The holidays were great except...




Minus the events I bitched about yesterday!





What the hell am I supposed to do with this?!





It's a can opener. That I know for sure. I was so happy to see this from the in-laws Christmas morning. I don't even think they knew our old was is a piece of shit. It only takes off half of a lid.

Last night for dinner I was ecstatic to use this bad boy. The handles are pretty cool and the turner thingy (yes, that's a technical term) has a pretty good grip. But how the hell do I get it to actually open a can?!?

I tried for 15 minutes to open 1 single can of green beans! I was afraid the leftovers were going to burn. But, no! The bastard doesn't want to work. Must be a man!

I had to turn my old piece of shit to get half the top off and a knife to pry the rest off. By that point, I don't think I should have been trusted with a knife!

Any words of wisdom? Please?!?

Oka said...

What brand is it?

All else fails it could be a paper wait on the counter where your in-laws could see it.

Can I tell you what it really looks like? The thing the gynos use to "open you up" for a pap. Hahahahaha!! Thing is scary!

Katina said...

I agree with Pamela. That thing looks like the pap equipment---scary! Visiting from PINT!

Shell said...

Oh, no!!!! That's annoying! Hope you can get it to work.

I have never seen a contraption like that. I wish I could help, but I'm clueless!

I've never seen one like that either. Any directions included you threw away and can now go spend hours digging for?

Are you right or left handed? Maybe they bought a left handed one? Isn't there a difference? I just gave you more questions then answers but I feel like there is.

It looks like it takes the whole top off without any dangerous edges. You should look and see if the can is cut on the side of the lip as opposed to inside the lip.
