Several times a week I purchase a drink at a drive-through restaurant. Lately, I have been fighting with straw wrappers.
Our McDonald's has been using plastic wrappers instead of paper ones. I fight to tear and tear and rip and rip just to get to the straw. But it doesn't work.
I try hitting them against the console or my lap in hopes that the straw will poke through the top. But it doesn't work.
I usually end up using my teeth to tear the wrapper, which is not too smart because many times I get a piece of plastic left in my mouth, or I am driving while trying to just unwrap my darn straw. I have been losing the battle with the wrappers and have become so frustrated...
It was today that I realized about an inch and half down the straw, there is a tiny little slit -- a tiny start used to take off the top of the wrapper. Just. Like. That!
BINGO! I have conquered the wrapper!
