A Pontiac, Michigan man was shocked to find that detailed assembly instructions were included with his son’s bicycle that he was assembling for his 11th birthday. Jason, a 34-year-old electrician, was searching for a missing part of his son’s bike when a suspicious booklet fell from the seemingly empty box. To his surprise, this booklet was filled with detailed instructions on how the bicycle should be assembled. Jason began a quest to discover that most items that need assembly from the factory come with these types of directions in great detail.
“Men everywhere could have saved valuable time had they also found this time-saving booklet”; he told reporters.
Jason has begun a YouTube channel where he unboxes items that need to be assembled to see if they too include the detailed instruction booklet. He then will walk the viewers through a how-to-read an instruction booklet exercise. There has been a great backlash, however from dad’s in the community as many of them believe it is unnatural and unorthodox to use such a booklet. One of Jason’s videos shows how to interpret the instructions included with an outdoor swing set, and that video has had two million views but also at least a half a million thumbs down from dad’s everywhere believing you are born with the ability to erect a swing set.
Even with this negative feedback from other men, Jason still believes that using these instructions will make his life better and desires to be a champion for instruction based assembly, rather than the traditional model of, what Jason calls, blind assembly. Today you can find Jason’s children riding bikes, and playing with toys that were assembled to the exact specifications required by the factory.
