Child Proof Caps

So ever since I discovered early on in life that I have awful depth perception and that I’m one of the clumsiest people to ever walk the earth, I have lived in fear of child proof caps. As a legal adult who will soon be on the wrong side of my twenties (the side closer to 30 than 20) it is extremely embarrassing to struggle the way I do with child-proof caps.

I get the idea. You don’t want children in the medicine cabinet. You especially don’t want them opening whatever medication you may have. But I have a genuine fear that one day I will have a heart attack or stroke or something, and the only thing standing between me and my life-saving aspirin will be a child proof cap. I can barely open those things in the best of circumstances. What makes pharmacists think that I would be able to do it under duress?

There has to be a compromise somewhere.
