After 15 years my old hair dryer died. clickclickclickclick.
for 15$ it didn't owe me anything, and it did simple things; dry hair, get the steam off the mirror, annoy the cats.
The new one looks Electronic. It has a retractable cord, and black on black instructions on the plug explaining what the red and yellow buttons are for. Let me get my glasses. Ah, one is for reset (which I always get nervous about, I have visions of small wires in the wiring bundle HIDDEN in the wall, slowly frying away, getting brighter and brighter. there has to be a reason why a plug needs to be reset, few of them good.) and the other is for test. In case you weren't sure it was working before, "test" will tell you those small wires hidden in the wall are still glowing and you need to Call Someone. =)
I have issues with electricity. You may have noticed.
It also says, "do not use if test fails".
There is a two sided warning sticker on the cord itself--one side says "always "unplug it" after use" (why the quotes?); is this one of those wink wink nudge nudge phrases? Then it says DO NOT REMOVE THIS TAG, and to further enhance your hair experience, WARN CHILDREN OF THE RISK OF DEATH BY ELECTRIC SHOCK. There is a rough drawing of a plugged in hairdryer, obviously "on" and plugged in to the wall, floating eerily above a bathtub full of water. A transparent bathtub, with waves apparently sloshing back and forth so you KNOW its water
pictures in the enclosed 11"x15" sheet, showing you how to use a hairdryer. how to plug it in and unplug it. In four languages. and it also has, for no extra charge, "ionic conditioning' to stop the frizz. Probably what you get when you drop it in the water and try to retrieve it. Well worth 19 dollars.
