Broken: Resealable sock bag
Fruit Of The Loom sells socks in a resealable bag. I can't think of a good reason for this. It won't keep water out for long, because the bag intentionally has holes punched in it to let out trapped air.
Maybe it's to keep the unused socks from falling out, but I think most people would just throw all the socks in a drawer after opening the bag.
Just for fun, I tried using the resealing bag feature. No matter how or where I pulled, the plastic around the zipper tore, and the zipper never opened.
