A FRIEND with arthritis had trouble opening her Branston pickle jar (Mail).
She asked a delivery driver for help. Unfortunately, he spoke little English and he drove off with the jar, thinking it was a tip.

MY SOLUTION to opening pesky containers is to use a concrete slab, bradawl, screwdriver and 8oz hammer.
If that fails, I get my husband to do it.
