Yesterday I had to pick up some medication from Jim. Here’s what the instructions say:
TAKE 1 10MG TABLET PER
That’s it. So my question is, per what? Day? Hour? Week? Zodiac sign?
Would it kill them to indicate the period for which the medication is intended? If there are a limited number of character spaces for the instructions, there are many words I could suggest deleting before that critical bit. “10MG” is clearly redundant since there’s only one size pill in the box. “TABLET” can go too. Heck, you can even eliminate “TAKE” since it doesn’t actually give any information: “1 PER _____” would suffice. But you’ve got to specify what goes in the ______.
Next rant: Restaurant menu spelling.
Update: Finally found the real instructions — much more complicated. Really the “brief” instrux on the label should read: SEE DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS INSIDE.
