5. Chinese Takeout Containers

If you have ever been into a restaurant to pick up some Chinese food takeout and requested paper plates only to get a look that indicated the person thought you were a little off, there’s a good reason for that. Much like the paper condiment cups at fast food joints, the Chinese food takeout boxes are folded in such a way that when you unfold them, they become perfect sized cardboard dinner plates. The best part? Your food is already on the platter, so you can just dig right in. Basically, they’re looking at you like you’re crazy because the plates are built-in.
