Outrage perfectly timed to coincide with International Women’s Day is this label from Madhouse UK (thanks to Kay for sending the link). Madhouse claims they’re too busy making sure that product meets specs that they don’t have time to proofread their sew in labels. Hmm. One could surmise Madhouse also thinks women generally are inordinately stupid and or gullible. Previously another company created a label similar to this one except it had a bit of wit to it; all tongue in cheek of course. FYI: in the US, you’re liable for whatever you do or don’t put on your labels so you can’t be too busy to proof them.
So how is life in your part of the world this weekend? We didn’t do much beyond playing host for some friends who came from back east. That and waiting for Spring to come already. It snowed last night and the daffodils started blooming last week. It doesn’t seem to have fazed them, quite hardy they are.
Speaking of doing my job, it suddenly occurs to me that I haven’t done this week’s laundry. Where did the time go? Oh well, I’ll leave this to you should you have time to peruse some of the entries published on this site for this week over the past seven years. There are more in the archives page. Hope your weekend was warm and relaxing.
