As I sit here I am trying to squeeze the hand lotion from my pump bottle. My hands are really dry, and I need that lotion. But I'm down to about the last one-third and it won't pump out anymore! It's so frustrating. It's expensive stuff (for me, anyway) and since I PAY for the entire bottle, I should be able to USE the entire bottle, not just the first two-thirds. So, I have taken the top off and am now shaking/pounding it trying to get the lotion to come down so I can reach inside with my fingers and try to harvest some of the remaining lotion. This is difficult, though, because the lotion is thick and won't drip down the sides of the inside of the bottle very easily. I have red marks on my hands the shape of the bottle opening. Maybe if I keep pounding the bottle against my hands they'll start bleeding and provide the moisture I need to keep my dry hands from ripping apart everything they touch.
The directions say "apply liberally as often as needed." Well, okay, I would but I can't get it out of the bottle! What kind of directions are on the bottle about that??! Huh?! ARE YOU LISTENING, HAND LOTION MAKING PEOPLE???? FIX YOUR STUPID BOTTLES!!
