Tounge in groove closure used in plastic food bags S@C*K$

Anyone else hate these? The idea of a resalable plastic food bag is great but many don't work very well. I just carefully cut open (along the dotted line) a bag of Costco whole almonds. When I went to reseal the tongue in groove didn't align properly. Very frustrating! These types of bags are ubiquitous now, even in the supermarket deli they put cold cuts in very flimsy bags with this type closure that don't work well. Grapes & cherries are packed similarly. The bags that have the plastic zipper are fine but probably are cost prohibitive for many applications. I think we are stuck in the middle of the bag closure evolution and we'll be laughing at these primitive bags twenty years from now.
