I quite honestly dont know where to start with this, its so involved. Most people who have a computer or have any electrical interests know what its like when you purchase an add on component a battery. Even some kitchen appliances. Generally speaking all the things that are hanging up or on racks in the shops or supermarket, they are all nicely packaged so you can see what you are buying in a nice clear plastic pack………. Thats where the f…king compliments end. The frustration begins when you try to remove the item from the package they dont provide explosives so you have to employ other means scissors can help with a struggle but basically its a f….king joke and for people with limited use of their hands nearly impossible. So who am I aiming this moan at. The whole chain of import /export command worldwide, nobody it seems have got their heads to see a problem and nobody it seems wants to do anything about it. Pensioner/invalid groups and senior citizen associations worldwide sit on their hands and say and do nothing evidently. Heres an interesting story, I bought a card for my camera from Comp/USA but wasnt sure it was the right one although they assured me it was. I said lets open it and try it which we did but not before they made me pay for it. I used a card to pay and it wasnt the right card for the camera so now they had to reverse the transaction. The money came out of my card immediately and the reversal took 8 days, hows that for bullshit. Anyway getting back to the packaging, who do you complain to polititians, importers, exporters, are all so out of touch its a disgrace and we have to put up with it. Its bullshit no wonder I get in a shitty.
A very interesting observation has been noted by me on my daily walks around Manhatten. Looking in the windows of stores/shops that primarily sell luggage for the traveller also display an assortment of neatly packaged watches, key rings, and swiss army knives. Swiss army knives? Now the first thing one is asked by security officers at airports is do you have any knives or sharp instruments etc. so why would you think a luggage shop would want to combine the two items. Just seems strange to me. Mind you the fact that some security officers go through rigmerole of asking about the sharp objects (which I might add I support entirely) it seems futile since when you get seated on the aircraft and they serve up the meals every flight Ive been on recently has given me a metal conventional fork and one airline a complete set of metal utensils. So obviously the pre- flight security officers dont want certain individual passengers going on board armed because that would be unfare, obviously its the job of the aircraft CREW to arm everyone so everyone is equal. Odd I spose, but democratic equality in full bloom.
