Parents put my food into a box... Watch

    The answer depends really on the degree of emotional attachment you or your parents have to the box. If you want to be able to use it again, use a flat-head screwdriver and prise the lid off. If you don't care either way... chainsaw and a steady hand?

    I would suggest heating it a bit to expand the air inside and possibly make the lid and tub a bit more flexible, but it might ruin the food in it, and if you heat it too much you'll probably ruin the tub as well. You could poke a hole in the top to equalise the pressure inside and outside the tub, but that would ruin the tub as well.

    I would've paid good money to watch a time-lapse of you trying to open this box :lol:

    Next time, record it, upload it to youtube, and use the ad money to buy more food!

    I had this mental image of food in a safe. I thought it was brilliant, a truly heroic story in the making...
    You'd have to battle through this indestructible box to receive your prize, the beautifully flavoursome food on the otherside.

    What you've got is left overs in tupperware.


    What a disappointment.
    Yeah, ummn, it turns out I'm just not that strong enough.
    Had to go next door to ask the neighbour to open it.
    He thought it was some next joke

    Is there noone else you can ask to open it for you?

    You know what I said about suddenly noticing your posts around here....

    Is the plastic flexible? Maybe if you squash it sideways then the lid will deform and pop off?

    Or you could heat it all in the microwave, the plastic will soften and expand slightly, should make it easier to open (unless heating it will make your food naff)!
    If it's not a suitable plastic for microwaving it might melt and completely stick together!

    True but if OP can't open a box, are they likely to be able to operate a microwave?

    It looks like one of those ones where you have to press the middle and pull up the side at the same time. One of those evil boxes...

    I also wouldn't suggest putting it in the microwave, as heating plastic can release toxic cancer-causing substances which you really don't want to be breathing in :/ Source: http://www.ecologycenter.org/factshe...theffects.html

    Hammer a screwdriver into the gap between the box and the lid and then lever it off.

      To hell it does.

      I guarantee the OP's parents had a hidden camera set up in that kitchen.
