To be really offended by this company name?

NC'd in case DH identifies me but long time poster.
I've been checking off this month's joint account bank statement and came across a payment to a company called 'Bigger Jugs' - turns out it sells home brew stuff so no surprise who its target demographic probably is.
I am feeling surprisingly annoyed that such a name is indelibly listed on our bank statement and that someone I thought was a feminist, and has 2 daughters, actually ordered from this website.

Am I being oversensitive? Would you bring it up with your DH?

I (gently) think YABU. It would make me feel a bit...ughh...

But it is just a mildly amusing name designed to attract attention.

It's a childish pun that would make me roll my eyes, but I couldn't be bothered about it being on a bank statement.

I'm assuming the thread is a joke

There's a shop in Dublin called Knobs and Knockers - it sells door hardware. I've never known anyone to be offended by it! It's mildly amusing and importantly, memorable.

We use that company occasionally. It's a silly name, and, yes, a bit outdated, cliched and tacky, but honestly, I can't get worked up about it. As long as they're not sending sexist stuff with my order, then can call themselves whatever they want!

Yes you can be offended - but it screams volumes about you.

I was amused when I travelled through Shropshire to Wales and passed through a little village called Knockin. The local shop was called 'The Knockin Shop' !!

Can you start up your own Little Richard merchandising company and bombard them with your 'Smaller Dicks' pamphlets? grin

I'm suspecting this is a covert Christmas advert for Bigger Jugs!

I'd be embarrassed if this was on my bank statement.

I’m all over feminism stuff and will fight for women’s rights with my dying breath, but I seriously cannot get worked up about this.

It’s kind of clever for a brewing company 😳🤷‍♀️

You’re obviously taking the piss.

I have seen several cleaning companies called OCD cleaners. That offends me.

This not so much. 🤷‍♀️

Better hope he doesn't buy something from French connection, i imagine seeing that on your statement would probably tip you over the edge

YouSawThePlans Mon 09-Dec-19 12:02:07

I can't imagine ever being embarrassed by a bank statement. . . no-one sees them. Nobody in the bank cares.

I love big jugs 😂😂

Who remembers Knobs and Knockers ?

littlepaddypaws Mon 09-Dec-19 12:07:28

i call my three male members of my dh's family 'door handles' because they are all mysonistic knobs. grin.
does your bank know you are a feminist op ? no thought not,they wouldn't care any way.

You need to concentrate on what really matters. Are its products competitively priced?

It's your husband who I feel sorry for, sounds like his house is so much fun and that he's being kept under a very tight leash.
