Dear Ann Landers,
My husband is a wonderful man, 56 years old and highly intelligent. He had an ingrown toenail that was red and swollen and looked infected. I suggested he soak it in hot water and try to cut as much of the nail as he could. Well, Ann, I caught him soaking his toe in my good crock pot. I went ballistic. He insisted that a little hot water and soap would clean the pot up just fine and I had no reason to fly off the handle. I threw the contaminated pot in the garbage. The next morning, I discovered he had put the pot back in the cupboard. I took it with me to the office and threw it out there. Was I wrong, Ann, or am I married to a man with the brain of a flea? -- Grossed Out in Stockton, Calif.

Dear Stockton,
Sorry, dear, but you threw out a perfectly good piece of crockery that would have been OK after a thorough scouring. It could be that after seeing your husband's infected foot in the pot, you could not bring yourself to cook in it, but actually, the problem was more in your head than in the pot. Should your husband get another ingrown toenail, ask him to use an aluminum pail instead of a cooking utensil. And while we're on the subject of toenails, they should be cut straight across. Sorry if I ruined some breakfasts out there, but this information is something you need to know, folks.

After the idiot husband stuck his infected toe in a cooking utensil I would not use it again either. She should have sent it to you, Ann since you think it would be fine to put food into it again. She needs to put a lock on the pantry or cabinet where she keeps her cooking utensils so he can't do something this stupid again! Get him a plastic dish container to soak his foot (and his head) in so that it won't be used for anything else. Those are also good for generally soaking soar feet in. I use one strictly for this purpose. The man is an idiot and your advise is so wrong on this.

C's Comment
Although what the husband did is gross, Ann is correct. Just disinfect the pot and try and forget the image. Provide him with something else for the future. And yes, toenails straight across and perhaps a visit to the foot doctor or a medical pedicure. Honestly, sterilization processes are for a reason. They work.

Reader Comment
I agree with the first reader comment. I also use a plastic dish container strictly for soaking my sore feet. That man is so wrong and so are you, Ann. C's comment also belongs in the "so wrong column". Some people are just ignorant about disgusting habits.

Our Reader to Reader Question of the Week:


Dear Readers,
, My x-girlfriend who lived with my son and I for 16 years died of cancer. Prior before we knew she had cancer-she moved out because of an addiction problem. We did stay very close before she died. Her x-husband an attorney took over her finances and the burial arrangements. I being financially set was okay with that, whatever they needed I provided. What really hurt my son and I the most was the obituary - we were not mentioned at all. Our friends (mine and hers) were appalled. I was embarrassed and upset for not just me, but for my son-who loved her also. I never been so upset. Her x-husband put his wife and kids and their grandchildren in the obituary, who my girlfriend barely knew. They live an hour away from us. I know its silly to be mad over a little section of the newspaper, but it still hurts. Will time let this devastating loss of her and this article ever go away? I am so angry at this whole situation, its not like we can go and rewrite an obituary notice.

Tell us what you think?
