So the only way for a mom to cope with weekly grocery shopping with 4 soon to be 5 doodlebugs is?????? Yup, you guessed it, POPCORN CHICKEN!
So I enter Walmart every week and b-line it for the deli and order four popcorn chickens at $1.83. I have done this for four years! Today, however Walmart (my ex-friendly place) has decided to re-package the popcorn chicken in smaller containers. I noticed the difference, but said well it was bound to happen less popcorn chicken for the same price. Oh, me sooooo gullible. The deli lady fills four and then I go to grab the ones she already filled and put lids on. I hear the dreaded statement...
Ma'am' I have to "weigh" those. WHAT! "Weigh them?" I say "They are $1.83." "No, ma'am' we have to weigh them now." Whatever, o.k. weigh them. $2.64....$2.64...did you read that? $2.64!!!!!!! So my order went from 4 to 2 and a brief explanation to the doodlebugs what "snack" meant. I was totally bummed and it totally SUCKS! I hate inflation!
I intend on giving Walmart a "piece of my mind" at a later date. Man, I am so bummed!
