Modern packaging proves a bad wrap for Roy

I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a Bad Wrap, no matter what I buy that is sealed in plastic so strong that it could still be inspected by anyone living during the next ten centuries. It used to be when you bought something, you could open the package quickly with your hands without risking injury. Good luck with that today.

My son brought the groceries yesterday along with a fried chicken dinner with mashed potatoes and green beans. Later that evening I decided to have my supper and put the chicken dinner in the microwave and then took out the cranberry nut salad he got at the deli to have with my dinner. I spent 20 minutes trying to open the wrap to get to the cranberry nut salad and finally decided to give it up.

I received a new electric razor last Christmas and I was alone when I tried to cut through the thick plastic that covered the razor. I knew I needed a chainsaw because I had no scissors strong enough to cut through the thick plastic and had to wait again until someone came to open it for me. I just read in the paper that a lady was complaining because her eggs were coming in a flimsy, paper carton, and she, too, thought she needed a chainsaw to get through the plastic surrounding the batteries she had purchased. &nbsp;&nbsp;<ahref=""><spanstyl... 13px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">To view more, please log in or subscribe to the digital edition.</span></a></p>
