“You never know how strong you are until you’re home alone and have to open your own pickles”

Pickle jars are notoriously difficult to open. “You never know how strong you are.... until you’re home alone and have to open your own pickles” was cited on Twitter on October 6, 2013.

“You never know how strong you are, until you find yourself home alone with a box of chocolate tikoy. I’m not strong” was cited on Twitter on February 10, 2013, but the strength here referred to not eating the whole box.
