Like many bloggers, I track my posts through an RSS feeder to ensure the feed is actually working. On Sunday, I spent 5 hours assembling our new grill. And, during that time decided it would be a good idea to do a little audio blogging. But each audio post sucked more than the previous one so I hit delete. Or so I thought.
Imagine my surprise when those feeds showed up in my Google reader.
Ugh. Apparently, if you’re using Utterz for audio posting it just assumes you want it to update their site and mine.
I’ll track this up to a new technology gotcha. It wasn’t that I said anything wrong; it’s that the posts weren’t that good.
What did I say, in case you missed it?
Essentially, there’s a special level of hell reserved for the people who design grills and toys that need assembled. This level shares space with the people who write the directions for the assembly.
Ahhh yes the joy of putting together a Grill. And yes they use the same theory for childrens toys trust me!! Maybe they should hire the people who do the Ikea stuff!!!
Similar to Marketing ideas vs production ability!!!
Wait until the first time you open a children’s toy that uses the weird clear twist ties that bind them to the box. No one will ever convince me that those things are twisted by hand.

I love the fact that I get to buy Stuart’s kids toys that need to be first unwrapped/unbound and then put together and the best part is they all make shocking noises and I get to go home afterwards and not hear them!!
I too will be in that “special level in hell” as I perpetuate the market!!
Hmm, Alissa’s Cousin brings up an interesting point – will he also join those engineers and direction-makers in the 7th level?
Or, is it more likely – given recent engagements that one day those loud toys will arrive at his house?
Al if and when that happens Alissa’s Cousin will be dished out with a major payback on the fantastic an wonderous toy he has supplied Tori over the years!!! :)
