SHOP YOUR BOOTY

Ok, I’ve said it – I hate shopping. Quick, confiscate my queer eye card cause I don’t want it anymore.

First off, they never have my size. I need a small or medium and those sizes are always sold out; and the only sizes left are XL or XXL. Now common sense should tell store executives that since the smalls and mediums sell out immediately, they should order more to begin with – but no, the stores end up with racks of clearance XLs and XXLs marked down to 59 cents.

This is just another example of corporate America gone amuck. Stores lose major dollars ordering all those discounted XLs that they are forced to jack the prices up for everything else to make a profit. I’m sorry, but it’s basic economics, fat people don’t buy fashionable clothes – thin people do, so order more smalls and medium clothes for thin people.

And another thing, why do stores have 10 checkout lanes, but only 2 people working? What the hell is that all about?

Finally, I just don’t get Whole Foods – who in their right mind would pay $4 for lettuce and $12 for chicken. Absurd.
