I keep seeing this commercial for Scotch tape wherein the… hmmm, how should I insult this pretend gift-wrapper without getting into trouble… oh yeah, LIMITED person can’t cut wrapping paper with a pair of scissors. If that’s not a scathing expose on education today, I don’t know what is. Seriously, we’re to believe that the average person’s fine motor skills are so horrific (and gift giving is all about the gift wrap) that he/she needs different tools? WTF? No. (At least I hope not. Does this mean we need to add yet another standard to those poor kinder-kids?). If you can’t cut wrapping paper, there is NO help. I mean that.
However that doesn’t even touch the whole pre-cut tape pieces? I seriously worry about the person who can’t tear tape. However, if it makes your life… easier (more expensive), go right ahead. In fact, Scotch tape is BANKING on it. 🙂
