I have this thing about instruction manuals. For some reason, I refuse to look at it when setting up a new gadget no matter how complicated things are. I break down eventually when I get stuck, but there is no reason why I shouldn't go to it right off the bat and save some time. Maybe it's a man thing, maybe it's because I'm not patient enough to read before digging into a new device‚ÄĒmaybe it's both. Whatever the reason, I don't think I will ever change. But what about you? Do you read your gadget instruction manuals?
