Marriage 301, Lecture 703: Packaging design and optimization

SH: Where's that little marmalade jar you had?

Me: I finally threw it away.

SH: What? You're supposed to save things like that!

Me: I'd had it for two years and hadn't used it. Why do you want it?

SH: I wanted to put some aspirin in it [to take to Florida with him].

Me: Put it in a ziplock.

SH: No! That's too big!

Me: No it's not. You can fold it.

SH: I was looking for an elegant solution and you're going to force me to accept a sub-optimal one.
