What's bugging me? Shoddy merchandise - clothing, household items - you name it, nothing is "like it used to be."
On the weekend I purchased two sets of queen size sheets and a comforter set in a bag - well, out of that, one pair of sheets and the set are going back - I bought the comforter set at Home Sense, I was hopeful, but it wasn't to be, the comforter was way too small for the bed and the black pillow sham had a white stitch randomly placed, not another white stitch to be seen on the sham! So disappointed!! The sheets I bought at Costco, I had never purchased a pair of sheets there before, but there was a lady getting a pair, not her first pair as she praised them to the highest - I would be hard pressed to say anything good about them, they were too tight on the bed, I didn't like the feel of them and worst of all, there was a hole in them!! It's no sense to buy sheets that are too tight for the bed, I bought a new set in the summer, they just made their way to Value Village - they shrunk up so much, I couldn't even tuck in the sheet. The one set of sheets that I did keep are so wrinkly after washing and drying, I will need to iron the pillowcases - that is a step back for sure, I can remember my grandmother doing that! It's a sad situation - one set of sheets were made in China, another in Bahrain - to tell you the truth, I don't even know where Bahrain is!!! I think you'd be looking a long time to find things like this made in Canada.
That brings me to clothing, nearly every piece of clothing now has to be hung up to dry, or it will shrink to nothing, clothing doesn't last!!! My husband had a winter jacket this year, that had to go back, the stuffing started coming out of it, just after normal wear. I bought a pair of leggings, pulled them on once, a hole!
And while I'm on a little rant, here's something that bugs me about blogs and Instagram - people that don't respond to your comments - I always try my best at that. And, on that note, I'll close this post!
