I think I'm going to sue. #2617

I think I'm going to sue Betty Crocker. It's all their fault.

I started making a cake today. I read half of the instructions, but it soon became apparent to me that they had written them for general use and not for my very special, unique circumstances. I quickly revised a few things to meet the needs of my situation.

I got some things out to do it. The recipe said that I needed 3 eggs. I only had one, and going to the store was very inconvenient. I decided just to use the one and a package of Egg Beaters.

I got out a bowl. It wasn't a mixing bowl like the instructions said. It was just a plain old soup bowl, but that should have been good enough. I mean, really, what do they want?

Since the cake takes so long to make and bake, and I didn't want to wait that long, I just kept dipping my spoon into the mix and eating it as I went along. I set the oven to 500 degrees and turned it on to preheat. I added 4 cups of olive oil and my eggs. The package said vegetable oil, but olive oil is so much better for you that I decided to substitute it.

I got out my electric mixer like the one pictured on the package and turned it on the highest level. (I mean, HELLO, I want this sooner than later!) Well, let me tell you, the stuff went flying EVERYWHERE! WTF were they thinking?! Since the mixer obviously wasn't working, I just got out a spoon and stirred my mixture a few times.

I poured the mixture into the exact pan size that they said, and it didn't even cover the BOTTOM OF THE PAN, so I transferred the batter to a smaller pan that was 3 inches deep. I like thicker cakes, anyway.

I put the pan in the oven and went to watch some TV. Who wants to watch something bake? I have better things to do!

Well, 45 minutes later I go to check on my cake (cause it was NOT smelling good) and I notice black smoke everywhere! The batter had oozed all over the side of my pan and burning on the oven's heating element! The rest of the cake was completely charred, there's no way I can eat that. I doesn't even look like a cake.

The box DID say to only bake it for 25 minutes, but really, should that be MY responsibility? Shouldn't the cake just KNOW when it's done and stop baking? Come on, it's the 21st century.

So, here I am standing in the middle of a mess with a worthless burnt cake. My oven is almost ruined, I've got cake mixture on every surface in my kitchen, and I didn't get to have my cake, let alone eat it too.

I don't advise anyone here to buy Betty Crocker products. They are nothing but a fraudulent rip-off. Your kitchen could be ruined.

And I'm suing them. It's all their fault.

This was circulated to me via email in reference to the "ahem" "entitlement" mentality so prevalent in our society today and (political warning ahead...) for which our government here in the USA seems to favor.

But it certainly goes to waywards, too!

It was. As you know, I left marriage forums in general several years ago. It came to my attention in March that some people still referenced some of my posts, like this one...so I put them here.

I read this post on MB. Someone quoted it because people moan about MB not working when they haven't followed the plans! That isn't what you meant???

Yes, that is exactly what I meant, although not specifically about any single person it was quoted to. smile

So it's about the MB plans? You are saying that they should be followed properly?

MB plans have their place. It doesn't provide guidance for complete recovery but if you read the books, it provides a start and path in the right direction.

MB used to refer to them as plans A & B. Each had their place and time for effective usage. They had t/b understood as to their purpose and attitude when they were implemented. Misusing them could result in a backslide for the BS.

JMHO,
L.

Agreed with Orchid. I wouldn't call them perfect, but you cannot conclude that something doesn't work if you haven't actually tried it.

It applies to any plan really. If you are following the Divorce Busting program, you need to follow it. Each part is designed for a purpose.

In the MB world, Plan B is no contact with your spouse. I mean no contact. I wrote long posts as to why this is, as well, pulling heavily from Harley's work. You can't go around making exceptions every day or two and say you are doing Plan B. Consequently, if it doesn't work, you can't blame the Plan.

In the MB world, you can't make room for Love Busters and claim you are following any plan of Dr. Willard Harley. You just can't. You also can't credibly claim to be working on your marriage.

Most modifications aren't made on professional advice or careful analysis. They are made by - using MB terms - your Taker to negotiate as much of what you are currently doing into the program as possible. What you are currently doing isn't working if you are doing any of the programs - that's self-evident - and the Plans are to change your behavior to something that will work. Modifications are self-defeating.

Nope. I originally wrote this in 2002-2003. I have been wondering whether or not to publish it as an article.

YOU wrote that AR? I thought it must for sure be from somewhere. It's really really GOOD!

Thanks. I am trying to figure out what to name it, etc for SEO purposes, so I can make it an article.

I have no idea which ones to try to target. I think I'll do some research. Perhaps I'll stick in it under the marital improvement title theme. "Improving Your Marriage: "...I need what goes after the colon.

I always named my threads clever titles that got people to click... but those aren't terms for which people search.
