Not About Food

Did anyone else know this? I sure didn't...

Saw this on another forum and thought that it was worth sharing. Being that this is Chowhound, I suppose that most on here already knew this, but maybe I'm not the only dummy!

Great stuff, but sometimes it can be a pain. You know, like when you are
in the middle of doing something and you try to pull some foil out and
the roll comes out of the box. Then you have to put the roll back in the
box and start over. The darn roll always comes out at the wrong time.
Well, I would like to share this with you. Yesterday I went to throw out
an empty Reynolds foil box and for some reason I turned it and looked at
the end of the box. And written on the end it said, "Press here to lock
end". Right there on the end of the box is a tab to lock the roll in
place. How long has this little locking tab been there? I then looked
at a generic brand of aluminum foil and it had one, too. I then looked
at a box of Saran wrap and it had one too! I can't count the number of
times the Saran wrap roll has jumped out when I was trying to cover
something up."
