My dad did the same with my basketball hoop... too bad when I dunked it the whole thing fell on me dislocating my shoulder. I refused to let him "fix" it and drove myself to the hospital. Damn his pride, thinking he knows how to build everything.

Dads *usually (60/40) know what they are doing, depending on what they do for a living. My dad is a carpenter/ construction super and he know shitloads. Meanwhile my friend's dad doesnt know what a drill bit is and isn't well educated.

Yeah but your dad would probably be building the shelf from scratch, no instruction manual in the first place.

I'm thinking that the OPs dad doesn't know what he's doing if the OP felt it was necessary to suggest the manual and the Dad felt insulted enough to respond the way he did.

Ha! That's what I say to myself when I draw out character designs/outfits for my stories. "IT GETS THE POINT ACROSS!" - I still consider it really bad, haha. I'll stick with writing.

Ikea's instructions are actually quite straightforward and, for the most part, precise. Those complaining that "it doesn't turn out that way" are most probably just fucking it up and should go back to Lego.

Contrary to popular belief I'm actually literate and I can read thank you very much. Calling someone a "retard" on the Internet. That's really so childish it makes me chuckle

135 i try being civil.. don't worry about that.. 145-you can follow instructions(you being very literate and all) but you wouldn't be able to build it even after reading the instructions properly? explain that one to me smart one.. you may not be a retard, but you're an idiot, that's for sure..

Never once did I state that the instructions are difficult to follow. And I'm sure im not an idiot. It's very rude to insult people you barely know. Surely your parents taught you that?

Margie, just ignore them and stop replying. There is no pleasing them.
There is always that person on FML who picks one comment which they think is weak or dumb and then everyone else follows; pummeling it to-no-end. So no matter what you say, the FMLers will hold a grudge against you for eternity. So just leave it alone.
Thanks for reading; just trying to make peace! :)

145 - I think when 121 said what they did. I believe they were speaking about people in general. Not you. But hey if I'm wrong, then I'm wrong and it doesn't matter. But you can't take shit so seriously on the internet.

It's a shelf. Half a dozen parts and a dozen fasteners with pre drilled holes. (Assuming its ikea or some such) Are FMLers really stupid enough to need directions for that?

What if it's not IKEA and isn't one of those shelves where every last little thing is prepared for the purchaser? I can see a few in my house right now that you probably wouldn't be able to assemble just by looking at all the bits spread out on the floor.

Not everyone buys their furniture from IKEA.

Assuming one way or the other is really pointless though, so it's better to not.
