To all the people out there who have sworn many naughty words and thrown bottles against the wall in frustration. Have you yearned to get your hands on the person or persons that decided that it would be a fun idea to poison other nice people? They put poison in a bottle of what they needed to live and re-sealing it again? Come on, you know you have had some not-so-nice thoughts of what you would like to do the poisoners!
Okay, maybe not really! When was the last time you tried to open a bottle using a knife to cut the very well stuck on label? And another plastic lid before you could put some honey on your pancakes, or get the lid off some salsa for your chips?
How about those vitamin jars? Merchandisers, what do you think about a stuck-on lid with a long enough tab that my old fingers can get ahold of it and manage to pull it off?
Another gripe, now that I have got your attention let’s discuss Child-Proof caps on medicine bottles! Many of them are so difficult that the only way to open them is to find a Child to do the job. Kids as young as 4 years old can get them off in a heartbeat while you and I read the directions and pull and twist till we are red in the face and ready to scream. Yeah! Me too! And just when you finally get the hang of them, the manufacturers change the style, and you have a new puzzle to solve before you can get on with life.
I love the new deal that is happening, and we aren’t supposed to notice. The bottle, box, or bag size got smaller, but the price stayed the same or went up! Of course, most of us do not pay attention to the size unless it is substantial! The manufacturers count on us being so busy we do not notice.
Another thing I griped about this morning was manufacturers that send directions on installing new devices on a computer. The directions are written in hieroglyphics by a little old Egyptian having a big belly laugh picturing us screaming and pulling our hair out while trying to follow them. Of course, there is another big laugh when we try to find the “help” button. And after spending time typing our problem in great detail, we are told to send a screenshot of the problem.
Today to get someone to call me back to help me, via an in-person call, I gave them enough information to build an android of me. I hope they make her slim and younger! Tell me what you think!
