Chinese assembly torture

Post by BooTEE74 » 08 Jul 2018, 18:08

I sized up the box..i’d Have it together in 3 hours tops.
6 times I assembled it and took it apart..alas! 23 extra pieces
I had used up all my smarts
Those instructions were harder to understand than the book of
Daniel
Screw that fractured English manual!
Later that day, the cops came and took me away..and then a
Therapist, dr. Wong shows up with my half finished
Project and sez........
I’ll never get out unless the assembly is correct.

Oh, my!! This does sound like torture! :lol:

I appreciate the description of a frustrated attempt at assembling something from overseas. Our joke is that you ALWAYS have parts left over.

This is a fun poem. Nice work. (And I like that the therapist is named Dr. Wong.)

Keep writing! :escribir:
