Have a Question?

What are most people doing the day after Christmas?  I’ll tell you what I am doing, trying to deal with the pain in my thumb after I almost cut it off.

Who was the crazed individual that decided children’s toys needed to be  lashed to a piece of cardboard with industrial strength steel twisty ties and then covered in a plastic so hard and difficult to cut it must have been invented by NASA.

And so it was that on what should be one of the happiest days of the year I had broken a pair of scissors and almost severed my thumb with a box cutter trying to open a package from hell.  The ride to the emergency room and the feeble attempt to muffle my cursing should not be the golden memory impressionable children should have about Christmas morning.

Whoever is responsible for this packaging I ask you to #@!!! yourself and cut it the heck out, there are young children in the room!
