The local Fry’s Foods is a smorgasbord of people watching. A few days ago, I was in the mood for beer, so I maundered in the alcohol aisle. In front of the cooler with the microbrews and imports was a gentleman (and that is a loose interpretation) who was idling in front of the good US micros. I watched him hem and haw for a few minutes.
I could almost see him thinking out loud: “I have $12, I can get a six pack of really good micro brew. Or, I could get a 12 pack of a reasonable import. What shall I buy?”
Of course after wavering and standing in front of where I wanted to look for a few minutes, he walked over and bought a 30 pack of Miller Lite. Obviously quantity won out over quality.
I hope I am never that person.
