Tab thingy

 I didn’t know this—did you? This is an email that helped me out recently so I thought I would share it here.

I’ve been  using aluminum foil for more years than I care to remember. Great stuff,  but sometimes it can be a pain. You know, like when you are in the middle  of doing something and you try to pull some foil out and the roll comes  out of the box. Then you have to put the roll back in the box and start  over. The darn roll always comes out at the wrong time.

Well, I  would like to share this with you. Yesterday I went to throw out an empty  Reynolds foil box and for some reason I turned it and looked at the end of  the box.  And written on the end it said, Press here to lock  end .  Right there on the end of the box is a tab to lock the roll in  place. How long has this little locking tab been there?  I then  looked at a generic brand of aluminum foil and it had one, too.  I  then looked at a box of Saran wrap and it had one too!  I can’t count  the number of times the Saran wrap roll has jumped out when I was trying  to cover something up.

  If you all ready know  this, ignore this message and don’t e-mail me and make me feel dumber than  I already feel.  If you didn’t know this, leave me a comment and let me know  so I won’t feel so dumb.

 I hope I’m not the only person that  didn’t know about this.

Thanks, Coni! I can’t wait to go look when I get home! I’ve never heard of it and have always had a time of pulling that stuff out!

I’m dumb right along with you apparently. They should come out with a commercial or something demonstrating this feature. Don’t ya think? It can’t be that we’re all just that dumb!
