What’s A Few Fingers To Stave Off Shoplifting?

We’ve all had this happen to us, as we take a pair of industrial shears to a new purchase’s impervious plastic. Occasionally, we wander away with gore spurting from a few newly crafted finger stubs. But more often, we end up just cutting the documentation inside into confetti.

God knows, customer satisfaction comes after concerns about shoplifting. What’s a few fingers compared to saving a gigantic retail hegemony a few lost bucks? But could you package designers please consider incorporating a dotted line on the package, indicating exactly where the instructions are inside so we can cut around them?
