The Simple Things in Life
The other night I decided that I was going to make myself some nachos, The snack of champions. I pretty much had everything I needed.... chips, salsa, jalapenos, chili paste, shredded chicken, BBQ sauce, (yes, these are things I put on my nachos) and a brand new unopened bag of cheese that I had just bought. Well, as I pull the bag out of the fridge I look at the top of the bag where I see the words, "Easy Open. Re-sealable Packaging." Now, I love re-sealable packaging, but I saw something else on the bag that I felt contradicted their statement of, "Easy Open." At the top of the bag was a dotted line with words on the left hand side stating, "Cut Here." Now, I don't know about you, but I don't carry scissors around in my back pocket. I also don't find much joy in searching every drawer in the kitchen, only to finally give up and take stabs at the bag with a knife. This is not, "Easy Open." They should change this to, "Openable" along with a picture like you would find on most Wii games.... implying "Requires Scissors." A true "Easy Open" package should have a small notch in the side near the top, followed by the words, "TEAR Here." Get with the program cheese!
