We had someone call us today (020 8861 3149) who wanted advice on which type of earplug would be best for them.
This is always a tricky one for us at Snorestore, as, with the best will in the world, we don’t know without seeing the person in situ what the noise level is they’re being exposed to, how sensitive they are to noise, or how big (or small) their ear canals are.
Undaunted, we will do our level best to come up with a solution. Makes sense, huh? We’re a business after all.
Today Fred suggested to our caller that a Women’s Sample Pack would be the best place for her to start her quest for a suitable earplug to drown out the noise of her partner’s snores. Her response? “Earplugs for wimmin? That’s soooo sexist!”
If it’s sexist to say that most men are stronger than most women, most men are taller than most women, most men weigh more than most women, then yes, dear caller, it’s absolutely sexist to have a sample pack of earplugs designed for women, by women. Because like it or not, most women have smaller and shorter ear canals than men. And not surprisingly, the Women’s Sample Earplugs Pack is the first port of call for any woman coming to the Snorestore website who’s fed up with her noisy partner depriving her of her sleep.
Sexist, my arras.
