Modern packaging can be challenging to open without resorting to a sharp knife or scissors (with the inherent risk of cutting injuries). Very often food and drinks packaging is marked with the words “open here” or a picture of a dotted line with a scissors icon at the start. Sometimes when one starts to tear along the dotted line, the result is that tear line moves away from the ideal or the package is simply too tough to be torn open without the addition of a sharp tool.
