I’m not talking about the big stuff, like Brexit or Covid or global warming or the fact that one’s beloved snores. No, I mean the really tiny inconsequential day-to-day stuff that can be so infuriating.
Of course there’s packaging that’s impossible to open, especially the version with the triangle in the corner that implies that all you have to do is pull it apart. Huh!
My absolute bugbear at the moment is bar code labels that don’t peel off cleanly. Especially the labels stuck to plastic. I’ve just bought some new plastic tumblers that are for our guests to use by the pool. Do you think I can get the wretched label glue of the bottom! I’ve tried hot soapy water, I’ve tried the freezer. I know if I try any form of solvent it will make the tumbler plastic go opaque. I wish I’d left the labels on now. Any suggestions anyone, please?
I’ll be back with more irritations later, no doubt. Off to finish ironing and window cleaning.
