NOT A HAND HOLE!

I'm not making this up...

The other day I carried a box around in the office and sat it down only to discover this:


Of course, I was holding it by the "NOT HAND HOLES!" What else would two perfectly placed holes on the side of a box be used for? That's like putting a note on a soda can that says you're not supposed to use the hole on the top of the can for pouring or drinking.

Maybe they should put teeth around the "hand holes" to discourage you from putting your hands in the "non-hand holes"

Oooo! Or poison tipped spikes!

Clearly you were supposed to be carrying the box around with your feet. Or your teeth. It's not a "hand hole", it's a "foot hole".

Is it me, or have you been carrying a lot of boxes around lately?

I wonder if they meant to put "handle". "Hand hole", "handle". Not that it would change the meaning. Still doesn't make sense. What the hell am I rambling about? I forget.

Do you work in a box factory?

That was the air holes so the animal in there (that might bite your hands you put in the non-hand holds) could breathe! You sure are lucky you got out of that with your hands intact.

LOl, what is up with that? Did the contents need an air hole or something?

Maybe this was a prompt for persons to lift with their legs, not their back, in order to avoid injuries that can cause Worker's Comp claims?

Any which a way -- it seems like pointless wording. Maybe you should have bounced it soccer style or carried it on your shoulders like a waiter.
