Conspiracy? Or maybe the Transformers really are taking over the world

So we have had this electric can opener for a couple of years. And every time he uses it, my husband has to fight with it. I can walk in, take the can out of his hands and get the can opener to behave and work correctly. He can't.

I bought him a cute little can opener that is supposed to open any kind of can made. He hated it. Refused to use it. Doesnt even know where it is.

Yesterday we were visiting Sam's House of Wal.....and he decided to buy a new can opener. Ended up with the same brand as the ones he fights with. And so he went to use it last night and the next thing I heard was "How the h### does this thing work????" (He's male and so of course rarely reads directions).....I walked into the kitchen, trying desperately not to laugh...and he finally figures it out. Actually looks way too complicated for me! But, it is the one he chose....

And this morning - the toaster broke....

I had to buy a new toaster today. It has settings for things like bagels, etc. I don't know if we will be able to learn how to use it LOL

My DH had a fit when I bought a hand opener from Pampered Chef ("it costs too much . . . . ") on the other hand, we fought with, beat on and surrendered to our can opener for a couple of years. Turns out he throughly likes the Pampered Chef one, will open cans to show people how it works and likes the fact that it leaves a smooth edge at the top of the can. Go figure.
