Faced with a jar of Aldi curry sauce. Am I right in thinking that the only way of getting the spices in the plastic pot off the top is by committing an act of self-mutilation? How many fingers, on average, will I lose?

Also, why the bloody hell is the lid on Sainos lemon curd always on SO tight? I'm not the Incredible Hulk. How am I supposed to get in??

My life would be so much easier if I could actually get into the packets of things I have bought.

I have just been mutilated by a plastic strawberry punnet thing: it's time we fought back.

It's the one thing I hate about presents at birthdays and Christmas..

First you fight with the box to open the toy. Then you have to cut cable ties/unscrew a screw/twist a black bit to get the toy off. Sometimes you have to do all three!!

It's ridiculous

Or you can Amazon extra to not have the manufacturers packaging!!

I really hate the peel back plastic that comes on food for the microwave - it never tears off where it's supposed to and I end up splattered in sauce!! (weight watchers I'm looking at you!! )
