Do You Read Manuals Or Not?

Do you know what a user manual is?

It is a paper with a set of instructions on how to use and how to operate the gadget, the appliance and the toy. It also has information about the product where it is attached with. Without user manual, it will be not easy using and operating the product.

Have you read the manual before using the product? 

I know you are excited on the gadget, the appliance and the toy that you just bought. Your excitement might also be the reason why you don’t read the manual anymore, especially when you already had experience using the product before.

Is it necessary to read the manual?

Yes, it is necessary. Despite having knowledge on how to use or operate the product, it is recommended that you should read the manual first so that you will be familiar with the product. Reading the manual first will also update your product knowledge. You might not know that there are additional features or some adjustments on it than it last model.

Do you follow the instructions written on the manual?

I bet only few will follow diligently to the manual. Don’t worry you are not the only person who doesn’t follow the instructions written in the manual, even I does not follow the instructions. But, the risk of not following the instructions is in us and not on the product company.

Reading the manual when there’s a problem?

I guess everybody’s guilty on this. Regardless if you had read the manual or not. I know that each one of us always look on the manual and check on how to solve the problem. We are hoping that the solution to the device’s, gadget’s, appliance’s, and toy’s problem is in the user manual. Apparently, most of the products don’t have the steps on how to solve the problem of the product. Usually, they only write the contact details of the company’s customer support.
