Competent Supervision

The other day I was examining the "Caution" writing on the floaties that Boogers uses in the pool. At first glance it was all the same stuff...don't leave your kid unattended, these are not lifesaving devices, blah, blah, blah. Yeah we get the drill. But then I looked closer.


Anyone know what withints means? or cupervision? or what a chld is? I love how they also made wornonupper and andunder one word. I'm not sure whoever made these was under competent supervision...or is is cupervision?

Oh lol. That is too funny. It is almost like the person was drunk--slurring the words and well "talking" nonsense. withints?????????? within toe shot? You know like within ear shot but toe shot meaning that their toes can touch the bottom and their head is still out of water. (you know I am totally making this up right?)

We went camping last week and bought a River Rat intertube that said the same thing. I guess adult supervision isn't enough. Allthough, I bet there are adults who thin their kids won't drown if they have a floatie toy.

Made in China, right?!

Julie, I'm convinced they are but it doesn't say so on the floatie. I did buy them at Voldemart so that's pretty much a dead give-a-way...

That is too funny!! I am going to have to go read all of our inflatable toys now...

Cheryl said...

Ha! That's too funny, and I agree --it must be Made in China. :)

That is so funny, I never pay attention to warning lables. Maybe I should start!

Where's a quality inspector when you need them? I am personally very grateful when little things like this slip by--how much fun would life be if we didn't have something to mock?

Hello! I just popped over from Dandilion Momma. I think the writer of that caution was not in his/her depth.
