Pet Peeve

So, here's my first world problem: clothing tags.

T-shirts
Underwear
Pants (specifically Levi's)
Shirts

They are made from some of the most uncomfortable material around.  Or at least parts of them.  The ones that seem to have been cut with a hot blade to melt and seal the edges are some of the worst.

I cut them out every chance I get, but sometimes, I forget.

What has made things worse are that companies are selling worldwide and so the tags are multi-lingual.  And because that would require a single tag to be over a foot long, they make multiple tags.

I thought Levi's were the worst offender with tags, but today I wore a Calvin Klein shirt.  I'm sitting at work, and I become aware of something poking me on my left side.  I felt on the outside and noticed the collection of tags that I hadn't removed.

I mean, seriously, look at this book.


So, I cut them out.  Six tags total.  

One says in many languages where it was made.  One is washing instructions.  One is who it was made by, and the smallest is the contractor identification.  One is like a model number and has a spare button.

But the worst part?  Check the one in the top, middle.  That one is blank.



BLANK!
