I always struggle when I try to cover something with cling wrap or aluminum foil. First, I have unexplained difficulty in measuring off the proper length. Too often, I go short, not allowing enough to fold down on the sides.
But the worst part is the cutting. For foil, I only make it part way across and then it starts tearing horizontally into the piece I want to use.
Plastic wrap is even worse. Typically, I can't get the cutting edge to cut. So I yank the wrap back and forth across the blades. Finally it tears (not cuts) off at a weird angle. And naturally, amongst the frustration, the plastic sheet gets all waded up and I have to spend another 10 seconds peeling it back straight.
It's not a pretty sight. The really pathetic part is that I used to work in a kitchen, and I never did get the hang of it.
What kind of problems do you encounter in day-to-day tasks?
