So I'm taking the milk from the fridge today when I notice the text beside the cap: "Reseals for freshness". Wow, a milk container with a cap. What an innovative concept. Have you ever noticed that some of the text on product containers really defy belief.
The flap of cereal boxes, for instance. "To open, lift tab." Uh, thanks. I was wondering how to open this. If you're old enough to read and mentally competent enough to understand the directions, do you really need an explanation? Does Post fear that if they remove the instructions they'll receive a flurry of phone calls? Help! How DOES this box open?
The instructions on a bottle of salad dressing: "Twist to open"
On a flip-top can of carrots: "Lift tab to rim. Peel back carefully. Edges may be sharp."
The edges may be sharp, but clearly corporate America doesn't think we are.
