I’ve somehow caught another cold while fighting off the first one. I went to the store and got the VICKS DayQuil/NyQuil double pack thing. It’s a big box that has a healthy dose of both drugs, sold at a discount to buying both separately.

Here’s my problem: The DayQuil comes in a foil push-through sheet, which makes it pretty easy to extract the pills. The NyQuil comes in that horrid foil pack where you have to first separate your pill quadrant, then tear it at the dotted line, and hope you succeeded. Yeah, the one you usually need to use the hobby knife to utilize.

Why on earth, in the same box, are the pills packaged differently?
