ThisIsDumb: 6.5 Foot High Clothes Hooks

At a Salvation Army Thrift Store, in Salem NH, the hooks in the changing room are 6.5 feet off the ground.

J. Godsey writes:

    “There is a perfectly good other wall AND the door to put hooks on. The average woman is what? 5.7 most of the ones I know are MUCH shorter I am 5′ my arm reaches 6′ – what were they THINKING?… I know it’s not exciting… but I thought it was a bit surreal.

Obviously they’re trying to encourage their less well-heeled clientele to reach higher in life. — BEN POPKEN
