16.9 is the new 20…

I paid a visit to my friendly Payless grocery store this evening to pick up a 6 pack to refresh my pepsi stash, this is something I do every week or two.

Walking down the aisle to the regular spot where the small bottles in a plastic holder are usually kept, I noticed that they seemed farther down the line. 

But no, they were in the same place as always, they only seemed farther away because they were smaller!

Smaller as in 16.9 ounces instead of the usual 20 ounce plastic bottles, and about .25 cents more expensive.

So, I guess that the Bush voodoo economics model has hit home; provide less for more, but make it seem to be not so bad by using a little sleight of hand trick. Smoke and mirrors if you will.

I just hope that the same trickery isn’t being done at the gas pumps, that a gallon is still an actual gallon, not a quart on steroids.

I suppose I will now have to refer to Payless as Paymore, or maybe Getless.

Crap, it really started out to be a nice day.
