    Everyday items designed by a cnut

    Number One:

    The useless fcuking plastic ringpull on the top of a bottle of cooking oil.

    Every fcuking one I've tried snaps before opening.

    Those pre-perforated envelopes that the bank sends - the tear-off strips never quite work and you end up ripping the letter.

    Cutlery with the tensile strength of tin foil. i.e trying to get a scoop of ice cream and having the sodding spoon bend double.

    crappy light bulb sockets that rust away to buggery within six months of installing them, making it impossible to unscrew a bulb that needs changing.

    Thai electric wiring. It comes to something when you know to unplug the washing machine before taking clothes out, so you don't get an electric shock, or to unplug 2 items before plugging in another so you don't fuse the whole house.

    My missus cannot open milk cartons or any carton.

    For the love of trying I have showed her how to do it. If i'm not there she just cuts the damn thing open with a knife.

    back on topic.

    Metal chopsticks - how is one meant to eat oily food with them?>

    Little tubes of superglue, that never can be opened a second time.

    You alway have to buy a new one.

    Plastic CD jewel boxes (they seem to break way too easily when dropped).

    And pretty much anything designed in China.

    Those pissy little single-ply, tiny, servettes you get at restaurants. No good for wiping up a single drop of anything.
