I was attempting to make a pot of coffee this morning, which means having to deal with one of those pre-measured pouches that don't have the convenience of a 'tear here' spot. I believe these things were designed by the same yahoo who came up with the perforated 'press here' flaps on Jell-o packages and Kraft Dinner boxes; your thumb is going to give in way before that perforated flap ever does.
So there I am, tugging and pulling and yanking and even trying to use my teeth, all in a vain attempt to eventually ingest some caffeine. Damn the fools for making their packaging like this! With fuuuuurious anger and amazing vigor, I ripped at this little bag; fearful for its... uh... life, the sealed end suddenly flew open, scattering bits of coffee in all directions.
After wiping away a couple of tears, I started cleaning up.
Given how strict the rules are, I tried very hard to not leave anything behind.
I just hope they don't find any grounds for dismissal.
