A quick fix or more things that piss me off.

The RACV (Royal Automobile Club of Victoria) has pleaded with the state government to adopt a road transport infrastructure programme and stop implementing quick fixes – like reducing speed limits rather than improving the roads.

I have discovered a quick fix in packaging.

More and more screw top jars are becoming impossible to open.

I don’t think that the average home cook could get the top off most jars these days, even if they do spend eight hours in the gym each week, pumping iron.

The only reason I can see for this is to improve security, by making the product more tamper proof.

They may have saved a few dollars, by not putting a security seal on their jar, but they will have pissed off a lot of customers who can’t actually open them.

Is it good business to save money and then lose customers?
