    Powerade Bottles!!


    Why the H E Double Hockey Sticks are they so damn hard to open?!?!
    I had to stop at Home Depot after work today and I was thirsty. I bought that thinking it would help and while in my truck I couldn't open the dang thing!! Now you see, I have arthritis in my hands and wrists so not being able to open things is nothing new. But after a few tries I always get it. Not this time! It killed my hands and they hurt now! My wife, who has very strong hands for a woman, couldn't even open it. She had to use a knife to separate the plastic ring from the cap.

    I needed Powerade after trying just to get my energy back!

    Sometimes water bottles are also hard to open for me. Thank goodness I'm usually around someone who can help me out at times. One time I just started slamming the bottle on the counter and threw it out in the driveway out of sheer frustration!

    I have to do that too, with all bottles. I have had hand surgery for my thumb and cannot open anything

    I actually do drink Propel but since I was out I had no choice.
    I love Propel! I'm a bad water drinker so Propel is the closest thing for me.

    That's the same with me and the Juicy Juice bottles. One time when I tried to open a Juicy Juice bottle, I got blisters on my finger as a result. But I think the bottles are hard to open becauses there's barely any air in them. I may be wrong though.

    Cool! I know that even Propel bottles are hard to open, especially the ones without the twist off top. But my favorite has to be the lemon flavor. Mmm...now I want Propel.

    Ever tried the grape flavor? I always see it and tempted to try it but haven't dared to yet.

    You were at Home Depot? It's probably a marketing trick to get you to buy this:

    Yeah, it's ok. Nothing special.
