"Consultants are sandburs."
They attach almost always without your conscious knowledge it is happening, then you realize it when they stick. Then removing one or several, use tweezers or pliers, to lessen the difficulty. It is not too long term a pain, seldom if ever fatal, but nuisance is a good single describing word.
Recycled sandburs, have you ever heard of that as a concept? Stealthy reattachment? Strange? Undesirable? Reattach ones after prior removal. Who would do that? How would it be brought about?
