WFMW: Finding the end of tape


Doesn't it just bug you when tape sticks to itself and you can't find the end? Here's a tip to prevent that from happening. Save those little rectangular plastic tags from loaves of bread. Pop one of those babies at the end of a roll of tape. When you use the tape, remove it and put it back on before you tear the tape, just behind where you are tearing. That way, if it falls back on itself (and you know tape does that just to annoy you), the little plastic rectangle will keep it from sticking!
