    "pull to open" that`s just a cruel joke. i need a pair of pliers, a sawsall, a crowbar and a first aide kit just to have a bowl of cornflakes

    Go slow.
    That’s what I learned to do.
    It took a long time.
    Now it’s easy.
    I have trouble with jars now.
    Mr. Arthur Itis has moved into my hands and thumbs.
    I wish the son of a gun would go away.

    Yeah, the old right thumb is getting a little touchy.

    Slowed down any of the Jerry Reed I used to have.

    Kitchen scissors. Every time. Those pull open strips are soooo hit-miss.

    How people survive today without a Leatherman or Gerber muti-tool, I'll never know!

    I don't usually have much problem, but Kraft Dinner boxes have never opened properly for anyone. Not that anyone should eat that stuff, but don't you think they would just accidentally make one easy to open? As a mistake?

    I hear you brookdalebill..my knuckles are trashed..my wife showed me many years ago, using a butter knife to break the seal. Go to the lowest thread, slowly work between the lid ..some lids are notched on the bottom, which make's it easier...save your hands. cheers

    Last time I got a new multi tool this thought occurred to me.
    How would I open the package if I didn't already have one????

    Imagine being on a deserted island and a new Gerber falls out of the sky. Be a pretty handy thing to have but you'd die trying to open the package. :)

    If it's in a plastic bag I tear it with my teeth first before tearing it open.
    Cornflakes usually tear right along side the seam, the path of least resistance.

    It's the stuff that comes in the clear plastic packing with the press studs that get me, they are usually welded together, even scissors have a hard time cutting it.

    I bought a bag of mixed nuts last Saturday. I'm still trying to open them. Bare hands don't work.
    I don't know what to try next -

    Leather gloves and tin snips. That's the only to safely open some of those plastic clamshell things...

    For pickle jars and the like, I whack the rim of the lid with the back of a chopping knife. Skip it on an angle. Two whacks, and it's ready to spin right off.

    True, true, but if I may inject an aside... the following has made my life a little more orange.
