That screechy rasp on top of the salt container

Probably not the biggest pet peeve I have, but the most recently encountered: I cringe at the sound my Morton's salt container makes when I need to pull up its metal tab embedded at the top of the cylinder. I pulls open with such a rough, high-pitched squeak sound that the hair raises on my arms and my back teeth ache.  Why can't they make just a normal, embedded plastic tab opener?

Fingernails on a chalkboard are only slightly worse.
