    Damn water bottles! ANY bottle! I can't open a regluar ol bottle of drinking water without pliers and even then I have to hold it twixt my poor throbbing knees then use my left hand and try to PRY it off with twisting the lid. PLUS, the lid is so small with no grip at all even for those with normal hands. AND the pliers are those big ones so even those are making my hands throb.

    This incudes milk containers, screw top fruit drinks, even cans of cat food that have those pop tops and bottles where you finally get the wrapping off, then unscrew it only to find a pull tab before the olive oil came come out.

    No wonder old people are skinny and look like they are starving. THEY ARE. They can't get the fucking lids off!!!! Hello distributers and manufacturers of the above! WAKE UP! Some of us have arthritis and you will too when you get older, you stupid dickwads!

    pant pant pant. No, I don't feel better. I just woke everyone up with my cussing to get a simple bottle of water open.

    ARGGGGGGGGGG!

    Anyone else have a gripe they wanna scream out? Feel free to use this thread.:mad:

    :tongue:

    My Ma has the same issue. I bought her a roll of cheap electrical tape, and wrapped the lid until it was fat enough for her to twist it off. I also got her this little plastic thing that helps pop the lid on canned foods, and that works ok for her. Hope I was able to offer some helpful words.

    Joe is 70 and having prostate problems After his exam, the doctor gave him a
    specimen jar to take home for a semen specimen. "Stop by tomorrow so I can
    run a few tests".

    Joe took the jar home. The next day he returned and the doctor asked him how he
    made out.

    "Not good doctor! I went home and tried to do what you said. I tried with my
    right hand until it was cramped with arthritis. No luck. I tried with my left hand
    until I had blisters and still no luck. I asked my wife to help me. She tried with her
    left hand and then her right hand. No luck! She even tried with her mouth. She tried
    with her teeth in and with her teeth out and still no luck. Then we called Edna next door
    to see if she could help".

    "Good grief" said the doc, "you asked your next door neighbour to help you?"

    "Yep", said Joe......."None of us could get the lid off that jar!"

    I've noticed a trand in hardware and tools that I find most annoying.

    They are packaged in a kind of heavily armored plastic that demands that you pierce it with something pointy and sharp and then you must use some sharped edged (very sharp edged) instrument to cut through the stuff.

    And the stuff they are protecting doesn't need that sort of packaging EXCEPT for purposes of shipping.

    isn't it sad when the packaging has more integrity than the product?

    Update your can opener for 10.99. Opens bottles too.
