Those Plastic Ties
I’m going to lose sleep over those plastic ties.
I bought some socks today.
They were on sale at the grocery store.
Blue is a sock thief so I need to keep replenishing my supply.
When I got home and opened up the package, I was shocked.
There were a zillion plastic ties, randomly inserted between different socks.
Curious, I Googled what is the name of those things.
No one seems to know.
Reddit didn’t know, ChatGPT didn’t know, Google didn’t know.
I kept getting “sock hangers” as the answer.
But these aren’t sock hangers.
I’m talking about the plastic string with perpendicular plastic tabs.
You can’t get them off without scissors, otherwise you’ll tear the socks.
But they’re in there so tight that you might cut the socks with the scissors.
This store really, really, really didn’t want anyone to steal those socks.
There were lots and lots and lots of these annoying plastic strings to cut.
Maybe Nordstrom should start using these security thingies to stop the smash and grabs.
I now have a few pairs of matching socks that, with any luck, will last me a couple of days before Blue gets ahold of them.
If anyone knows the name of those plastic security thingies, please let me know.
I’m going to lose sleep wondering about it.
Everyone has a story to tell.
