While traversing the wonderful world of Costco with my wife, we happened upon a label maker. Because it was aggressively priced and looked pretty awesome, and my wife is devoted to all things related to organization and cleanliness, she wanted to buy it. So we did.

For nearly three years it sat in its packaging. "One day we'll get around to using the label maker," she said. But as time passed on, it was never cracked open. Until it was, and let me tell you, that thing is pretty awesome.

There's something to be said about a concise, professional, small, glossy strip of difficult-to-remove paper that screams "I've got it together". Now that might sound silly, but I have to admit, even though we didn't use the darn thing for a long time, the second I saw those angular, crisp labels around the house, I didn't have a smidgen of buyer's remorse. Not a smidgen.

As much as I enjoy my wife's use of the label maker, it's all a bit mundane and she hasn't gotten as creative with it as she can.

Unlike this woman walking around NYC with a damaged shoe.

At first glance, it doesn't seem like much: a sticker on top of a flat that looks a bit roughed up.

But a closer look revealed that the label offered a brief explanation for why her shoe looks the way it does.

"My dog chewed it."

That's right, people. She used a label maker to turn a perfectly good, if not slightly damaged, pair of flats into a secret easter egg of comedy. If you've ever commuted through the streets of NYC, you'll understand that it's the little things like this that brighten your day.

Turns out I wasn't alone in my admiration of this woman's inventive use of a label maker.

And several people related to the messed-up-shoe struggle that this woman is clearly suffering from. So much so that they began sharing photos of their own ruined kicks.

I don't know why dogs love chewing on shoes, but they just do.

Maybe it's because they're on the floor and easy to grab?

Or could it be that our footwear picks up all of the scents and life from the outdoors, and our animal friends with their keen senses of smell go on a miniature adventure every time they bite one of our sneakers or stiletto heels?

As it turns out though, this label-making genius was in good company when it comes to explaining why certain clothing items were ruined. This person detailed the stories behind the stains on this one shirt.

It's not just dogs who are guilty of chewing, either. Wascally wabbits are known to nibble on everything in sight.

But lets get real, dogs are probably the biggest culprits. It's hard to be mad at a face like that, though.

We all have our own clothing imperfections to deal with at the end of the day. Whether its stains, wear and tear, or food memorials.

What would your explanatory labels most likely say?
