all the appliances you have in your home, which ones are the most confusing? Meaning, hard to program, hard to figure out…to the point where you say, forget it, I’m done wiht this! It was just one of the stories in this morning’s segment of “A Few Things We Think You Should Know” on The Mike & Carla Morning Show!
No one wants an appliance with a million settings. Most of us just want something that can turn on . . . do its thing . . . and turn off. In an article published by SWNS, new poll asked people to think about their appliances, and pick the one that “confused them” the most. Maybe it’s one that has a bunch of buttons, lights, and modes . . . but you just stick with the one setting you know.
Evidently, we want everything to be very easy, simple that we can operate without even reading the operation manual! In fact, 47 per cent only occasionally familiarize themselves with the instructions of a new gadget. How hard can this be? We’ve all operated this or that…when in doubt, just start hitting buttons and if it gets to be too much, just unplug the thing right?
Although we know this study was done in the UK, we here in the U.S. can feel the pressure of getting a new appliance. Working with something outside our comfort zone that if operated correctly could make our lives so much better!
Akin Garzanli, from at Arçelik, the parent company of Beko which commissioned the research, said: “Our data has revealed striking insight into attitudes and habits within households in the UK, showing that while energy efficiency is a key priority for many there is a discrepancy in how appliances are actually used in the home.”
We do know that most women are more incline to read the operator’s manual as oppose to men…nothing factual, just makes sense. Guys don’t have time like that to waste…actually read something that will make operating a new appliance easier? Don’t need to, I see the picture on the box and the buttons are labeled…how hard can it be?
