True Confessions time.

I can't open the bags inside cereal boxes. Either I yank and yank on them until they burst apart and spill cereal all over the kitchen, or else I never get them open and have to resort to using scissors.

The thing is, it wasn't always like this! I distinctly remember opening many a bag of cereal when I was in high school. Obviously, it's a skill I unlearned during college.

There, now you know.


  1. It's not you! Those manufacturers have definitely changed the packaging. And it's not only cereal, but other plasticky bagged goods -- none of them open cleanly anymore. There was something small food item I had the other day (can't remember what it was now) that I couldn't get open to safe my life. Package said "tear here" and I tore and tore and it didn't tear.

    And what about those hard plastic packaging units that they surround electronics and stuff in -- the kind that require a hacksaw and prybar to get into. And you can't just cut off one end, because the item is in the middle and the hard plastic is form-fitting, so you have to chop the package into bits from all directions to get in it. Rant Rant Rant!! :-D

  2. I had to use a scissors to open a bag of chips at work today.

  3. I've never been able to get them open properly. But that could just be me. But these days my poor kids have gnawed the whole thing open before I can even get to it.

    Btw, my blog is moving. Check out the new address.
