Deep Question for the First Day of Spring

Why don't people realize that they are supposed to snip the "x" shaped stitches that are on the back of coats with a split in them?

You know, like a trench coat or a long wool coat that has a walking vent in the back. The manufacturers whip stitch the bottom closed with those 2 stitches so that in hangs well in the store and doesn't get crumpled in transtit...but, hello, People! you're supposed to snip those when you take off the tags!

I have ALWAYS wondered the same thing. At my old office, I once mentioned to a co-worker that she hadn't snipped the threads. She replied that she liked it that way. Which was typical, considering she was a major hick dressed in Limited clothing who liked to say things like "Boar's balls!" when she was annoyed.

Just one of the many reasons I'm glad I'm gone. :)

Boar's Balls?!? Wow. Glad to know I'm not the only one who shakes their head at anonymous people doing stupid stuff.
