another rant that won't matter (small type)

I received my No-Touch Thermometer today. I saw the previous discussion regarding beeping and vibrating (or not). But I haven't even gotten to the point of trying it out yet. First, I have to find my flashlight and magnifying glass to read the damn instruction sheet. Paper isn't so expensive that they couldn't afford to use another page or two if it meant they could increase the type size to something more reasonable.

After my cataract surgery years ago, the doc did a sort of monovision thing with the lenses and since then I haven't needed reading glasses in the grocery store, or many other places i used to. But lately i'm noticing more and more packaging going down to crazy tiny type sizes. Sure, do that for the disclaimers, but for usage instructions I need to be able to read it, please.

I got mine today also. I managed to read enough of the instructions to get it to work, but was unable to hear the beep go off even though my wife could: Eyes 1, Ears 0.

Yeah, I just went through the manual with flashlight in hand a few minutes ago. I can't hear the beep, either. And I have hearing aids in. Nor do I feel a buzzer or vibration. On the upside, it does display the temperature, so I'm good.
