WHAT DO YOU WISH YOU'D INVENTED?

As it took me a full 5 minutes (even with knife) to cut away some shrinkwrap without damaging what lay within, it hit me how much is covered with shrinkwrap in my life, and man, I wish I'd invented it!

Then I thought - wonder if any of you ever have that thought?

Well.........do ya..........Sploofusers?

What do you wish you'd invented? And you know what? Let's even add, if you wish, what you wish you COULD invent.

I always wish I'd invented the little diagram that shows you the right way to install batteries in remotes and such.

A GPS system for stores like Target or the grocery store, so I don't have to ask those people where things are at, who probably don't know and try to run away when I head towards them for help. (I know, I used to be one of them)

I would like to have a flipper or something like that on the sides of my car so that I could reach out and whack those that are littering, talking/and or texting on their phones. Think of the uses!!!!!!!!!

In the early 1960s, to open a can of Draino you had to press down hard on a rounded lid (I usually had to use pliers) and then you had to pound a screwdriver into a red plastic seal that was down inside the short neck of the can (it was maybe as round as a penny, perhaps a quarter).

It was a pain to open the container. So I wrote to Draino company and suggested they put a red strip of plastic sticking out from the plastic seal. Those with strong enough fingers could pull out the seal with their fingers, and the rest of us could use pliers to grasp the red strip and pull the seal out.

I received a bunch of papers to fill out describing my idea. I sent them to the company and received back a reply that my idea was not usable because children might be able to open it.

How do you now open anything that has an inner seal? there's a loop, a strip of plastic, just something to grasp with your fingers and pull it open.

I'm sure they had it all designed by the time I wrote - but I secretly like to think that I "invented" the easy-opening inner seal.

I'd like some kind of locator I could attach to the back of remotes or keys like cordless phones have so I can push a button, and they would make a noise when I lose them and I would quit wasting so much time looking for those things!! (Especially with a kid around). Maybe that have that already, and if they do, somebody give me a website so I can buy it!!

Oh yeah - good one.

Which reminds me - I wish I had invented (but I'm so glad somebody invented) those sealing peel tops with the tab you pull open on shortening and coffee cans. How many times has someone been accidentally cut while opening those old type lids - or having to pry on them because they were not well made and wouldn't totally cut with the can opener? I'm all for peel back tops so I never have to use a can opener again nor worry about forgetting to pack a can opener for a camping trip.

Oh that reminds me, to open something with shrinkwrap... especially CD's or DVD's, use a cuticle trimmer.... works great!
