One of the most annoying things ever are those damn plastic produce bags at the supermarket, because I can never get them open. I pull, tug, curse and struggle with them, until I get fed up and toss 'em! --solsthumper
From xantippe: Put the bag between the palms of your hands and rub your hands together like you're trying to warm them. The bag will open. A three-year-old showed me how to do this. I always wonder how she learned to do it.
