@Salanth so very true, You have been selected to be their Servant. But they demand a lease with the option to renew or leave. If you have been good & Obeyed all their commands you get the privilege of having the lease renewed. But if you have not they will leave and find another suitable person they can command
With my cats, the very simple solution is to open two cans of gooshy, and put out four tiny bowls of treats. All six cats go nose-down, and the problem is completely solved for more than long enough to empty the box. And then they can have the box, for as long as it takes for the three shredders to reduce it to shards.
I remember when this started, now Vitamix has sent them three empty boxes for them to love lol. They have a Facebook page too (besides the chonky one they’ve been posting in) called Temperamental Chucklefuck and Friends. The Middle Aged Lesbians are hilarious.
I cannot discount the possibility that they cats may be smarter than the humans, and might have recognized a purchase that should be reversed immediately. That brand of blender is drastically overhyped.
Either way, with waiting this long to open it up and check it out they sure aren’t going to be able to return it’s defective!
I believe someone already said it might be a case of who’s smarter! Lol
@werehatrack For the longest time, they were the go-to for high power blenders. In more recent years, with added competition for this class – Blendtec, Ninja, and countless white-box units based on their expired design patents – they have to use hype to keep on selling.
There’s also the paradox of making things too durable – one sale means many years without another one. The Vitamix I have is old enough to drink.
@narfcake@werehatrack We’ve had our VitaMix for going on 30 years. In that time, I had to replace the carafe once due to a seized bearing. It continues to happily grind/blend anything I put in it. (I can’t speak for more recent models, though.)
