From time to time I am going to take the liberty to air some complaints, peeves, and just plain goofiness as I see it. It's not quilting nor is it carving; just some day to day distractions. Chalk it up to old age, grouchiness, or maybe too much time on my hands.
Did you know that you can get a masters degree in Packaging Engineering? And this photo of packaging, is only scratching the surface of the results. There are three (3) lies on the three packages. Advil cap states that it is an"Easy Open Arthritis Cap". Not the first time it's opened it isn't. Vise grips or a sturdy pair of pliers works better. And when totally frustrated, a mallet. The strip cheese also states that it is easy open. What you're supposed to do is peal the two thicknesses of plastic apart to get at the cheese. It would be so much easier to do if one of the thicknesses of plastic were longer than the other, so you could find the seam. But not so! they are the same length. You must use scissors or a knife. The brick cheese states that its package is resealable, after tearing along the dotted line. The biggest lie is that it is impossible to tear along the dotted line.
Yep! I am a grouch!
