Room 101

Things, people, places, situations etc you hate/loathe/dispise/don't like very much belong in Room 101. If you decide to do the same please comment or link as appropriate as I would love to hear yours too.

This week I want to put those annoying little plastic clothes tags in Room 101.

Very annoying if you have no scissors to hand. If you try and pull them off you end up ripping your fingers to shreds. I am quite sure that they are not going to be very good for the environment (anything small and plastic rarely is) and if it was put on by one of those idiot shop assistants who put it through the fabric instead of through the sewn-in clothing label then they leave gaping great holes in all your new clothes!

Worst is the ones they put on to keep shoes together. How the hell are you supposed to try on shoes if they are tied together! Shuffling around the store as if your 5 year old has tied your shoelaces together is not not going to give you a good indication of whether they are comfortable or not. Why do they do that? Are there people out there who steal only 1 shoe????

I say there is nothing wrong with safety pins (re-useable!) and the good old fashioned paper sticker!
