Why Men Don’t Look at the Instructions

Recently I bought a fireplace set so that I would quit burning my hands when I adjust the logs in my fireplace. 
I unpacked it and set it up and then I happened to glance at the instruction booklet while I was preparing to crumple it up to play catch with my cat.

These are the instructions that came with the fireplace set.  This is the only step to the assembly instructions.  —————–>
1. Hang fireplace tools on provided rack.
It is rather insulting to the intelligence, I thought.
If someone can not figure out that they are supposed to hang the tools on the tool rack, they should not be playing with fire.
What I found truly hilarious was the fact they estimated it would take me five minutes to do that step.
