Ageing

There seems to be another form of discrimination that gets little publicity. I have observed that as I have aged, lids and caps are placed on products with additional torque. Cokes have their twist type caps welded to the bottle and this morning I had a terrible fight getting the lid off a new jar of prunes.

I have a rubber disc that I use to remove stubborn caps and lids. I think you can get them at all kitchen supply stores.

Yes I get so p*ssed of, oh, I'm sorry, we've just met. I got so mad at the water bottles that now I go straight to the tap which is what my lazy self should have been doing anyway.

kenju--We have a kitchen full of mechanical thingies, device thingies, etc. Nothing changes the fact the lids are on too tight!
Beverly -- HI!, you're right the water bottles are top offenders, but they are in my wife's department. She can complain pretty loud too.
