Thai Cultural Lessons #2 [Packaging]
This is what happens when you open a packet of crisps in Thailand.
Because packaging in Thailand is designed to be extremely difficult to open. It occurred to me today that this could be to ensure the non-entrance of ants? The problem is it very nearly keeps me out too!!
Other packaging I have found difficult to open include: bread, plastic bottles, ironing board, cuppa soup...
[Disclaimer: This is not a criticism against Thai culture, though on bad days I have been known to let it bug me! But if I am completely honest, I tend to have problems getting into packing the world over...does anybody else have this problem?]
