Do You Suffer From Wrap Rage?

By
Industry Observer with No longer practicing real estate as of 2008.

I'm sure we have all suffered from wrap rage at one point or another in our lives.  If you have kids, then you  have suffered wrap rage indeed.

What is wrap rage?  Wrap rage is you trying to open those items that come sealed in that super thick plastic packaging and you become enraged while trying to open a package that is sealed up like Fort Knox.  You try using your teeth, a steak knife, scissors, a utility knife, a screwdriver, your car keys....anything you can find that is sharp or pointed, you try.  It takes you about 10 minutes just to cut your way around the package so that you can get your item out.  And those $#@&$#@ sharp edges on the plastic that cut your hand every time you finally get it open and reach in to yank your item out....just makes you want to throw it out in the driveway and back over it with the car a few times!  Wrap rage!!

Well someone finally created a tool specifically for these pain in the arse packages!  It's called Open It.  It's the cure for wrap rage. 

The cost is about $11 and you can purchase them online or in stores such as Home Depot, Walgreens and Bed Bath & Beyond.   

Here's a few stories of wrap rage that I'm sure all of you can relate to! 

This neat little tool also comes with the perfect size screwdriver for opening up the battery compartment so you can insert the 12 D size batteries the stinkin' toy needs in order to work!

Now, go buy this handy dandy tool so you and your kids can enjoy your Christmas morning without them screaming because you can't get that stupid package open for the one and only toy they want to play with!

All the time, and we really like your reference to Ft. Knox. Thanks for the link to the tool. And for the insight on how many of us feel in the world we live in.

cheers

For every problem there is an enterprising soul who will think of a solution, eventually. Wouldn't it be ironic if this gizmo was packaged in impenetrable plastic?
