Ah yes, you are thinking that this is a proverb about how I hate it when people get labeled.
Simply put, I hate labels on clothes, towels and washcloths. So I cut them off, sometimes. Why? They are scratchy against my neck. They stick out. The tell me how to wash it, which I already know. And once I figure out that it’s 100% cotton, I no longer need to know that. Finally, I don’t care what the brand is, as long as the quality is decent.
That last statement is not entirely true. Those of you faithful readers know that I do care about what brand my computer is.
And I do celebrate the move by many clothing companies to print their info on the garment, rather than having a separate sewed‐on label.
