I Hate Diet Coke's New Bottle Caps

I know some of you will think this is retarded, but I cant hold my tongue any longer. Diet Coke is a huge part of my life. It sits on a hallowed shrine right next to my Korean BBQ. I drink so much of the stuff that I actually have a callus on my right hand from opening the bottles. Yes, I realize I have a problem...but I'm happy with my addiction so don't go scheduling an intervention cuz I will not being going into rehab.
Back to my point, has anyone noticed that they've changed the bottle caps? I spend almost as much time trying to put the damn caps back on the bottles as I do drinking the stuff. It pisses me off multiple times per day...so you know what I did? I complained. This is what I got back:

In other words they don't give a shit. Seriously, if I could kick the Diet Coke habit I would...I'd switch to Diet Pepsi if I thought I could handle the horrid taste. At least THEIR bottle caps weren't designed by 'tards.
