Things that should be obsolete by now, but aren't


#1

I had to buy a new tin opener on Friday - as the handle snapped off on my old one

Like 70% of tin cans don’t need a tin opener to open them - lets make that final push up to 100% and stop messing about with this annoying gadget

Find it easier to use a tin opener than using some of those hecking ring pulls


#4

Always have to slide a knife under the ring pull and lever it away from the tin before I can pull it with my fingers

First past the post

fax machines


#7

I’ve had the ring fail on me and needed an tin opener as back up


#8

Always need to have a can opener as backup for those ones where the ringpull just breaks off.

Guys - all this is saying that the tin manufacturers need to up their game - not that we should still be using tin openers in 2017

In the old days you had to use a hole punch thing to open a can of beer/ coke / lemonade - it was not a better system than what we have now
