My wife once put half a bag of lettuce down the disposal. Guess who got to clean it up when it backed up?

My dad worked at the U of Wisconsin as a work-study program when he was in college. He told me a story about how they were taking forks and plates and whatnot off the conveyor belt and sorting it as stuff went by. He started to get dreadfully behind, and one of the people who'd been working there for a long time took pity on him, came over, and said, "Here, let me help you."

Dad expected the guy to start taking some of his load, but the guy took only one fork, and threw it down the garbage disposal. The thing made a horrible sound and EVERYTHING stopped - giving my dad the time to sort everything.

The boss came out of his room grumbling about "who put the fork down the }§#ing disposal?!" etc etc, reset the machine, and everything started back up. Turns out that whenever somebody got behind, they'd grab a piece of silverwear and chuck it down the disposal.

My wife is the master of killing gargage disposals. Somehow if it's food it can't go in the trash, it must go down the disposal.

While we were dating she killed the disposal. Found a 1 or 1.5 hp one at a hardware store. She couldn't kill that one, but she tried.

We then bought a new house. Within a month I was replacing the disposal with a big one. :cool:

Sounds like the workers at the plant, always asking me to break something so they can sit around and do nothing. Everybody loves a bit of good ol' sabotage.

I was getting Mexican food for lunch at a La Salsa type place. Someone dropped the salsa serving spoon on the floor, then quickly picked it up and put it back in the salsa.

Use a 1/4 inch allen wrench to free up the blade.

Clean out the blade, by sticking your hadn down into the top... be wary of who is in the room with you.

Reset the breaker... it is a button on the bottom.

FYI... Most garbage disposals are tested with frozen beef ribs.
