The bottom of the box

This is something that always tickles me. You get a package in the mail, be it from a friend, loved one, or a big box store and the there is about 8 lbs of tape sealing the top of the box closed. As if the contents of this package will jump out if not sealed properly. You spend 20 mins with a combination of knifes and scissors to get into your precious package. But THEN you go to break down the box for recycling of storage and there is one single line of tape sealing the bottom of the box. The bottom of the box is where all the weight is, yet it is the top of the box that gets taped up with wild abandon! Next time you get a package.. think of this and open the box from the bottom, it's easier!

What was in your package that took so long to open? Isn't the tape though fun because it makes your mind wander as to what it could be. --Elaine
