or something that you wonder 'how did that get by me for all these years'

hopefully i am not the only one that goes through this trauma, if i will feel even more like a gump.

anyway, my wife brought a toaster into our marriage. i hate it. it always burns my bread even though its set to like 2.
well, earlier i finally lost it and flipped out. threw it out and said we are buying another. then she dropped it on me.

let me first say that out of all the toasters i can remember, the dial has had a number and some sort of guage/bar type deal to indicate how toasty.
ok
well, this dumb ass toaster just has numbers

so, i set it to the number 2 sometimes a touch less and it still burns my toast. i have assumed till this point that the number 2 was level of toastiness on a 1-10 toasty scale.
1 being bread and 10 being black toast.

apparently the number is the indication of minutes...
i mean, can you believe it.
it makes perfect sense......

37 years and i did not know the number on toasters meant minutes....

have you got anything like this?

I learned that sometimes people post "sources" that they haven't even bothered to read yet, and then make comments that directly contradict their own source. That was a head scratcher for me.

I do have to ask, though....you kept a toaster for 37 years?!? How the crap did you not throw it away like...36.5 years ago and claim that it just mysteriously broke one day?

Thanks for the laugh though. But no I don't have anything like your story. Yet.....

Lol, while I can't remember any experiences at the moment, I remember a thread here where some guy spent his entire life sitting on the rim of the toilet bowl instead of using the seat because he thought it was for females.

Dude!

No lie!

I do believe someone posted a vid on this guy awhile back, and talk about feeling like an idiot!

I use those tabs religiously now!

a reply to: seeker1963

never knew here were tabs and never thought to close the lid before attempting to tear the plastic wrap.

i actually avoid using plastic wrap because i can never rip a piece without it getting wrinkled up and stuck together...
i hate it..
now i love it

I grew up thinking possums boinked the female in her nostrils with their bifurcated penises.
I was well into my mid thirties before I discovered, empircally, that this was not true.

I have had the same microwave for years and I still don't really know how to use it, I just punch buttons ending with start and sometimes it works. On the subject of foil, the dull side of the foil doesn't leach aluminum into the food when you cook with the food against it. I didn't watch the video, service sucks. I guess the less knowledgeable Ive ever felt is when I started researching religion, I really felt like not just an idiot but a naive sucker as well.

We had a member here who always thought toilet seats were for women only. Because they sit…as they do.

He had always sat on the bare-rim. He never knew men and women BOTH used the seat!
