You cut open the paper across the top, but damn it, this lid isn’t opening! Do you need some help? Let’s discuss how to open annoying plastic containers. Many plastic containers now have snaps, strange clicking devices, hidden seals, and so much more. Carefully inspect the packaging to see if it has any of these additional fun “safety devices” added to the container..
Look at it like this. Imagine an Aes Sedai decided that she wanted to visit Tear in a month and she offhandedly said to someone in the Tower “I will go to Tear in 3 weeks time”. Now lets say that in the meantime she broke both her legs and was assigned a bunch of important duties that she wanted to perform..
