Squeeze Bottle Expectations

My wife and I were having lunch last week, and as she was scraping the last of the mayonnaise from the jar, she exclaimed with frustration, "I hate mayonnaise jars!"

This struck me as particularly amusing because I know for a fact she grew up with no other alternative: squeeze-bottles are relatively new, and until not so long ago, if we wanted what was left of the mayonnaise, our only option was to get a knife and scrape it from the jar.

We usually buy our mayonnaise in squeeze bottles to avoid such meal-making frustrations, but in our last grocery click-and-collect order, the store substituted what we had actually ordered with a plastic jar as if it was the same thing.

It's definitely not.
