Here, again, we have an example of people not giving a flying anything about their customers.
It also shows that even in upscale shops of some repute only the cheapest crap is used to maximize profit.

I know it’s a first world problem, but it just drives me up the wall just the same.

What you can see in the photo above are the feet of three wine glasses that are not exactly cheap. They are some of the best you can buy, they are handmade, mouth-blown, ultra-thin, fragile … and the shop selling them has the gall to not only put one of their asinine security stickers on there but also an additional one, both of which are affixed to each glass with irremovable magic glue.

Trying to get this sh*t off is mainly an exercise in trying not to break the damn glass. And before you remind me that every modern shopper has to run a glue remover chemical lab at home, let me simply state that this sh*t shouldn’t be on there in the first place.

It is exactly this kind of totally inconsiderate and thoughtless behavior that has turned me into an avid online shopper.
