Is it just me who has trouble opening a pack of cream crackers by the method shown on the pack. I have to revert to a sharp knife and cut the pack in half.

Just been and looked at an unopened pack...nice little zig zag to reveal the red tear strip, a bit like a dairylea cheese triangle. (Never noticed it before though.) Thanks for mentioning it, I always slit the top of the pack.

I don't cut the pack in half. I just cut through the top bit.
...I have never looked at the instructions! I must be a man. :-)
Personally, I find that countless product packs, jars, etc. are so difficult to open these days - ditto for opening biscuit packs as you mention! I have just been wrestling with a packet of pandrops!
A lot of biscuit packets have a tear with a tag to pull at one end.

I read about a man who ate nothing but these morning, noon and night.

I thought to myself 'that's just crackers'.
Cheesy, Douglas.
I've got one of these for bottles and jars, Hazlinny. Really handy.

Thanks Tigger - I do have something called a Jarkey but often forget it is in the drawer!!!
Bottles of oil can be tricky - the little plastic tab you have to grab to pull the strip away from the cap is sometimes very hard to grip, or it breaks off.
Medication is the worst to open.
Those little blister packs spray tablets everywhere.
I tend to crush capsules trying to get them out of blister packs.
I have discovered recently that turning blister packs over and gouging with a thumb nail into the thinner foil there can produce less dramatic results.
Nothing seems to be easy to open these days. An engineering degree is needed quite regularly !!
I can never open cream crackers without breaking most of them! Also the worst thing I have found recently are McCains Quick Chips - trying to get the boxes out of the cellophane wrapper is a nightmare - I would love to challenge the CEO of McCains to open a pack without crushing the box!
