Dumb Guy Story
Dumb Guy vs The Instant Pot
Hi Jeff and the Men are Dumb listeners, my name is Carl. My wife works very hard and I wanted to start helping out around the house, so I decided to buy an Instant Pot and help with the cooking. You know, that Crock Pot crossed with a Pressure Cooker crossed with 14 other things. It is an amazing appliance and I thought it would help me.
It did, but I did have a bit of a problem. Let me explain.
I scoured the internet for the best fall off the bone ribs and I bought all the ingredients and announced to my wife that she needn’t worry about dinner – I would be taking care of it.
She quizzically replied, “Okay… Really? You’re gonna cook?”
Yes, I told her. The Instant Pot and I have it handled.
Okay… she replied.
I got the instructions and ingredients all set up and begin making dinner. I even put on an apron and a chief’s hat. I figured I needed as much good luck as I could get.
My wife left the house to do some shopping and I began to create the Epicurean wonder for dinner.
I set up the Instant, put water in the silver insert pot, I carefully put in the other seasonings and the ribs – then I plugged it in the outlet…
Nothing. No lights. Nothing.
Weird. Maybe the kitchen wasn’t used to a new appliance, so it was rebelling. Or maybe, Instant Pot was so powerful – it blew the fuse.
I am not handy at all. I mean, I have two handys and leggys, but repairs are not something I’m good at all. I break things. I don’t fix things. So, I started my troubleshooting steps…
I tried plugging it in to a few other outlets. I even moved the microwave and tried plugging it in in that outlet.
Maybe when I rinsed the insert pot, water guide on the innards and ruined it.
I knew there was only one thing left to do. I didn’t want to do it – but I had to.
I had to text my wife.
“Hi, honey. How’s shopping going?”
“Good,” she replied, “what’s up?”
“Nothing really. I plugged in the Instant Pot and no lights are coming on. Maybe the lights are faulty on the Instant Pot…”
“I’ll take a look at it when I get home. Just wait for me.”
I felt bad. I didn’t want her to worry about dinner, but something was wrong for sure, “No problem, honey. See you soon.”
I may or may not have prayed for my Instant Pot.
I also started to Google fuses in the Instant Pot. Maybe I blew a fuse in the Instant Pot. I started to really get freaked out. I wondered if I could order
You see, I thought that the cord and plug
Then, I saw the lights on the Instant Pot. Viola!
The dinner ended up being a success. I arranged it nicely on the plate and posted the pic to Instagram and only got 2 likes. Maybe I should have posed like a sleepy Kardashian next to it. Oh well, there’s always next time.
I keep my dumb guy flag flying over here.
We have another message from a guy named Troy. Troy’s wife was having trouble sleeping and so he offered to read her a bedtime story. She rolled her eyes and let him try to help her get to sleep. Here is the story. ** Warning, this story may cause drowsiness or bouts of ‘Awww,’ because of it’s cuteness. You have been warned.
This story is called, Can you bear it?
There once was a bear named Claire,
She sat in her armchair, eating pears, wearing underwear.
The other bears asked her to share her underwear, but Claire said she had no spare pairs of underwear.
All the other bears called her a square, but Claire said “I don’t care,” then threw pears at them from her armchair.
This caused tension in the land of bears, that was hard to bear.
There was another bear named Armstrong.
He loved to play ping pong – all day long, wearing a thong.
The other bears asked him to share his thong, but he said, “No, that would be wrong.”
All the other bears called him a Ding Dong, but Armstrong was head-strong, avoided them while playing Mahjong, while singing folk songs.
This caused much more tension in the land of bears, that was extremely harder to bear.
There was another bear named Duff, who walked around in the buff.
He opened a business, called Laundry, Fold
Sure enough, Duff lost Claire’s underwear and Armstrong’s thong in the laundry, fold and fluff.
To assist with the rehabilitation of Dumb Guys everywhere, help is finally here.
There is a seat just for you in our Dumb Guy School. We will feature lessons that
will help us dumb guys be not so dumb. And now, class is now in session
(school bell sound effect).
This episode we feature Part 1 with Tricia and Siana, the hosts of The 2 Girls on a Bench Podcast (https://twogirlsonabench.podbean.com/).
