Garbage Disposal

I won't have one in my house.  Do you know how many people have been stumpified or finger-mangled by sticking their hand down there to retrieve a wayward wedding ring or a particularly tasty olive only to have the local equivalent of Dennis the Menace flip the switch on you, just for kicks.  This is also why I leave the gas stove running all the time.  So the grate above the burner is hot enough to press Dennis' face against.  Haha!  THAT'll show the lil crumb catching blighter.  Bet he stays offa my lawn from then on, too.

I never understood how the original Dennis lasted as long as he did.  He shoulda ended up, mysteriously, face down in Mr. Wilson's septic tank by the 4th episode.  That's if Wilson had the patience of a Saint.

Last time a plumber was here installing a new disposal he told us not to put certain things in it. He said that vegetables were really bad about clogging it up. But, but....

Never liked garbage disposals to begin with and then there was an episode in a Steven King novel ..

The classic example is from the film "Rolling Thunder" with William Devane and Tommy Lee Jones.
