    Clear instructions from China

    Hope you're reading this Phil so you can pick up some marketing tips.

    Had a tyre gauge delivered today as my good one doesn't go to the 5.5mb I need for motorhome, it's good job instructions for use aren't needed.

    I have a mental picture of the marketing dept of the manufacturer (AKA the canteen), Boss says in Chinese of course "anyone speak English" and a hand goes up from the new kid in the corner wanting to impress, "translate this then". When finished he says "bloody good job Chung, you sure you Chinese not English?"

    I've highlighted the operation steps bit, presumably you "cover mouth" so no one can see you laughing.
