Millie Garfield, who is 84 and blogs at My Mom's Blog, has an ongoing feature involving video clips of her son helping her open packages that defy reason. I'm not intending to tread on her toes here, but I am beginning to have the same problem.
I bought Glucosamine/Chondroitin, in the hope that it might help my awful knees. While I appreciate the efforts of Walgreens to protect me from tampering, I have to say that the stuff isn't going to help me unless I can actually open the bottle.
First, it was a "twofer," so I had to separate the two bottles, bound by some sort of shrink wrap that was impervious to all but Cutco scissors (the ones that can cut a penny). Each bottle has the lid sealed with yet more shrink wrap, and I really think they should use this particular type as body armour for our soldiers. Some companies perforate the shrink wrap around the caps of their containers, but not Walgreens. Nope. This one was impervious even to Cutco, and required a razor blade. Having finally removed the cap, I was met with the last line of defense--a plastic/foil membrane, extended over the mouth of the bottle and attached with super-glue. No amount of pressure would puncture, nor prying loosen this final barrier. It took stabbing with a sharp object to get past it.
Opening the container netted me my cardio workout for the day.
Did I mention that this is the "easy-open" container, for people with arthritis?
