Are bags harder to open?

I don’t know if there is some insider secret but my success rate with opening biscuit bags is about 1%. It’s simple, right? Tear here and then pull apart the zip lock seal. Almost never happens to me. I tear, I rip, and I split. You might ask, why am I eating frozen biscuits and not farm-to-table ones? I eat frozen biscuits because I don’t eat them very often and they are easy. I can’t tell the difference between a fresh and a frozen biscuit and I don’t live near a Tudors so it’s not that big of a deal to me. I just hope they invent some better biscuit bag technology. Maybe I’m just too impatient when opening the bag?
