Bashing Knuckles for Razor Blades

Have you tried to buy razor blades at CVS recently?

Needing to shave, I went into a CVS in my new hood to buy my Mach 3 razor blades and faced this plastic menace.

Designed by people who forgot that to buy a product, I have to be able to get it first, it took me a full five minutes of wrestling with the plastic bin, including bloodying my knuckles to get the damn package out.

Oddly enough this is just this CVS store’s razor blade menace. My old CVS at 15th and K had a pull & lever system I would watch others fight with and the one at 14th and Irving has a third system I care not to re-visit.

Might there be a more humane and efficient way for CVS to stock razor blades?
