Bubble Wrap is an Unanticipated Workflow Distraction


Whenever I get a package delivered, there’s usually a struggle between the kids for the bubble wrap. (They especially enjoy the giant ones included in Amazon shipments. They make the biggest noise.)

There’s usually a prolonged negotiation, and then careful division making sure not to pop any bubbles prematurely. And then, of course, copious popping.

That’s why I’m always happy to see packages arrive while the kids are at school. No arguing, no negotiating, and no stress. Plus, then I get to pop it!
