Web Secret 466: Upwork
Most people out there can't write for s**t.
And that includes:
Boomers with PhDs
Millenials of any sort
Real estate brokers
And there's more...
It's a disease that has reached pandemic proportions.
Have you ever tried to read a product manual?
Case in point, yesterday I tried to change the water filter in my Miele refrigerator/freezer for the first time.
I read the manual and I still I could not remotely ascertain where to find the location of the filter.
I called Miele customer support (MCS).
Me: "uh, it says the filter is located in the freezer compartment, but I don't see it."
CS: chuckle "Oh, it's actually under the freezer compartment."
CS: "You can only see it if you open the freezer compartment, get on your knees, and look under."
How about spelling that out in the manual, accompanied by some helpful diagrams?
Come to think of it, they need to improve origami instructions. I'm cool until I get to about step 5 - then I'm lost. How did they get from step 4 to step 5?
But I digress.
