Actually you didn't *have* to do any such thing. You *chose* to forgo the sale price, a choice (for whatever it's worth) I agree with. The difference? When you choose to do something, you have the power to make whatever choice works for you and that you believe in. If you *had* to leave it on the shelf, you did not operate from choice. No power in that, is there?<quoted text>
I went to the coop this evening and they had a sale on Barilla pasta by the case. Sixteen pounds for $11.50. Alas, I had to leave it on the shelf.
There's power in telling Barilla to shove their attitude even if you're the only one who understands that.
