    Lol it's called a 'needle threader' cos, ya know, it 'threads needles' ;-)

    It depends on the size of the needle but sometimes I need it too.

    I can't start the whipper snipper. Drives me mental!! The mower is fine but the snipper? No way!!

    Why do toys now come not only tied in to their packaging with those metal twisty things but also screwed in?? I just. Don't. Get it!!!

    Lol OP! I said something of the sort at college a while ago. Basically, "The guy who invented chupachups wrappers is a b*stard."

    I think opening metal-lidded jars is a PITA job that involves butter knives and bashing on the bench. lol. I remember when I was a kid, and there was none of this specially sealed nonsense... you just opened the damn thing and hoped someone hadn't tampered with it.

    I also think drink machines where they drop the can/bottle are ridiculous. You're really taking a risk by opening it...

    I used to really struggle with jars until
    DH told me to stab the lid with a knife and voila easy peasy!
