Why the fuck do these jars have to be so fucking difficult to open?!

I hate taking out the trash, and opening jars, and taking my car to get the oil changed. I don't want to adult right now. I really, really don't.

Goddamn fucking jar. Angry

For the jars, go out to an auto-parts store and get yourself a small oil-filter wrench.

For the oil change, it's an easy job. Learn how to do it yourself, and turn a two-hour wait into a 30-minute thing. Depending on your car, you could perhaps get double-duty out of the above-mentioned filter wrench. Smile

RE: Ranting corner
Isn't Texas full of steers and queers?

Just kidding never been there. Smile

I am feeling the effects of the chemo shot into my spine last week. I feel very weak and negative.

My 86 year old dad came by and brought me a 2 Lt orange juice. Yay I love orange juice. Plus a hamburger. I reckon I have not had a burger in many many months.

Then my brother came to pick up my dad and brought me a 3 Lt orange juice! He also brought some chicken breast for me to cook tonight. How I will cook is beyond me. It took me two hours to get the strength to get up to turn off the light earlier!

So I am not ranting about an abundance of juice in the house. Just about the chemo I suppose.

Thanks for listening.

To open jars simply use a spoon to wedge under the lip and push the handle towards the jar. This will let the vacuum seal give and you can open the jar normally.

RE: Ranting corner
ugh. Even my hair hurts. Not sure if it's infection, antibiotics, or withdrawal. Probably all three. At least I haven't gotten called into work.

And my couch is uncomfortable because it's a futon. At least it was free.

And the damn pickled okra lid is still on the jar. Weeping

Take a hefty butterknife, and whack the edge of the lid right about where the seal should be with the backside of the knife. Sometimes a good light dent is enough to break the seal and release enough vacuum pressure to allow you to easily open the lid. Works wonders on jelly, jam, pickle jars and the like.

Sadcryface thanks EK. Beating it with a knife plus kitchen gloves finally worked.

Guess who's eating okra, now? THIS GIRL!


Why the fuck do they make jars so fucking hard to open?! Who the fuck eats pickled okra other than chicks and old people with old people arthritic hands?!

I don't know why I'm so fucking mad at this okra jar, but I do at least realize it's not rational. Fucker. Censored

It's to protect the food that's being pickled from getting infected with bacteria.
