Forgetfulness [POLLS]

How often do you…

Burn the toast?

  • Every damn time
  • Too often if I’m honest
  • Rarely my eye is firmly on the ball
  • I stand over the toaster/grill like some kind of bread Paladin

It’s more the case that my toaster and I are pretty sympatico and work together well to get great toast

I like my toast just a step up from slightly warm bread. It requires constant vigilance.

Again, I’m so focused on getting tea that I will not forget this. If I’m boiling the kettle, you know it’s getting converted into tea

I have calibrated my toaster so it comes out just how I like it each time.

My excellent dualit rarely burns the toast. Don’t even watch it. I 100% trust that dude

Deteriorating memory is the thing I am most scared of and worried about

Having a kid made this so bad. Weekends get so bland/similar :grimacing:

From experience in catering, I always find that the first time around with a Dualit is excellent, but if you’re going back in for more toast immediately after (let’s say you’ve got all your mates over and you’re having a slamming toast party or something similar) it stays very hot and subsequent rounds are liable to over-toasting.

Aye, it’s worrying me innit. (I think it might be a direct result of sleeping pills which I’m weaning myself off)

My memory for minute details of stuff used to be really good, I’m regularly completely forgetting conversations I’ve had etc these days though.

ooh, i meant to make this thread last week
