Random Emails From Mom 3

More wisdom in the form of a forwarded email from my mother.  I didn't know this either!


Subject: Aluminum foil boxes Well who knew this?

I never even looked before! Most of you probably know this already but it was a completely new thing to me!

I’ve been using aluminum foil for more years than I care to remember. Great stuff, but sometimes it can be a pain You know, like when you are in the middle of doing something and you try to pull some foil out and the roll comes out of the box. Then you have to put the roll back in the box and start over. The darn roll always comes out at the wrong time.

Well, I would like to share this with you. Yesterday I went to throw out an empty Reynolds foil box and for some reason I turned it and looked at the end of the box. And written on both ends it said, “Press here to lock end”. Right there on the ends of the box is a tab to lock the roll in place. How long has this little locking tab been there? I then looked at a generic brand of aluminum foil and it them too. I then looked at a box of Saran wrap and it had tabs too! I can’t count the number of times the Saran warp roll has jumped out when I was trying to cover something up.

I’m sharing this with my friends that may not know this. I hope I’m not the only person who didn’t know about this.

I must confess, I didn't know it either. And I just checked and sure enough the tabs are there.
