At your own risk!

Has anyone ever suffered bodily harm from trying to open reluctant packaging? If so I think we should be told!

It has been a problem now for some time....I have blogged on this subject before so I apologies if it's boring but honestly....words come close to failing me!

I am told it's for our own good...much like what my grandma said when she made me eat my greens...but I suspect it's a dastardly plot to finish us off!

Trying to get into food stuffs wrapped in tough contoured plastic is bad enough but this week I sent for a new duvet...sentimental reasons...I just kept weeping over the old ones...

Finally one new small duvet arrived. It took me and a pair of scissors at least half an hour to release it!

One false slip of the sharp shears used as a knife and it could have been very nasty. I got very cross at having to hack my way through stiff cardboard.

And the pain does not end there...it all has to be jumped on for the recycling collectors....they won't take it till it's been flattened and fitted into an orange bag!

When did life become so complicated? The excuse for all this seems to be that it's all our fault and necessary because we started to try to kill each other..things were slipped into bottles to poison us , sharp blades stuffed into packages, explosives arrived in letters.

So we should be grateful, but unpacking one duvet out of two stout cardboard boxes took all my stamina and determination this afternoon. I didn't die in the attempt but it would be interesting to know of anyone who did! Polythene wrapping is surely easier to deal with, supple, lightweight, see through...could we have bedding in lighter, easier to unpack parcels. Please! Anyone out there.....
