03 PUT THE FISHY GUY BETWEEN THE THIGHS
When large plastic bags are involved, this technique effectively removes the rubber bands. Take note: the bigger the bag, the more rubber bands you’ll see! Hence, it is expected that they will be tougher to remove.
Grip the tag end of the plastic bag with both hands. Then, put the plastic bag between and behind your two thighs, just above your knee joint. Slightly bend your knees. Using your thighs as fulcrum, give a steady and strong tug upward to straighten the tag end and remove the rubber bands.
This gives you more power as you are able to use the strength of your legs and arms in getting the job done. For very tough cases, a few tugs will be required.
This technique is best used when
• Others are watching and you want to look cool in front of them
• You don’t want people to see you struggling
• The plastic bag is big and has long tag ends, allowing you a good grip
• It’s a particularly tough plastic bag to open
This technique is highly recommended, provided that you get a good grip of the tag end. I am successful 100% of the time. It is efficient and safe.
