The ubiquitous sticky tag. Am I the only one who finds them so
annoying? They're bad enough on glass, but at least you can run them
under hot water or throw the item in the dishwasher to remove the
pesky things. But, heavens to murgatroyd, why do stores persist in
plastering them on leather, wood and worst of all on the dust jackets
of books? I bought two beautiful small acacia wood trays with huge
sticky labels slapped right in the center of both. It took me 14 minutes
to dig them off, and that's with using my favorite handy dandy Goo
Gone and the former nail on my left thumb, now worn down from
excessive holiday gift label removal. Yes, I am known to use my left
hand for label removal, flipping through magazines, holding the phone
and clicking the TV remote, among other odd assorted tasks. I guess
you could say I am just partially ambidextrous. Sorry, I digress.
Anyway, when the manufacturers or retailers actually use those great
easy to remove labels, you know them, the ones that come off with
one nice clean peel, I am in label heaven and I hear lovely strains of
Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah.
Happy gift wrapping, dear bloggies.
And may all your labels be smooth and easy.
