Grocers They Think Us Stupid Perhaps [View all]

I put this on Facebook and would like to see if any of you feel as concerned as I do about this.

I would like to know if anyone on here is upset at what they see at the grocery store? I went to Safeway today (but could be any grocery store here). I'm in So. Oregon. Everything is smaller in size. I purchased those Jello pudding cups that always came in six portions but now 4. The Ritz cracker box is at least a 1/3 smaller. The barbeque bottle is at least a 1/3 smaller. Everything now has been affected. Our dollar is going to go far less now. It started with the 1/2 gallon ice cream that isn't any longer. Pretty soon we will not be able to buy groceries as the amount we are getting is much smaller in product but the price we are paying is either the same as the larger size or more. Next the gallon of milk and the loaf of bread will be smaller. We need to go on strike for at least a week or even two. People need to stand outside the stores with signs demanding they stop what they are doing. It's robbery from families mouths. Okay off my soapbox but how do others feel about this? This can and will get serious as they continue to up the prices for fewer and fewer oz. Okay I know lets buy lettuce and other produce but watch the carrots will be shorter and forget the celery there will be only two stalks. I just kept shaking my head and two other shoppers said it is truly crazy at what we are seeing. It is extremely noticeable now. They either think we are just stupid or they don't give a damn. Probably the latter so I say strike. No business...they lose...(stock up on beans and other non perishables before you strike)...oh oh oh....it is getting scary out there.
