What Really Annoys You

Welded plastic packaging.

Worst injury of my adult life resulted from opening a blister-packed toy train, late at night, in a hotel while on vacation. Bled all over the hotel towels, and spent 6 hours waiting at a walk-in clinic the next morning. By the time I saw a doc, she said my thumb should have been stitched, but had waited too long. Spent the next 3 weeks with it wrapped in steri-strips and a splint.

Stupid human-proof packaging...

Went to the office store years ago to buy a flash drive when they were the new thing and very expensive.  Most of the larger capacity drives had been stollen.  The shoplifters had slit the packaging with a razor, taken the drive and left the packaging on the shelf.

So the only people the welds were keeping out were the people who'd paid for the items.

Most security devices are only good for keeping out honest folks.
