We can keep it on for however long we want, thank you very much.

Festival season has arrived again, and everyone who doesn't go to one has to endure one thing.

And it's not your friend Doug talking about how "insane" it all was.

The general consensus on social media is that they all need to be destroyed immediately.

Take your Glastonbury wristbands off guys. It honestly impresses nobody keeping them on.

Commence Operation Cut Off Everyone's Wristband As Soon As They Leave

#Glastonbury is over.. So please take off your wristbands.

But wearing a wristband is actually a delightful thing to do weeks after a festival has come to an end, and it is really quite wrong to judge people for wearing one.

4. You might think that many wristbands is just us showing off our trip to others, but that's not true.

Most of us don't even notice that you've noticed us wearing them, to be honest.

6. And having memories on your wrist feels so much nicer than having them deep in your mobile phone.

"Hey guys let's look manually through your photo album to rejog our memory."

7. And when you cut the strap, it's like deleting you're the memory, when you're not ready to let go.

9. Why does cutting it off feel like failure?

Finally having to cut off my festival wristbands for work 😩😭@fiberfib @Creamfields @DetonateUK

This is especially true if you have worn a wristband for a number of years.

12. And it's not like it's easy to forget that you've cut it off either. The tanline reminds you of your LOSS.

Finally cut all my festival wristbands off from 2012 until now. It is a sad day 😔

And nobody cops off with a person with a cut off festival wristband.

13. And just look at that wristband. When it's cut off it doesn't look like the wristband you had at all.

Not many things more profoundly depressing than the moment you cut off your @GlastoFest wristband #Glasto2015

So give us some slack you know? We're trying our hardest.
