A tight situation

There’s another job out there just waiting on the peeps who package light bulbs. Have you tried to get one out lately?

I push, I pull, I say words containing four letters, use a knife, soak um in water, run a chainsaw; and the list goes on.

Those packers need to apply to the airlines as packing experts. They’d have everybody that flies the friendly skies down to one bag, including carry-on.

Getting a bulb out reminds me of those baby-proof bottle caps. It ain’t gonna happen. Not until you break the remaining four bulbs or of your teeth.

What is that stuff made of ‘cause it could stop a speeding bullet, would laugh in the face of tornadoes and it could give new meaning to push-up bras.

Seems with all of today’s technology, they could find a way to let me slip out a bulb without having to perform a light-ectomy.

If we can send people to the moon, why can’t they make cardboard that bends or gives a little? I’m old. I need bendable, people!

Ping! Oh Lordy. Here we goooo again.

‘cuse me, peeps…gotta run fire up the chainsaw.

JJ--sitting in the dark.

I'm with you on this one....considering they are making EVERYTHING more cheaply these days, you'd think those bulb containers would be thin and easy to work with in retrieving a bulb from its little nesting space in the carton. But somehow that's not the case - we tug, pull, push, coax all to little effect (kind of sounds like what I do when I'm removing my Spanx....haha).

Another grand blog JJ - we feel your pain....

I simply went and bought one of those box openers, it is as sharp as can be and slices through the cardboard like ice through butter. Sometimes we just have to think out of the box...
