It was a waste of energy to produce it, a waste of fuel to deliver it to a store, a waste of someone’s time to put it on a shelf, and a waste of our money to buy it, but I guess someone made money all along the way until it was purchased, and that was reason enough to manufacture it.
We have a couple of other glass measuring cups that we can still use after a decade or more of years, but I guess modern technology is unable to make reliable new ones anymore. At least they have managed to make a label on the bottom of the cup, that holds up.
What a waste.
