I am woman...hear me roar!
I spent the day looking for a part for my BBQ. The knob had seazed. You know what? You can find every single part of a BBQ except the fuckin' knob.
Finally ran into a friends husband at the Canadian Tire and he said, "Have you tried soaking it in WD30?"
Why the hell didn't any of the other 40 men I spoke to today suggest that? Long story short, after soaking the fucker for 3 hours and another hour of brute force I finally got it back together and working.
Basically I beat it into submission. And just finished eating steak and baked potatoes. MMMM
