From The Outhouse

Got this from Old Man Jim who I have known for yeas on other bbq lists. I thought I'd share it here. And yes, I didn't know about the tab thing.


Well, WHO reads the FOIL BOX??? I had no idea....but I there it wuz!

You know when 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 damn 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.

I'm sharing this with y'all hope'n I'm not the only dummy that didn't
know nothin about this.

Ole Man Jim

Jody read that somewhere several weeks ago. Everyone she shared it with (including me ) didn't know about it.

Dang I been knowing about them little locking times on the ends since the Dead Sea was still only sick. Would have gladly mentioned it but never thought about anybody not knowing. I am so ashamed

Thanks Pigs.
