Anytime manufacturing is involved, there is always the chance of having an oddity or two come out of the process. Those screw-ups are usually tossed out, or re-done, so they don't see circulation. Despite the companies best efforts though, some do slip through that filtering process, and are sold on the market to consumers. Which isn't a bad thing if your talking about collectables, such as coins. Collectors love the error coins, and certain types can bring hundreds or thousands of dollars! However, on more used and depended on items, screw-ups are bad. Which brings me to the real reason I have started this thread.
Last night, around 12, I was tired, and so I put on a diaper before bed. However, after I had gotten it on, I realized it wasn't on quite right. So I adjusted it, but realized that the tapes on one side where a lot higher than the other, which caused the front to twist to one side. So thinking I must be tired and messed-up, I decided to just re-do it. After all, the tapes were quite re-fastenable. I undid the tapes, straightened it back out, and tried again.. Different result, but a smiliar problem. I tried it again a few more times, but no matter what I did, something was always wrong! It was mainly just too tight.. but I couldn't have made the tapes looser. Another problem was that it felt twisted, which caused me discomfort. Eventually, I gave up, and just threw the diaper across the room. Not wanting to admit defeat, I went to my hiding spot, and got another one. That one went on no problem at all.. I didn't even have to adjust the tapes.
So now that I'm awake, and have had time to think about it, I'm quite convinced there was something wrong with that diaper- like a factory screw- up. I looked at the diaper in question, and it looks like one of the sides that the tapes are attached to, was either too low, or shorter than the other side. I think that's why I couldn't get it to line up right. I have never run into this problem before.. or if I have, it wasn't bad enough for me to notice. I can still use it, but since the tapes now just barely stick, it's only good as a stuffer. It makes me mad though.. I paid $40 with shipping for these, and one is screwed-up.. I feel like I wasted money! I wonder if the company will do exchanges!?
