Warning- this post is coming to you as a minor moan and in the category of "First World Problem" so it's not to be taken too seriously.
Jars....aargh...or to be more precise new jars which haven't been opened and have decided that I, sure as hell, ain't going to be the first one to open them either. I am reaching the conclusion that maybe I don't have as much strength in my hands as some, but I don't like to be defeated by a piddling glass container which sits and refuses to budge when I try to unscrew its lid. Over time I've tried various tricks....wearing a rubber glove to give me extra grip, tapping round the edge of the lid with a knife, running the top under hot water [that one always makes me nervous in case the glass shatters] and using one of those lid opener things with the different sized rings [OK until you get a sloped lid when it just spins round uselessly]. In desperation I go and hunt down Mr GBT or the teenogre, but this reliance on my chaps cheeses me off mightily. So any other suggestions gratefully received!
Next time I'm coming back as an octopus....they seem to have got the matter sussed👍
