THE world’s going to the dogs part 556.
Bought a tin opener the other day.
Nothing remarkable in that, you may sigh.
But this was a special tin opener.
It cost £5 and is stainless steel and has a special feature.
It won’t open tins.
We had been having trouble with the old one for months so a new one was purchased from a supermarket chain that shall remain anonymous (Sainsbury’s).
A fiver seemed reasonable in these straitened times but when it came to opening a tin of beans it wouldn’t have it.
It didn’t do what it said it would do on the tin-opener.
Furious doesn’t quite sum up the mood of the struggle that ensued.
How can a brand new tin opener not open a tin?
Seems like a fairly basic requirement for such a tool but this one chewed around the edge half-heartedly and then gave up altogether.
It’s going back to customer services today to see if it can open a can of worms.
Update next week.
