Prompting this post was my wrestling match with a bag of clay cat litter. Somebody please tell me what the "trick" is to those bags sewn shut at the top? I usually run a 50/50 chance of pulling the string and having the thread "unzip" itself properly. Tonight I fussed with the bleepin' thing for several minutes before lamely chopping at the string with a pair of round-tipped kiddie nail scissors (the only sharp implements handy in the bathroom where the litter pan sits).
What stupid thing gets on your nerves?
