A "Reynolds" Revelation

Thank God for revelation...and I'm not referring to the ones of Biblical or epic proportions. No, I'm addressing the small, almost insulting revelations that remove a lifetime of frustration. Leave it to Frau Frugal—my thrifty, leftover hippie chick—to tell me about something that even she didn't know about.

It pertains to Reynolds Wrap aluminum foil and Saran Wrap. After years of zealously pulling the entire roll from the box in an effort to tear a single piece—someone bothered to read the "Press here to lock ends" label on the end panels. Presto! A simple push on these little babies and the roll is safe and secure!
Perhaps the first sheet of wrap should warn: "PUSH THE SIDE TABS, DINGBAT!"

Don't tell me YOU knew about this!

I only knew about the foil because my friend Laura told me yesterday. on May 23, 2008. lol.

I am home on medical leave so I have gobs of time to look at foil pkgs.

Love you Miss Karen.

What! Oh now I feel so stupid. I guess one really should read the packages every now and then. How funny! All those times I was yelling about the whole roll coming out..........oh well, no more.

Thanks for the info.
