WHAT WAS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN: Airtight seal, then tear-away strip, then resealable zipper closure. You pull the red tab and the heat-sealed edge of the packaging falls away, leaving the ziploc seal attached to the package of cheese. You zip and unzip and the cheese stays fresh.
WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED: Tear-away strip, then resealable closure, then the airtight seal. You pull that red tab and then, restless in anticipation, you part the labia of the ziploc, eager for your precious cheese, only to find that YOUR PATH IS BLOCKED by the diabolical airtight seal that some sadistic fiend at the cheese plant decided to put on the wrong side.
