This one fell out of my mind as I opened up a packet of water crackers one day. They were the kind that come in a box which on one end has ‘open other end’ and on the other ‘lift to open’.
It prompted deep philosophical questions
- Why can’t they make the ends the same? It can’t be a question of cost.
- Is it part of a conspiracy to create a populace that can’t perform a simple task without direction?
- Wouldn’t it be fun to create packaging that had open other end on each end..would the modern mind implode?
It was completely silly but quite liberating and I continued the experiment through the year. I didn’t try it with liquids though. Much of this packaging seems intrinsically flawed.
I’m not that brave.
