A pressing matter of equality

 

Sir, – My husband’s shirt costs €4.75 to dry clean. My shirt (defined as a “blouse” because it is a woman’s item of clothing) costs €11.70. I’m pleased to say my shirt is a fraction of the size of his shirt, so why am I being charged a multiple of what his is paying? – Yours, etc,
