Obviously not anyone with a rheumatic or joint problem.
Iv'e just spent the last 10 mins trying to open a bottle of toilet cleaner trying to squeeze the 2 flat sides together and twist the lid at the same time not only difficult but painful. The same with the bleach may have to see if I can find any easier bottles to buy although I am sure these comply with health and safety laws and are child protective they are making my life more difficult.
Its not only household cleaning products which are a problem, toothpaste will have to move on to a plunger dispenser I think
Milk the little green plastic tag and the hermetically sealed foil circle are both a challenge as are the tetra pack and plastic seal on longlife milk. oh for a pint of silver top and a milkman to deliver it so wouldnt have to carry.
cooked meats in plastic sealed containers are nearly impossible to open with these fingers. oh for 1/4 boiled ham in greaseproof paper and a paper bag
I complained about preparing vegetables the other day and YES supermarkets now sell ready prepared veg but yet again you have to get into the plastic sealed packets not to mention the price.
If you are unfortunate to be in hospital or lucky enough to be in a nice hotel both still present the same challenges. Individual packets of butter,jam,marmalade,biscuits,milk and cereal packets. At least at home when you have managed to get the ceral packet open once it lasts a week or so.
Anyway enough of my frustrations I am sure that the 50's and 60's had there problems but access to the essentials of everyday life was much simpler I am sure
