Bargain-bin tie atrocities.

Some plonker at House Of Fraser decided to throw a group of ties in a 70%-off bargain bin along with a t-shirt whose selling point was velcro-backed, detachable, letters of the alphabet. Several of the t-shirts letters had come off and stuck to tie, almost literally ripping them to shreds.  There were sseveral ties of a single style that I wanted, but every single one of them was torn or frayed.  They weren't even worth the 70% off price - and that was laughably cheap. I'm not sure why this incident infuriated me so much; I suppose just because it was so fucking dumb and that no-one seemed to care nice objects were getting destroyed. What's even more insulting is, the t-shirt that buggered them up was a piece of gimmicky crap. Edit: I did find a nice Hackett tie, £20 instead of £50.  I also got a Daniel Hechter one for £4.50.

I really, really, really hate when people ruin good clothes. I have found many things like that in thrift shops, so I feel your pain.
