The person for whom reveilles
and I are housesitting is currently in Amherst cleaning out the house so it can be sold. She bought a dehumidifier for the basement since the one that was down there broke. She asked me to help her carry it in and set it up. I cut the tape on the top of the box, opened the box, and found the instruction manual. After setting up and turning on the dehumidifier, I looked at the instruction manual to see what was needed to hook up a hose to it to allow it to drain automatically. In the manual, I found the section that told you how to unpack the dehumidifier from the box. The first step was to cut the tape on the top of the box. Of course, you can't get at the instruction manual to learn this step without first having cut the tape on the top of the box. You have to wonder about the people who write these things.
