To Open Push Here

Might I digress for a moment....

So, To Open Push Here. Yep, that's what it says on the side of the Kraft Macaroni and Cheese box. It has since I was probably 7 and cooking mac and cheese on my own. And, since I was 7 and cooking mac and cheese on my own, I have never in the history of mac and cheese making been able to open that stupid box they way they say you should. I always end up shredding the top in a attempt to open what otherwise looks like a pretty unassuming box. To Open Push Here sounds like easy enough directions. Even a kid understands that. But, really, have you ever tried to open it? It's easier to bust into Fort Knox than open a box of macaroni. I've tried. And there's no way I can push that flap in without a) breaking a nail b) dislocating a finger or, c) getting really pissed off.
So, if anyone out there has a suggestion (aside from switching brands - we tried that and don't like the Auntie Annes or the Kirkland brand...) let me have it! Seriously. What were they thinking?
