Its just a Pair of Shorts!!! or is it?



August 04, 2011 – Comments (2)

Woo Hoo I bought a pair of shorts for a real cheap price!!!  yaaaaay!!!!
So why am I actually deeply disturbed over this instead?

Cause this wasn't selling shorts for a 10% discount....or 20%....
This was an insane mark down beyond epic poportions!

The reality is this.... If I can buy a pair of shorts for nearly the price of a toothbrush
then what does that mean?  Am I just thinking too deeply here?

No... I am not.

The dollar is sinking / crashing in value before our eyes......freaking out the markets today.

But on top of a sinking/crashing dollar is that retail stores can not sell goods anymore for fair value.
Instead they are selling merchandise for insanely cheap prices....

And the merchandise isn't what it used to be either...

The Pair of Shorts felt...well....lacking in material.  Maybe just by imagination but one thing we do know is Food manufacturers will cut the size of their bag of potato chips to improve margins.

They will give you a jar of 30 pickles instead of 50.....all for same price of the used to be 50 pickles in their jar.

Food companies save.....    Well.... Why wouldn't Clothing companies? 

Skimp on Polyester...Cotton....whatever .....therefore being able to sell the pair of shorts for a price not much greater than  Toothbrush.

How would you feel really?  YAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   I got a pair of shorts for an insanely cheap price!!!!!!

Or....   Dear God?
