    I can't stand those hard hermetically sealed packages like the one below. You practically need the jaws of life to free the item. I received several gifts that were sealed in these packages. I don't think King Tuts tomb is as airtight and secure as these vaults. You can actually injure yourself trying to cut and hack these things open plus you have to be careful not to damage the item. Someone told me there's a device especially designed to free items from these packages so I went down to the store to pick one up and guess what? The device was packed in a hard airtight package. :banghead:

    The baseballs I have don't come in boxes they're hermetically sealed like the Sacred Shroud of Turin. They're all in a case that not even Houdini could have found his way out of. They're numbered and have Hank Aaron, Pete Rose and Barry Bonds' name on them. :p: Now get back to cuddling that bottle of wine Otis and please don't get behind the wheel tonight. :beer1:

    Novel idea, but scissors actually work pretty well on them.

    Some of those hard oval shaped bubble packages that have the item sitting in the center have to be started with a knife to make a hole then you have to get a heavy duty pair of utility scissors that can cut through a shag carpet and start working your way through it. It's almost like they don't want you to get the damn things open. :mad: Sometimes the package has such an awkward shape to it you have to grab it in almost a wrestling type hold and pull it apart so you can free the item. If you're not careful you could actually sever an artery on a sharp corner as you're pulling. I have a few battle scars from tangling with these packages from hell. Usually the item is firmly wedged in the package so that when you get your hand on it thinking the struggle is finally over the item won't budge which forces you to have to cut through more of the package. :bang2: I miss the days when they simply put things in cardboard boxes and taped them shut.

    Yep, hate them beyond belief. More than once I've had to purchase items in that almost impenetrable plastic crap, and had absolutely NOTHING to open it with, not scissors, not a knife, nothing but a fingernail clipper, that I managed to get to finally work!

    I hate those things so much. And you are quite right - someone could really get injured trying to open the dasmn things.
