Of toil and sin
Your head grows bald

#6 Juast look at Grapefruit Juice if you can find any. The container has been 3.99 for a long time, But it shrunk from 64 ounces to 52 ounces about a year ago, they simply made the bottle neck slightly longer and the bottle slightly thinner. And still charge the same price for less product. Thats a stealth 22% price increase, more or less.

#7 Business 101: The only justification for a corporate structure above the established production facilities is to constantly increase profits.
The people at the plant don't need a bunch of guys in an office building making (bad) decisions for them; once you hit the extent of economy of scale limits, all that's left is basically a Monopoly game.

#8 It was bound to happen at this time. Because I have to wear a mask every time I leave home, I have stopped shaving everyday. The only time I really have to shave is when I want to make my wife happy.
