Why and when did packaging become an olympic event? It takes herculean efforts to open a package of cotton balls. I have battle wounds and scars as I sit here a week after I've moved into my new apartment. All due to attempting to open items I bought.
Between a box cutter and heavy duty scissors, I eventually got said items opened. Not without cuts, puncture wounds, and bruises. And the use of some choice four letter words.
Why are my new plastic food storage containers enclosed in plastic that is twice the strength of the containers themselves? Who decided they needed to survive nuclear holocaust unscathed?
My theory is because a Tylenol capsule was tampered with back in 1970 something. Packaging became freaking ridiculous and is only getting worse. And think about it; we buy food for consumption that is naked and unpackaged. But a newly purchased set of salt and pepper shakers will not be messed with DAMNIT!
