Day 358 – 24th December – Pressing home the un-needed.

Day 358 20181224

The family visits for Christmas have started but to be able to complete them tomorrow I had to fill up with petrol after today’s journey. This game me the opportunity to do a last minute scout in one of the shops attached to the filling stations and I was rather surprised to see this on sale. It’s a device for sqeezing your teabag, or a teabag press as it’s been called here. My question is why does something like this even exist. How hard is it to squeeze a teabag against the side of a cup. Is this something that we really need or is this a case of creating something that people think they need when they don’t.
