Everyone is familiar with blister packs. Those are the hard plastic packages that small purchases come in. They are almost impossible to open. I fret and tear, try to cut with scissors or knife, and still struggle to get those (expletive deleted) things open.
Recently, my wife bought a tool to open blister packs. Guaranteed to cut through those hard plastic shells with ease, the advertisement said. "Great," I thought, "no more fussing and cussing at those impossible to open packages. And just in time for Christmas!"
Guess what? The blasted thing arrived safely ensconced in a blister pack.
