Dear aluminum foil box:

You think you're so tough with that serrated edge, don't you? You may have won this battle, but the war is far from over. Once my finger heals, I'm coming for you. You can take my blood, but you'll never take my freedom!

- Roxy

Preexisting Condition
Your insurance company regrets to inform you that your policy has been rescinded for a demonstrated propensity to inflict self injury.

Mine just charged me for a second co-pay because I had a second test during the same specialist visit.

Forget the foil box. The insurance companies are the real threat to our continued well being.
They only get away with it because retribution is so expensive.

Re: Preexisting Condition
Why have one test when you can have two for twice the price? :P

Forget the torches and pitchforks. We should take the insurance companies by force, armed with the lethal cutters from aluminum foil boxes!

Hmm. Box cutters. Too close to the client for comfort.

...I HATE THOSE THINGS.


Someone should really develop a better design D:

Seriously. Why has no one built a better aluminum foil cutter yet? It's so primitive.

*hands over a band-aid* Y'know, if you could cook a vegetable once in a while, they don't have foil edges. Having said that, some of them do require peeling so... *winces* ;-P

What are these things you call "vegetables"?

Actually, I was covering an extra can of catfood that I absent-mindedly opened.

I am reminded heavily of the Christmas I had to be driven to Urgent Care for stitches over the joint of one finger due to the jagged edge of a cranberry sauce can. We'll fight the Metal together. *fist bump*

The conspiracy doesn't stop at foil, it's also in cahoots with paper!

Think about it, paper lays there all innocent looking, pretending to impart knowledge or entertainment, then wham! Paper-cut!

Yes, paper! it is clearly another evil invention. And it just so happens that I have papercuts right now. Many of them! Nevermind how it happened.

Such a stupid design. Why can't they make it is such a way that it can be torn easily, like paper towels?

'Cause the amount that you need varies depending on the size of the thing you want to cover, and aluminum is more expensive than paper so people don't like to waste it?

Food places have those boxes of pre-cut foil sheets, but that just doesn't work in the home environment where size needs are variable. There's got to be a better way to design the cutter, though. Why has no one done it? It's vicious, I tell ya. Vicious!

Precut plastic wrappings...
Drenkrelar:
Don't know of a pre-cut aluminum foil format, but for those who need protection from sharp objects, there are Zip-Loc(TM) bags... pick your preferred size.

I'm backing Narration on this one: I always feel the need to tear paper towels into smaller pieces. The paper towel (and food) manufacturers sell us more product than we need, simply by making large sheets (servings).

Re: Precut plastic wrappings...
Meanwhile, I hate those paper towels that have half-size perfs. I always want a full size paper towel.

A Ziploc baggie wouldn't have worked in this situation. I adbsent-mindedly opened a second can of catfood and only had one lid for the leftovers. So I put foil on the other one. Sometimes you need to use the deadly foil!

I woke up this morning with an aluminum foil box staring at me. it looked hungry.

Then we have no choice: it must be put down before it kills again. Load the Glock with Glasser Safety Slugs and take it out behind the woodshed like Old Yeller before it's too late.
