Senseo “Coffee” machine.
Lid lever thingy jammed. Stood on base bit cos it was going to need a bit of brute force, pulled lever up, machine snapped in half 🙂
Useless machines, massive design flaw. Local authority electricals recycling is where they belong 🙂
Ordering a proper coffee machine this weekend.Posted 4 years agostumpy01Member
Wine glass a couple of months ago. One of four posh ones that we treated ourselves to. We are down to two now….
OH smashed the front door of our double oven while trying to clean it a couple of weeks ago. She undid some screws that she thought were holding the inner glass panel in (allowing her to lift it off). They weren’t. They were stopping the outer glass panel from falling to a painful, shattery death. Which it did. And it’s too old to get a replacement. Bum.Posted 4 years agobrakesMember

I looked at it, thought ‘that needs some WD40 on it, looks seized’ but alas the WD40 was not within reach… put the allen key in, try to turn, little bit more, little bit more, little bit more… PING! sheared the head off the bolt.
after much effing and blinding, snapped the other end of the bolt off and left the remainder in the frame, decided I didn’t need to use it anyway. just do the bolts up a bit tighter than normal…DezBSubscriber
My cheapo Ebay bike trailer. Was gonna use it to go to the Isle of Wight with my son for his rugby tour. We got as far a the ferry port and I manoeuvred the trailer up the wheelchair ramp and the bloody QR snapped off. Stranded. Had to get the crappy car ferry in the end 🙁Posted 4 years agosharkbaitMember
The deck of my ‘big’ mower on Saturday. The deck is suspended below a frame on either side but the frame ripped out of the deck on one side – you can see the holes in the foreground.Posted 4 years agocolournoiseSubscriber
My tall wheat beer glass. On Friday.
Monday before that it was most of the flesh on my knee. Fell off bike and gashed my knee – inch long, half inch wide and almost down to the kneecap. Like a fool I didn’t get it stitched, so now have a massive scab and a knee that doesn’t bend very far.Posted 4 years ago
