895: That Hard to Cut Plastic Packaging
So tonight I got out of my car and was about to walk into Walmart and decided to pull out my mp3 player and put on the brand new headphones I just bought in them and just walk around the store to shop and jam out to some music. Well I went to the back of my car lifted the hatch, taking out the package of the headphones (as shown to the left). I started to look for the easiest way to open like the little perforated tab section to peel open. Nope there was none!
I realized that I had placed my scissors that I normally leave in the car in my house. So I had to go MacGuyver on the package using a click pen to poke a hole in it and like a colander and then try to create a larger hole. To little success I was able to poke a small hole open. The inside of the headphones hardly pulled out causing me with all my strength (so it felt) to pull out the headphones. I was at a point of using my teeth. I tried tearing and pulling back and forth a little to some of the inside packaging finally pulled through!
It took nearly 5 minutes to get the darn inside out of the hard plastic packaging! Then when I was done I got a cut on my thumb from the sharp plastic edge! Now how awfully time-consuming is that?!
