I just ran into some friends and we got to talking about trying to open various things in the kitchen.
Do any of you have that kind of trouble?
I swear, I think some 25 year old strong man is designing these cans, bottles, jars etc that our food comes in.
I tried for a couple days to open a bottle of Cranberry juice. Couldn't budge it. I took a knife and cut the connecting little tabs between the lid and the other part. Still no go! I set it aside until someone younger and stronger came by to see me.
I even have trouble opening the tab opening cans, like soup and some fruit etc. And, don't get me started on jars of jam.
I do have an electric jar-opener that Black and Decker produced years ago. I can open most lids with that if the container isn't too tall or the lid too tiny. And, I am scared to death that thing is going to kick the bucket one of these days. What will I do then?
My electric can-opener has a detachable ring that you can use to open things. It was way too big for that bottle of juice.
No one is paying attention to the needs of our older folks. It's sad. Someone needs to address this problem but ...
