When I am using a Q-Tip to clean out my ears, and the ends of the stick, you know, the fluffy cotton parts, come off from the lollipop stick! I HATE THAT! Cuz then it gets all loose and ragged, sticks to your ear canal, stops working and generally sucks.
I thought they sonicly [sp?] welded those things to the little rod … how can they come off? I’m sure they get lots of complaints about them, but do they do anything besides push the idea of ‘use one that isn’t fubar’d’ ? Sure, that works, but it’s kind of wasteful on the Q-Tip resources — especially when a person doesn’t buy their own.
That Q-Tip falling apart … Jesus, that irritates the shit out of me.
