If you want to improve your life, there are a lot of clever little tricks you can use called “life hacks” to fix problems. Some are great! Some are very, very bad. These are the worst hacks that either don’t work, waste your time, or cause more problems than they solve.
Organize Your Plastic Bags In a Tissue Box to Make Your Next Sneeze Really Gross.
There’s nothing particularly organized or streamlined about having a plastic bag full of other plastic bags in the cabinet beneath your sink. It is, however, much simpler than this method of tying one bag to another and carefully shoving them into an empty tissue box. I mean, at least use a wet wipes container. Or don’t. Maybe the best plastic bag life hack is to not waste time organizing your plastic bags. If you do decide to try this out, at least make sure that the next time you have to blow your nose, you grab from the correct box.
Milk Is Hard.
We’ve tried several times to hire this man, but he’s too good. We can’t afford him.

To be fair to this hack, does work. Kind of. Eventually. However, it is not a very good way to make friends in the office. If your manager comes into the break room to get his afternoon coffee and winds up with a bunch of wieners in his cup, you’re not going to have a good day.

If you find yourself in a situation where you have a metal rack like this, but not a knife and you just have to slice a banana, it’s possible you might actually have a priority problem. Then again, you’re the one wasting all the delicious banana goop that’s left on that tray you have to clean. If you’re fine with that sacrifice, so am I.
