If you have a bias, you are biasED. ED.

"I'd disagree, but I'm bias" is NOT THE CORRECT USE OF THE TERM!

That is all.

Seriously, this happens so much at work, that I question if I'm doing something wrong closing it the whole way.

When you open a bag of chips and it splits part way down the sides of the bag. This makes me rage.

Oh yea, the cereal boxes also stress me out. not as bad as the chicps though. Cereal at least has a box to contain it, there is no such thing with chips. :scared:

Of course, but that means going all the way across the kitchen to the drawer and fishing them out when you're dying for some crunchy carbo goodness. We're an instant gratification people!

I learned the hard way once that I should always open waffle mix with a pair of scissors. To make matters worse, I was wearing a black t-shirt at the time, and my aunt stopped in right then to drop something off for maximum effect.

I'd volunteer for any marketing focus group for a waffle/pancake mix specifically to give them my thoughts on the practicality of mix packaging. It's absurd.

I doubt they would worry too much about the mix packaging too much. The box, placement on shelves, and getting it into specific stores would be more important.

Though if they knew of a cost effective way to contain the mix without any difference in quality of the mix, that would change things. But, its not something that I could see vastly changing what brand of mix people buy.

You're absolutely right. But it's a cause worth fighting for!

When taking a class from work and they play a video and leave the cursor in the middle of the screen. It takes everything I got not to get up and move that thing to the side where it belongs.

I cooked a lb of shark in cajun rub last night and made sure I took all remnants with me (the bag, the packaging, etc) before I left this morning. Got back from work this evening, and now it's all I can smell.

I don't care if it's 40 degrees out. I have doors wide open trying to get rid of the smell.
