Smaller packaging Sucks . . .

I think by now most of have noticed the grocery store shrink ray.

You know how it works, the price stays the same, but the product size gets smaller.

Yes, it's frustrating, but. . .

Oh Dear.

Just don't leave a message like this one . . .

Wow! I understand the dilemma of trying to feed a large family; but I think this fella is a bit too distraught over it.

I mean; you know, put it in perspective. World hunger-smaller Jimmy Dean packages.

Hmmm...

Ha Ha! That is NOT for real. (Where do you find this stuff? lol)

2 dozen eggs and a Tee-Bone?

Big eaters!

Big eaters!

600 pounds of men, a woman who's a little, plump Scotsgirl, and a 13-year-old girl.

Fuck, I'm gonna eat, goddamm it!

The latest in our area is that they're trying to confuse us with soda packaging. They can't mess with the size of cans because all those vending machines couldn't deal with it. So...the 12-pks have become 8-pks, and the 24-pks have become 18-pks. It's hard to know what a "good" price is for soda now because the deals change all the time. But I think that overall I'm paying what I used to pay for the smaller sizes.

I guess that comment about diet soda wasn't really equal to a rant about sausage, now was it?

I meant "larger sizes," not "smaller sizes."

Sigh.

He was actually doing very well on his complaint until the very end there... the end just goes over the edge..... heh

I think he forgot the tape was still running :)

Nothing like taking out one's frustration with the world on the poor Jimmy Dean people. I guess it just became a symbol of "what is wrong with America today" for him.

Sadly, I am related to people who would say things exactly like that. Seems a bit emotionally overwrought to me though.

Oh my!

Ice cream. Same price or higher, but now with less.

Not that I need it anyway....
