I am Granny Clampett...

Not seeing the resemblance?  You will after this sadly true story.

We moved into this house almost a year ago.  I've always liked the cooktop.   One of the kids who had cleaned the kitchen had dropped part of what we thought was a burner grate and it cracked.

shit happens and I was so happy someone cleaned the kitchen without being asked I wasnt even annoyed when my husband said he couldn't find the replacement piece online.  Figured with my Google fu I'd have it ordered in no time.

But I couldnt find it either.   It's not in the parts list, nor is it in any pic from appliance dealers.  

 (Using online pic of same model since mine was just used I won't clesn until after dinner)

Where is the piece that fits over the middle burner?  Why do the product description say wok ring sold separately?  What's a wok ring?

apprently this is a wok ring

Which we've had on the middle burner of our stove for almost a year never once questioning that it was just part of the grating.

it should probably go without saying that I do not now and have never owned a wok, nor am I familiar it's their accoutrements.

if you don't know something is a thing but it looks like something you do know is a thing...you use it as that thing that you know is a thing.

Granny and her fancy eating table....me and my wok ring.  

I've never felt closer to a fictional stereotype.

If Granny were here, and not fictional, she would've just as befuddled as I.

and she wouldn't appreciate people mocking us for our lack of fancy knowing stuff.

She'd have my back.

fun pics of Irene Ryan from way back in the day.

And as mini-Buffy would say:  her eyebrows were on fleek

What kind of troglodyte are you not knowing what a wok ring is.

(As I typed this I am giggling because wok rhymes with cock. Cock ring.)

You don't have a wok? I'm saddened. I have 3 but one isn't usable

No wok ring or wok in my home either.  (I just do stir fry in a fry pan)

so...now that you know you have a wok ring, are you going to buy a wok and start frying up exotic dinners?

No, the whole thing started because it broke and I went looking to find a replacement thinking it was part of the stove. I just get to save the $60 or so and not replace somethung I don't need. :)

wok ring or no wok ring (we are wokless here too), but why does your stove look like some scary thing from a futuristic sci-fi movie?   I'd be scared that thing was going to try and take over the world when I was sleeping or something.

I've never had a 5 burner before and was disappointing to learn it doesn't do the cooking for me.  I need that Jetson's robot maid.

If you find out where to buy a robot maid like Rosie, let me know. Maybe I can find an older, used model to fit my budget!

      I truly try not the judge other parents. I was at a pool with friends the other day and there was a fecal incident. My friend was like, “the parent should know of the child is potty trained and put them in a swim diaper!” I’m a terrible devil’s advocate so I couldn’t bite my tongue. Of course I had to say that the child who pooped may have special needs and we never know. And my friend agreed. 
       

      Of course we didn’t set foot in that pool even long after it was cleaned! The mental image was seared into our brains 🤣

      Jeremy and Jinger did a new you tube video. They are going back to vlogging. They are in a new house, in LA, and it sounds like they plan to be there awhile. They are remodeling. They talked about moving. It was riveting. 💤

      Blaming the parent is a cop out and empowers the child to act out.

      Absolutely - kids are individuals just like adults.  All you can do is your best but nobody is able to be ON 100% of the time without breaks.  We're not machines.

      It's moving day for the entitlement twins.  Anyone want to guess when their next grift will be?  I am sure it will be less than a day for their next "funding request" to appear.

      My guess is that some of their "boxes*" will have been lost, damaged, stolen, etc and they will be needing the items** in those particular boxes replaced ASAP.

      * boxes... if any boxes even exist. They collect free money then do whatever they want. 

      ** items... the lost boxes will "contain" their most valuable belongings so they can beg for as much money as possible.

      You know, it just occurred to me.. why would Josh even think he deserves another hearing? He is nobody but a minor D-list player.. and a bad one at that. Yeah, I know we're all equal under the law, but... he's not all that..
