DP was looking for some new shelves and found this gem. Who in their right mind would write that?!

Sounds like English isn't their first language. Amazon descriptions are often terrible!

Lordy

What they mean I assume is

It's very easy to assemble even for those with few DIY skills

And maybe

Can be assembled by one person, no components are heavy

So why not say that.

Thing is on Amazon etc there are loads of international sellers and different countries have different ideas about what is standard or fine to say. Also translations can be a bit strange...

I bought a bag earlier which they said was 'reasonable quality'!!!

Top notch sales work!

Yeah I suppose there is a language barrier but they still think it’s reasonable to equate ease of installation with what genitals we have.

I suppose you could read it that it was an easy job for women but anyone else would need to read the instructions. Um....Except if you happen to be a plasterboard wall.

I do find that plasterboard walls just will not do any DIY tasks. You can leave a flatpack product next to them for weeks and they will not stir themselves.
