The world’s a frustrating place sometimes, made all the more frustrating by the fact that so many of the annoyances we deal with every day don’t have to be that way. We’ve talked before about scientific reasons behind everyday nuisances, and that’s all well and good. But what happens when the unthinkable happens, and science fails us? What happens when the world is Complete Bullshit, and the only reason for it is human stupidity and selfishness?
Why, Cracked makes a list of it, of course! Below we’ve documented six everyday annoyances that exist for wholly legitimate yet completely infuriating business reasons.
#6. Wrap Rage
Here’s an example of clamshell packaging: You hate it. Everyone hates it. It’s impossible to open by hand, and even with a pair of scissors, massive, hand-shredding chunks of plastic are left sticking out of it at odd angles. It’s the war crime of product packaging, and there’s even a term used to describe the frustration people experience when opening it: Wrap Rage.
So why, you shout, shaking your bleeding hands at the sky, would anyone in the world design packaging that’s impossible to open?
The Reason: Package Pilferage
To make it impossible to open.
