Grumpy Old Men!

This thread is for guys who are sooooooo happy with what life throws at us, (Ladies, come on, start a thread Grumpy Old Women)

I'll start it off with a few;

Why is it that the DW always waits till you are in the shower then turns the hot water on in the kitchen?

Why is it that wheel bearings on cars these days never have to be serviced or greased and last for ever, yet on a trailer, you grease them twice a year and they fail going around the block?

Just bought a printer and scanner for the RV for $38 what a fantastic deal then you find out the USB cable is not included and that costs $15 and at home (8000 miles away) I have a drawer full of cables

In the good old days toothpaste came in sensible tubes, that you sqeezed from the bottom with one hand and it dispensed just the right amount on your brush. You could also roll the tube, in stages, from the bottom and get the last bit out all in a controlled fashion.

Then came plastic tubes, impossible to squeeze from the bottom when less than half full. The paste always works its way to the bottom anyway, it has now become a two handed job to get the last third out and your tooth brush always falls on its side.

I've found that after the plastic tube is 1/4 empty you can fold the
bottom over and flatten it and then put a but of scotch tape around
the fold. It holds the fold nicely. When it's 1/2 empty I fold it again
and re-tape it. It normally only takes a couple inches of tape each time.
3/4 empty fold and tape it again. It's fast and simple and really does keep
the un-used product at the cap end of the tube

The old tubes of toothpaste and model glue that would stay folded had lead in them

I asked my wife this question she said "yep" and she is the authority on me being wrong.

My DD has a toothbrush with a suction-cup on the end so you can 'stick it' upright on the sink; perhaps you can get one of those, in blue of course!
