WHYYYY do things always seem so good on paper? >:( Then you use them and ARGH FLAWS BECOME APPARENT

CASE IN POINT! Toilet Duck "FreshDisks"
They're supposed to be some "better than a rim-block" alternative to a rimblock, right? As in, instead of a manky plastic cage with a blob of green soapy crap in it that you hang over the rim of the toilet bowl, so it can "freshen" the bowl every time you flush (yeah right, cuz finding somewhere in the bowl they get a good floosh of water over them is QUITE EASY), you have a tube of green goop that you squirt at the bowl.

Sounds good on paper! Those cages get disgusting and this is all super dissolvable goop, no mess etc. Right?

WRONG!

a) IT DOESN'T STICK. About one flush after I used the thing and it had sluuuuuurmed down the inside of the bowl, so instead of a little "floret" of goop I had the world's biggest bogey splodged on the inside of the loo. GREAT.

b) HOW THE F'CK ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO USE A LOOBRUSH WITHOUT SCRUBBING IT OFF??!

Argh. *flails arms*

Edit: OWWW ARGH FUCK OW

THREE TIPS:
a) if rearranging a pan of things (like potato wedges, for instance), when you balance it a bit off centre on the cooker top, don't scoot all the weight into the unsupported end.
b) don't put it into a 200 degree oven and expect it not to be hot.
c) when it starts to fall off, TAME YOUR REFLEXES AND DON'T TRY AND CATCH IT WITH YOUR GODDAMN HAND
d) don't suck the injury because goddamn does your mouth ever feel like a furnace.

OWWW ow ow ow burnded. *stands with finger under cold water*

Edit2: ONE GOOD THING: CHAPTER IS NEARLY DONE!

It's a bad thing when characters who exist solely in your head are heckling you to get it done, ne?

What? As opposed to real-life people heckling you to get it done? ;)

Do you have any aloe vera gel around? It's great for soothing burns.

Well I can just turn my internets off, and those people don't bother me any more. ;) It's the ones I CAN'T ESCAPE SHUT UP SKYWARP ARGH.

No, I don't. It'd pretty much cleared up by the end of the evening, though, thankfully, so... I guess I was just being a wimp. I just have a teeny flat white blister there now.

I think I was figuring that the clever bods would have worked that out when they designed the things, and admittedly, I've used them again since and it SEEMS to be sticking better. ¬_¬ But I still can't scrub the bowl out very well between sticking the disks on, so I still get all limescale build up.

I'd prefer to use Bloo, but I can't get the lid off the cistern very easily. :P It's one of them ones with a flush button in the middle of the top, not on the outside.
