I’m a huge fan of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. After all, it’s the cheesiest or something. The one thing I absolutely can’t stand about it, or understand about it, is the little notch on the side of the box that’s supposed to make pouring convenient.
I can NEVER get the stupid thing to pop open correctly. NEVER. NEVER!!!
Instead, I mangle the box trying to press the stupid thing in, inevitably get angry and ultimately, just tear the whole freakin’ top off the thing.
I know I’m not the only one who loses this fight on a regular basis.
So, this morning when my son asked for “choni” for lunch, my gears started turning about a sassy, sarcastic post, which totally captured my frustration and appealed to Kraft to rethink the “Anger Tab” because it was only good for irking the crap out of moms like me anyway.
As I waited for the water to boil, I cooked up a fantastic, wit-filled post that was sure to bring a chuckle, or at least a sympathetic, “Yeah!? What the crap is that for anyway?!?!?!” from other macaroni box tab warriors. When it was time to fight the Anger Tabs and squash the box beyond all recognition, I grabbed my phone to capture the visual essence of my frustration.
So what should happen?
Those flippin’ Anger Tabs popped right open, just as they were designed to.
Two in a row.
First. Time. EVER.
Well played. It’s a brilliant, sinister conspiracy. Look! The box on the right is actually smiling in triumph!
Blast you, Kraft!! You may have gotten away with it this time, but just wait. My kids LOVE your macaroni! You can’t keep the convenient pour tab act up forever! And when you slip, and I mangle, I’ll have my camera there to capture the whole thing!
This isn’t over.
