Let Me Cast My Absentee Ballot After the Fact

I'm not sure where I was when the following things were voted into society and I'm pissed.  Let the record state that I do not support any of these decisions and I expect a full reversal, effective next week.

a)  5 pound bags of sugar are now 4 pounds- and it took me a while to figure this out.  I have no idea if they are charging the same amount or less, but I'm certain they are taking advantage.

b)  8 ounces of yogurt has now become 6 and sometimes 5.5 ounces- did they think we couldn't feel the different size of the new containers?

c)  'uniform' shirts at grocery stores and drive throughs are now sloppy t-shirts-  I expect to see a collar and some sort of dreadful polyester attire on the teenager handling my food, not a too big t-shirt that makes them look like they're off to the beach.  This is only the first step in the dismantling of all uniforms and pretty soon, people will be working in 'regular clothes' and we'll never know who's in charge.

d)  everything coming in 100 calorie packs-  what if I want a snack but not a whole 100 calories at that time?  That's quite presumptuous, don't you think?

  1. I can't stand the smaller containers trick. You do get less product and spend just as much. It's caused me to switch brands on some items.


I love comments almost as much as I love summer. I reply to all comments except those ridiculous anonymous comments offering me dirty deeds and real estate. When you leave your comment, please make sure your own settings will allow me to reply to you. Nothing makes me sadder than replying to your comments and then realizing it’s going to the no-reply@blogger address!
