That really hard clear plastic packaging. I cut myself so often with it. I was just sent a mobility aid packaged in the damn stuff.

 

 

Ooh yeah I hate blister packaging. Wasteful needless plastic packaging, that is very difficult and inconvenient to open. Just package it in a cardboard box. And with recycled paper packaging not polystyrene inside, which another pet hate.

 

God I'm a grumpy old prick today.

The irony is the aid that was delivered packaged in this devil spawn was and aid to assist the disabled open containers

It's intended to make shoplifting harder I think.

Gotta watch those shady types in wheelchairs opening packages in their own homes. They must really do a lot of shoplifting.

I meant the packaging type, not the specific item therein.

It's not a waste when it prevents loss and theft. Hopefully when amazon make some inroads here we will see their frustration free packaging since there is no need for the hard to open stuff once outside the absurd idea that is retail shopping.

When you forget to turn off the air compressor. And it then starts up by itself late at night and wakes you up. Then you have to decide if you are going to bother getting out of bed so you can turn it off. Or wait for it to reach full pressure and hope that the air leak is small enough so it won't turn on again during the night.

That we haven't yet seen the pee pee tape starring Donald Trump being released into the wild. 

 

 

I'm not annoyed that the tape hasn't been released into the wild.

I have mentioned it before I will say again while we are eating our meal at a restaurant if there is an issue with our meal or anything we will say something, was asked 3 times during our meal tonight and it really pis*sed me off. I know you are just doing what is asked of you so I made a point of saying this the third time they came up and they apologized and said they would pass my comments onto management. 

 

Despite the interruptions the meal was fantastic and I made a point of saying this when paying.

The spell check on my Samsung Note 8.

 

Man, does it allow and/or suggest some really, really stupid 'words'.
