...so that you can't open them even with two good hands and/or ten good fingers???? Eliminate one of those hands or some number of fingers because you managed to cut them while ....(too numerous to name, insert your own) and you have mission impossible. Normally I have my hand, finger, whatever clamped in a rag to keep from bleeding on the work and if I manage to get the first aid box open the real comedy starts as I begin dancing around the shop trying to open a paper encased band-aid.
Can't they make the tabs on them large enough for normal fingers? I mean think about it, are they trying to make it childproof? What good is the band-aid, if you can't get it open?
