My cousin emailed this to me so I just had to show all of you. I've been on this earth for 32 years and I'm just finding out about this! I did check and it's true, except my wax paper roll doesn't have them. Too funny.
Did you ever look at the end of your aluminum foil box?
Was this something we were supposed to learn from our Mom's????? I can't believe it's been there all this time.
I had to go into the kitchen and check this out for myself. Whoever looks at the end of your aluminum foil box? You know when you try to pull some foil out and the roll comes out of the box. Then you have to put the roll back in the box and start over. The darn roll always comes out at the wrong time. Well, I would like to share this with you. Yesterday I went to throw out an empty Reynolds foil box and for some reason I turned it, and looked at the end of the box. And written on the end it said, Press here to lock end. Right there on the end of the box is a tab to lock the roll in place. How long has this little locking tab been there? I then looked at a generic brand of aluminum foil and it had one, too. I then looked at a box of Saran wrap and it had one too! I can't count the number of times the Saran wrap roll has jumped out, when I was trying to cover something up.
I'm sharing this with my friends. I hope I'm not the only person that didn't know about this. I know you're going to go and check your boxes, so go ahead!
Some days are curlier than others.

Are you kidding me? Man, those will definitely come in handy. I don't know how many times I've stood there trying to swallow my swearing (little ears) because the darned things just won't stay in the box. 37 years here...then there's my family members who don't know in the 60s. Well, let me just say they'd better NOT know!!!
I've got to go check my boxes out now!
