So a few years ago, I was shopping with my wife and she found what must have been the most beautiful sweater ever made. The color and fabric were perfect for me; it was cool! I know this because those were her exact words. Anyway, I tried it on and found it to be a little itchy. "Don't worry about it," my wife replied, "that will go away after a few washings, besides, it's on sale!" Well, guess what, it's been washed 10 to 15 times by now, and though it still looks cool, the thing continues to itch like crazy. I purchased something I really liked, but was less than happy with so I could save money.
