I’m always telling people ‘you get what you pay for’ and ‘cheap and good don’t mean the same thing’, but WalMart gets me too everytime.
Last time it was 3 shirts (that fit ME!) for $17. I put one on before I drove home from PG, and when I got ready for bed, there was this stringy thing attached when I took my pants off. When I dropped the old drawers, the entire stitching on the side came out, and I had this wrap-around thingie about as sexy looking as Fat Bastard pulling a slit skirt over his head.
Just finished the laundry and the next one turned into this giant ball of thread around the spindle, and I don’t even have a cat to give it to.
One lasted four hours, one lasted a week.
Just like the 3 $26 DVD players they sucked me in for. One lasted 2 weeks, one 4 months. My son hawked the other so we’ll never know.
That’s why they have roll-backs. The products have a half-life. They have to stay open 24-7 to move things out the door. If they closed for the weekend, half the stock would be piles of dust Monday morning…
