A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

PUMP IT UP


OK, here's a controversial subject for you.

How come they call it a lotion dispenser, but the hole in the top is too small to put in today's thicker lotion (unless you stand there and stuff it in, which is what I did).

An hour later, after filling the $10 dispenser with the small hole, I washed off the outside where most of the lotion ended up and screwed on the pumper ... and pumped!

And pumped! And pumped!

No lotion. Damn pumper didn't work.

I guarantee this would have happened to me, too, even if it had been a soap dispenser.

It is time to go to Bath & Body Works and buy a scent in a color that compliments your decor. In the end those dispensers just get gooey and clogged, and wind up in the box for items for the future garage sale you never get around to having.

I love the dispenser. Where did you get it? They look so pretty but they really dont work very well. Why dont we make/sell one with a wide top, like they do with the mayonnaise. Hi Wine girl. Are you going tonight to the botttling?

Go to plan B , just unscrew top each use..dispenser will still look cute on your counter..just warn any guests first! Try a similar pumper from other containers to try to alleviate the problem..it's worth a try..it's not the size of the dispenser, but the motion of the lotion!

at least your dispenser is half full.

those dispensers are an easy money maker for whoever produces them -- they NEVER work for me! Not the soap ones either -- which is why I get the "name" variety...

Nice to have you back...
