The OP may very well be a nice guy, young, and new to the hobby. Probably not rich either. I wouldn't blame him if he never comes back on this forum after getting shotgunned like he did. If he is not actually opening the packs, then it is the manufacturer's responsibility to disguise inserts better. Do you squeeze bread before buying to check for freshness? What's the difference?

If the bread you squeezed and left behind is creased, its still edible.

Worst. Analogy. Ever.

I'm sorry but you too are about to get crushed for that analogy.

Actually I thought the counter was pretty good. It was only a matter of time before someone made a terrible pro-packsearching analogy, turns out this person did a pretty good job of screwing it up.

It wasn't a pro pack searching analogy. I would be willing to bet that most people have done it - including squeezing the bread. I haven't bought a pack of cards in probably 13 or 14 years. But you crushed a kid who didn't know that there were hardened critics waiting to pounce. You can turn people away with ridicule or you can accomplish so much more with kindness.

Just sayin'

I agree with you........................ (I know. Just shut up and take the compliment.)

But... Why the hell would you squeeze bread?! LMAO

is this a serious question? do you like hard stale bread? maybe like green bread? or mouse eaten nibbled bread?

you should always treat your bread like a woman. 1)take it out and give it a good look over, if looks good move to step 2)give her a couple good squeezes, if she passes then take her home

... And then the rape charges follow...
Look bruh...
1. Bread IS NOT like a woman. Lmao
2. There's a date on the bread you purchase. Choose the older dates if you want. Choose the newest dates if you want, but I know for a fact! The older the berry the sweeter the juice.
3. Giving a few "good squeezes" will get you TIME.
4. Hold your "take her home." it drives them NUTS.

I hope every pack of cards you open has bent cards in them from the people who bend them trying to find hits.

You don't squeeze bread. I've never bought a loaf I didn't squeeze.

He's not talking about a hard squeeze, a very light, gentle one to see how firm or soft the crust is. I enjoy softer bread(Im sure the guy who brought up squeezing does as well). I only buy 3 different types of bread and normally buy the same one, I want to make sure it's the softest/freshest it can be.

Gotta be a Bread Whisperer
