Yeah but if you can get the exact same product at Walmart for half of what the Mom and Pop sells it...<quoted text>
No point fighting them because the vast majority of human beings don't think beyond right now. They just do what is easy. Saving for something a little more expensive and of better quality, thus longer lasting isn't a priority for the impatient. We live in a disposable society. Just enjoy the landfill.
Not everybody is made of money! It's either buy it at Walmart or do without it for many people.
What would you do?
