Wait a minute Vikingdad...
Maybe it's all you. Maybe YOU aren't impressed ENOUGH by this toaster. Did you watch the video? Mine's just like it.

I cannot believe that anybody would work for an hour unpaid. Seriously. And if the employer allows it to happen that is a crime. If I had any employees working the night shift on a time change they would get paid for the number of hours worked, not what the damned clock said. I had a boss try to adjust the clocks once after I had punched in one day. He relented when I told him I was going home while on the clock to wait out that hour he was taking away from me. He said he would fire me and I said if he did I would see him in court for payroll fraud.

Oh well , it WAS a decent day
A certain someone has been on or messing with the phone almost non stop , So were watching a movie and said person goes to the bathroom to do nails but tells me to keep the movie going .
So Im sitting here eating ice cream and somehow chip another m'effing tooth so I get up go to bathroom , open door and she is on the phone discussing what color she should do her nails , I ask who she is talking to and she says its one of her girlfriends .
I swear I heard a dudes voice , so I ask her about it after she abruptly hung up who it was again and she tells me the same girl . '' Damn Sure sounded like a dude to me !''
'' Well it wont ""

I swear I am going to take that phone and either shove it up her poop chute or put it in 5 pounds of tannerite .

Whats the saying ? If it walks like a duck , quacks like a duck and swims like a duck then its a duck ?
I foresee covert operations

Why don't they make them anymore? Because now they make cheap toasters that you have to replace every few years.

And, if we all had as much fun with the toaster as you are, no one would get any work done. Use that toast to make croutons......or throw it outside for the birds.
Yeah, what is it with some technologies? I mean back in the day all you had to do was drop the slice of bread into the toaster, it would take it down, toast it and spit it back out. Now you have to go to all the trouble of actually pushing the slider button down. Lemme see... do I like Chinese tech better or good old American made... Uhm, China, or America, wow, that's a really difficult decision....

Well Axxe, the toasters they make these days are cheesy, crappy, absolute junk. In fact they are landfill fodder, right from the store. So I don't blame you a bit, in fact you have a lot more control over how you want the toast to turn out doing it the way you do it. My Grandma did it that way too. Her toast was the best on earth, especially since she made her own sourdough bread.

I'm not being sarcastic. I truly am freaking amazed and blown away by this simple device who's only purpose for existence is to lightly scorch sliced bread on both sides. This is the most awesome damn toaster I've ever seen in my whole miserable little life. I am not worthy. I am not worthy. No, not even a little.

Why the hell don't they still make these?
I am amazed by this Toaster too! Its like the Garand of Toasters!!

I think you need to keep this amazing marvel!!

I think I shall. Sue collapsed in amazement when he saw it work. His jaw dropped open, his eyes bugged out, and he plopped flat on his ass when I showed him how it works.

My landlord even came over, making a 45 minute drive just to see it. And she SHOULD be old enough to remember such things. Around 65ish or so. Her husband is 67 I think.
