SO about 9 months ago I finally decided to part with my 20 year old tupperware juice pitcher because I was concerned it was too striated not to be a bacteria haven. And I said fuck it, I’m sick of the old 70’s style Tupperware pitchers I will see what Fred Meyer has. Nada. So a trip to Target and 80 dollars worth of crap I never would have known I needed including some plactic plates to match my new super snazzy clear acrylic juice/iced tea pitcher with a nice tropical parrot on it. I was so proud of myself, because I overuse things until even the goodwill wouldn’t take ’em and so I thought I was being a good mom/wife/shopper with my cute juice pitcher. But then the weird heat strain cracks started to show up and I was like “Shit! bacteria haven again?” but I thought I could live with it. Then last month it got dropped and lost its fucking handle. Cracked clean off. I will not stray from this rant to tell you how much of a pain it is to clean my (also relatively new) refridgerator and that the juice is still in the nooks and crannies of the seal on the door and driving me batty with the kissing noise every time I open up the fridge, no, I won’t tell you that. So the top shelf where the pitcher goes also has some residual sticking from the juice and its getting nasty and I need to reclean the fridge so I put the juice pitcher on the counter and guess what? Its fucking leaking. After less than a year, wtf?
I hate consumerism and marketing and disposable crap so much I want to scream. In fact maybe I will. Meanwhile, anybody know where I can get some tupperware? I appreciate the cost so much more now. And don’t even get me started about what the inflation index would look like if we didn’t replace goods from 20 years ago with their cheaper Walmart/Target/Made by Small Children In Provinces You Can’t Pronounce, because I’ve got Lou Dobbs on my coffee table right next to The Rise And Fall Of The Third Reich…will I read them is the real question, or just rant about my fucking apple juice problem? I bet Tuperware’s even made in America, sigh.
