We have no willpower.
Whether it’s “one” last cocktail, a third Xanax or a quickie at a rest stop with a trucker, we just can’t say no. Our mother raised us to be polite, after all.
So it should come as no surprise that when the voice on the TV demands that we “Call in the next 15 minutes for this exclusive offer,” our fingers are already dialing.
When the mailman shows up a few days later, we finally discover whether we’ve purchased a life-changing product or a downright dud.
One of our favorite recent informercial finds is Mr. Lid. He makes us happy in two very important ways.
First, his logo is a gleeful dancing container with a big ol’ smile. Slap arms and a face on any inanimate object and you’ll find us busting out our own jig of delight.
Second, thanks to happy Mr. Lid, we no longer have to worry about embarrassing outbursts in front of dinner guests as we throw everything on the floor looking for lids that match our reusable containers. That’s because every Mr. Lid product has a patented hinged lid that won’t ever get separated from its container.
Now to direct our attention to that big pile of socks without companions.
