(2003) article mentions that for installations in Garages, but no longer will be required ..

 

Reminds me of a story about a guy that had trouble starting his gasoline (self-propelled) lawn mower.

He took it in the basement to work on it.

He got it running.

And carried it (running) up the steps.

He fell and was injured by the moving Blades.

He sued the lawn-mower company ... because ...

It didn't have any warnings in the User Manual about carring a running lawn-mower.

On the same token, I always have a good laugh at the cooking instructions on frozen prepared food which always starts with "preheat oven and remove wrapper from product" - makes ya wonder if that really needs to be said

I also remember a story about a refrigerator repairman that was called because of a strange odor from the outside of the Fridge.

After searching for the odor, the repairman found an old, packaged, slice of ham, under the bottom Grille.

When he asked the owner about the ham, they replied: It says on the package, "Keep Under Refrigeration"
