Packaging – Attention Manufacturers
Friends – shakes piggy head. It never fails. Today we are making major donations to our local Salvation Army in way of furniture – couches, sofas, china cabinet, entertainment center, tables, chairs, etc. There’s a lot going on here at the Hotel Thompson. Never fails that mom woke up with a headache – a really bad one.
Listen up manufacturers – really the packaging. Help! Please look at exhibit A to the right. You have to be a rocket scientist sometimes to open these things. Now let me paint the picture for you vendors – are you listening? Mom’s in pain. The headache is knocking hard. She has a big day scheduled. She is in one of her don’t-talk-to-me-because-I-can-only-nod-back situations due to the pain. She gets a pill and it’s wrapped up in this packaging from Fort Knox. Do you see where I’m going? She then has to somehow wiggle said pills out of the so called ‘easy to open’ package. Yeah right – maybe if you are a two year old. And trust me, there is never a two year old around when you need one for something like this – snorts.
So that’s where we are today my friends. Waiting for the truck to come and take everything away for Part 2 of the renovation. And today gives us just over a little over a week for Part 3 to be finished. Shakes piggy head. This better end well.
