Unwrapping the kids' toys.

These days it takes a good set of tools and about 20 minutes to open each toy these days. Who ever decided to put the little wire twist-ties on these things need to be shot. Anyway, Merry Christmas to all. The Dookies, Steelers, and Wolverines can all eat sh*t and die!

Putting up a Fathead bye yourself is quite a pain too.

The little wire ties are not what bug me, I can actually see the point to those, but the damn 100% sealed virgin plastic containers that they put so many toys in is what really pisses me off. You need a box cutter or a pair of scissors to open em and even with scissors it isn't easy, plus the plastic is so sharp you can hurt yourself handling it. I honestly cannot see the point in this style of packaging.

Yes, the dreaded blister pack. It must be the cheapest way to seal up toys and electronics, while also being the fastest path to a Christmas emergency room visit.
