I needed new knickers. My local M&S didn't have the style/size I wanted so I ordered online. They've just arrived.
Inside the plastic bag they travelled in were four pairs of pants, each neatly slotted on to a little plastic clothes hanger. Each hanger bore a folded card bearing details of the garment - style name, size, photograph, price and some selling points.
Each garment had a cardboard tag, attached with one of those aggravating plastic toggle things, bearing the bar code, product number, size and other information plus, each garment also had an adhesive sticker attached, approximately the size of a 2p coin, reading ,"I'm in the knicker deal”
And, just in case I was in any doubt about what I had bought, each garment had its size, product numbers, branding and laundry instructions screen printed on it!
Maybe months of lonely house-arrest is getting to me and small things are looming too large in my mind but .... where, for goodness sake, did the notion of putting knickers on hangers arise? It's ludicrous. And why so much repeated product information? It's not necessary; it's irritating and it's all adding to the tide of plastic detritus that is covering the planet.
