You know the ones. Those stupid tags that shops attach to items.
Either as a security measure or as an “aid to display”.
I saw several tweets over Christmas from people who were asking how they could remove security tags from items they had bought as the shop had forgotten to do it. The answer being “you can’t unless you go back”.
Well they can’t be very good for security if people have got the item home without any major alarm going off.
Then this week I decided to buy a couple of pairs of glasses. Just for days I don’t want to wear my lenses or when my eyes get really tired and I need a half point boost. I knew my mum had bought reading glasses in Boots for about a tenner. So off I went.
But I couldn’t try the damn things on because they had enormous tags over the nose bar. Others I saw in Specsavers have them on the arms.
How are you supposed to see what you look like when you can’t get them on?! The tags in Boots aren’t even security tags. Nothing happens if you steal them (not that I was of course). They are on there simply to hang up. But why do they need to hang them up when they have arms on them and can sit on a stand as they do with sunglasses?
I think these plastic tags should be outlawed. I want to be able to try on a pair of glasses not have some tag sticking into my head so I can’t put them on properly or see.
Useless bloody things
