Anita Grey wasn't quite sure what to do upon discovering that a potential buyer's real estate agent had used a butter knife to pry open a storm door to show her Odenton home while the 53-year-old retired office worker was out visiting friends. "No one had called to set up an appointment," Grey said.

AS I TYPE this, my right hand is throbbing unmercifully due to a nasty gash received while opening a bottle of aspirin with a 9-inch serrated carving knife.As everyone knows, you can't open a new bottle of aspirin these days without some kind of tool, such as an acetylene torch, box cutters or a 9-inch serrated carving knife.This is because, like every other product, aspirin bottles now come double- and triple-sealed for safety.And the plastic they're using to seal these bottles apparently has the consistency of Kevlar, because it can't be torn by human hands.
