So today I was opening a letter, and it really got to me how awkward it is to open neatly. I have to tear and scratch at the edges (it's worse because I have no fingernails) to open it slightly from one side, but then it tears and I have to start again. Repeat this process 5-10 times and I end up with something like this:
I know. Sickening. Because I'm such a horrendously boring person I got thinking about this for a few minutes and this happens to me pretty much every time I open a letter.
And I hate it.
So I was thinking of getting a letter opener. I used to think letter openers were useless tools, but I really see their appeal now (first world problems, I know). Have any of you ever owned a letter opener? Did it solve your postal difficulties? Do share.
A picture of a letter opener for the less enlightened:
Got any good letter opening stories? Probably not, because then you'd live an even duller life than I. But if you do, please share.
Oh, and where's the cheapest place to get a letter opener? Your advice may save me from shopping around.
