Trivial Gripe Of The Day

Dear Cereal Company (or Company Who Boxes Said Cereal):

Regarding the bag that goes inside the cereal box: can you PLEASE make a bag that doesn't require a flipping chainsaw to open?? Is this asking too much?

I try to gently open it, to no avail. I try to forcefully open it, to no avail. I'm now pulling with all my might and weight, one leg braced against the wall, when the whole thing shatters open. And does it open across the top seam? Of course not. It splits down both sides, still managing to stay sealed like concrete at both ends. So now, the little cereal that remains in the bag (the rest has exploded across my kitchen) still cannot be poured into a bowl. It half-comes out the bag and half-slides down into the box, between the bag and the box.

I hope you get the picture.

Thank you very much,
An irritated consumer

Before you send the letter, could you add a little something about the bag crumbs that always get in my bowl making things a little too sugary for my own good? Thanks, I knew I could count on a fellow cereal lover. ;)

this is one of the reasons i've quit eating cereal (not really -- it's because i'm always running too late in the a.m. to take the "time"). i totally agree with your assessment of the bag-makers. what's up w/the fort knox-like sealing??

ybqdqot -- reminds me of fred flintstone's "yabba dabba doo" sort of...(assuming that you used to watch *some* tv in the "olden" days to know what i'm talking about!)
