Frustration free packaging.......the folly of Amazon.
I think every box of Gerber cereal for babies, should have one of these, included:
If everyone carried a small knife, then these package people would back down because they knew their match was met. Teach a baby to have a knife handy and they will always carry one.
Oh man, this subject is one of my favorite of all rants!
Theres a scale. Lets say from the annoyance level of trying to find the end of the roll on clear packing tape, to the frustration of something packed in a way that theres no possible entry without damaging the product.
Somewhere in between lies the evil of so called "easy open packaging"
Youve got your bags where there is a starting point indicated, but superman couldnt tear it open. Or the bag that tears down the side when trying to open the top as directed. Then theres those bags with the inner re-sealable portion that splits open on first use.
Bottles with foil inner seals with an "easy open" tab that either tear off or the seal cant be removed without resorting to the knife you should have used in the first place.
This list could get long......
Point is, please dont label something "easy open" then devise a more difficult way that doesnt work!
Now may I take the liberty of expanding the subject to the inability to read the damned cooking instructions.....
Favorite example- Green Giant steam in bag green beans. You have maybe ten square inches of unused space on the back and they put a little 2 square inch block of instructions using a font so small I would have struggled with it when I was 25 yrs old.... But bless their hearts they had the forethought to use medium blue print on a light blue background, just in case it wasnt quite difficult enough already.
Great product. Convenient packaging. Failure somewhere along the way.
Of course the good news is that you can clearly read the warning that the product might be hot after cooking. Got us covered there!
you would be better off eating the pliers, sawsall, hacksaw AND first-aid kit than the corn flakes. of save yourself lot of trouble and just eat the box.
Cap'n Crunch? Toss the cereal and eat the box.
A baby with a knife. What could possibly go wrong there?
At least its not child proof packaging … you'd be screwed if it was !
Best easy open packages is Oreos. Have a little tab you can pull and sneak out some cookies on the way home from the grocery store, and seal it back up.
Most important tool = the first aid kit. It WILL get used.
I wrote to the dove soap company about being naked dripping wet and not having a hunting knife to open their soap package
+1 -- just check the pack before you buy it! If only my stomach had such a flap. I would pull out the oreo and eat it again and again -- a dozen cookies for the calories of one!
Yep, these companies piss me off. WTF was wrong with wax paper liners in cereal? Small hardware items really piss me off.
No one had Every Day Carry knives (EDC) until all the easy open packaging was developed.
Now there are specialized youtube channels for knives.
getting that band aid unwrapped with one hand while trying to stop the bleeding is always fun
This is my favourite tool for opening padkages, especially those stupid sealed plastic ones. Been unsung it for years
Like a stuck pig today from a stupid clamshell ... my bad ...I own it ... do not attempt without tools !!! I knew that ...
We don't have fingernails like we did in the old days ...
I buy in bulk. What are you guys talking about?
