From Reddit: My boss ordered a box of 6000 pepper packets instead of a shaker, so now I get to spend my Saturday cutting open packets for our burger seasoning.

Tedious, but better than dealing with customers!

Hmm, idiot boss. And to some extent, idiot employee, maybe just didn't want to confront the boss.
Not sure of exact pricing, but when I was dealing with a restaurant, salt and pepper packets cost us about $10 per 3,000 0.1 gram packages, so $10 per 300 grams, and it's crappy pepper. A pound of higher grade organic pepper usually runs about $15.
Now, figure that even as fast as possible, an employee might get through 10 cuts a minute, which works out to 5 hours to de-packet the pepper. So, based on a wage of $8/hr, they're going to spend $40 to have an employee do the cutting and they lost whatever work said employee usually does during those 5 hours. Or they could have spent $15, kept the packets, and still wound up saving money over the way it was done. Lessee, should've spent $15, instead spent $50. Even keeping the packets and buying the right thing, they would have saved $25 over doing it the other way.
Penny wise, Pound foolish.
