Yesterday, the Bluetooth earpiece I had ordered arrived. The purpose is to have both hands free when I'm talking on my cell phone. You know the drill otherwise: someone says, “Check out this website,” and you're stuck trying to type in the URL with one hand because you can't hold a cell phone by your shoulder without losing the call.
Having never hooked up a Bluetooth device, I needed to read the instructions. This is what I was confronted with:
Huh? And that image is true to size. And it's not my old eyes - a 17-year-old couldn't read that font.
It's a minor annoyance and I solved it with a scan and font increase in paint.net. However, no one should be required to do that to read a couple of pages and it makes me angry that I've given money to a company that makes no effort to meet such an obvious customer requirement. But too late now.
Mostly, however, this is to tell you that I'm taking today off from blogging. Two friends are having a terrific summer adventure motorcycling from New York City to the west coast and back with their beautiful, black Labrador, Rufus, riding in his own attached car. They arrived here a couple of days ago, we had a wonderful visit, but I'm a little tired and need to rest.
I'll be back tomorrow. See you then.
