Assembly woes!

Recently I took advantage of an online offer that had a fairly light and inexpensive vacuum cleaner for sale but when it came I found that I had to assemble it myself. Sure it came with an instruction booklet (of sorts) but this did not help. I am absolutely hopeless at doing things like that and have resolved never to buy anything again unless it has already been assembled prior to leaving the warehouse. Just when are manufacturers going to realise that not everybody has the skills or even the tools required to assemble things themselves and cater for those people too??

Nefertari says: Hi PGS...it was a rechargeable Dick Smith/Kogan vacuum cleaner and came with so many bits and pieces plus not very clear instructions at all. Reply
