So ... I admit it .. I drank coke for breakfast in the "old days".
Back when I was only slightly more of a sugar addict than I am today.
Although, the amount of coffee I drink which is laced with multiple spoonfuls of sugar, might be sweeter than a bottle of coke.
So we bought a 6 pack of little coke bottles and it was hot and I was thirsty so I grabbed one out of the fridge and twisted the little top and it cracked open and sliced my finger open too.
Yeah, I was attacked and wounded by a coca cola bottle lid.
I cursed ...
I learned some pretty good Bad words over the years and I think I used most of them.
Then I bled some more.
I took a photo of my finger.
Don't laugh... it gets better.
I took a photo of the bottle cap and sent them to Coca Cola and complained about the lids being ridiculous and what if a child opened that bottle.
With little bitty fingers.. I shudder to think.
So I got a response.
A very long questionnaire about nothing related to why they make their lids so sharp edged that a person can slice a finger open , opening a bottle of coke.
I sent back my response.
"Don't be silly, this is ridiculous, here is a photo of my finger and the bottle ."
So beware of Coca Cola bottles, don't let your children open them although they are probably more adept at most things than I am.
And wear protective gloves when you open them for your children .
Or find a new drink.
This has been brought to you by a 9 fingered typist too. Just so you know. I am wounded.
Flowers and boxes of chocolates do make boo-boos feel better.
