many of us have noticed in recent years how the packaging has gotten 10 % smaller on many food products the price increased too. no inflation, nothing to see here... Now, in the last two weeks, i have experienced a new, at least for me, way to increase margins and trick the masses. I opened a bottle of melitonin... must admit did not compare my purchase with my previous until after opening.. i still had the old bottle of 125 with a couple pills left. the new bottle was at least 2 times larger, it had two !!! massive balls of cotton, not the usual one. It is only 20 % filled. and the count was 104... voila!!!...much larger packaging, much less product...no inflation!!!!
sorry my rant must continue
so within days i open a box of instant hot chocolate packets...it has room for 8, there are only 4 packets...same price...no inflation
and again...yesterday...i opened a box of, individually wrapped ,oatmeal cookies..the fu fu supposed healthy, and its ORGANIC, crap my wife insists on buying, it had three cookies, the box was designed for 6 !!!!!...NO INFLATION HERE>>>MOVE ALONG
I am 72 orbits old, i have seen a lot, JFK, MLK, RFK, i went to the illegal war, Vietnam, i have never seen anything, time, like this..corruption and blatant cheating is in your face...Trump leads the way and business is more than happy to follow...
in the past politicians and business at least hid their bullshit.... oh well...i will be dead soon enough...fornicate em!!!!
