Shopping peeve #1

Why do the electronic devices need to be packaged in these sealed plastic containers that are almost impossible to open once you get them home?

Yes, I understand the need for packaging to be secure so that someone can't lift the items and walk out the door with them in their pockets. Part of that problem is that there are no shopping helpers patrolling the aisles to assist you with your purchase (and oh, by the way, keep an eye on things).

But the plastic is not positioned in such a way as to make it easy to undo the package when the legitimate purchase has been consummated and the product is now to be used without a struggle and multiple opportunities for the equivalent of paper cuts or worse.

Why? Why can't they be designed to accomplish both ends?

Any one else feel this way?

I completely agree Steve. CDs are even more poorly packaged.
