Mug cons over pros

Upon receiving this mug, I tried to open and wash it out with soapy water for use. You must screw off the lid, but wait. The two plastic prongs on the lid that are supposed to allow you to drink from any side while protecting you from spilling the entire contents; seems like a good plan, however it also prevent you from removing it. It took me some time to figure out how to tilt two 'wings' protruding from the lid in order to get the prongs to give way and not break them. Then, when pouring out the soapy liquid, I discovered that there is almost a tablespoon of liquid that gets caught under the top red ring! I had to rinse and rerinse, then finally stuff a paper towel in there and gently, with a wooden spoon, sop up the liquid and dry out the walls of the mug. Such a strange a time-suck of a mug! The rest of the mug is lovely and grippy. Will be sending this back.
