Decling Product Quality, The Karen Feedback Loop

Post by Bruce »

1. Karen can't resist an On Sale sign. In fact, it's a perfect day for Karen when all the items in her shopping cart are on sale. Karen will buy things On Sale, even if no on in the family needs or wants said items.

2. Items often go on sale because they are shitty products that no one wants to buy, thus a surplus. The shittier the item, the greater the surpkus, and the higher the %OFF.

3. Items that are 75% off, or more, triggers a Karen stampede.

4. Sales notices the sudden uptick on items they thought were failed products. Instead of canceling production, they increase it....triggering another surplus, and another On Sale.

5. Repeat steps 1 to 4 until irate husbands like me notice we've had shelves full of plain Utz potato chips, bags of sharp cheddaer cheese, and cabinets stuffed with Oat Bread that nobody eats. Ever. Some are weeks past expiration. In fact, I've thrown away mouldy bags of these items. that haven't even been opened.

No. NO! You are banned. BANNED I SAY. From buying these products ever again. This sickness must end.

But they're always on sale, she says.

:bang_head:

So I went food shopping this weekend, and like some sort of horror movie, I notice a disturbing number of the same shitty products in the carts of other Karens. Boldly, I approach one of them and ask if her family likes these products.

"I don't know. They're on sale, so that's what they get."

:HairRaising: :HairRaising:

Have you ever just wanted to drop everything and go searching for a doorway to the dimension i which you belong? I'm pretty sure that's why I'm re-watching The Fringe series. I don't belong here. Flavored water doesn't exist in MY dimension.

Luxury! We got moldy bread from the "day old" store at the bakery! Scraped the mold off and had that for dinner!

Bruce has it easy. We drank water that came out of the tap and we were grateful to have it!

Mold? Scraped off?

Elite bastards. Mold was what we had got Christmas dinner, if we were lucky.

And for soda pop we got the fizzy water from Grandma's home-canned beans.
