Those little strings to keep tops on hangers are the bane of every girl's life

Useless yokes.

OF ALL THE annoying things women have to deal with on a daily basis, these thing are the most bothersome.

Their purpose, we gather, is to keep clothing on hangers. What they actually do is make you want to tear your hair out with annoyance.

At first you’re like, “Oooh, this is dead handy!”

Keeping things on hangers! That is good, right?

But then you’re fighting to keep them tucked away out of sight

Why are they so CONSPICUOUS. Why aren’t they the same colour as the top? So many questions.

Yet no matter how vigilant you are, there’s always one peeking out of the neck/a sleeve

And ruining your fecking selfies, too.

There’s nothing more humiliating than getting caught in one


You cut them off out of sheer annoyance, and realise the top will never hang up again

Seriously...why?!? #peekaboo #intheway #hangerstraps #1stworldproblems

So you learn to live with them, or live without them

Personally? We cut them off straight away. But this is a choice every woman must make for herself. Good luck.
