Look, let me first say that I am all for store brand items if they are of comparable quality to the well known brands. It's when they absolutely suck I get turned off.
I had a bit of an emergency and had to head out to Wal-Mart with the 3 kids in tow. I really didn't want to do it and my kids were not co-operative but it couldn't wait. I had run out of feminine supplies and while I consider myself a reasonably crafty mama, I was not willing to go handmade on this one.
To the store I went, moving as fast as I could since any one of the kids could have had an outburst at any moment. I was not in the mood for that nonsense. This would explain why I was tricked. I had managed to convince and squeeze all 3 of them in the shopping cart so I was moving pretty quickly. I went to the aisle, grabbed up my stuff, self-checked-out and headed home as quickly as I could.
It was when I pulled out my purchase from the bag that I realized what I had done. You know about the display tricks, where the store strategically places their own brand next to the "top" and in this case "better" brand? Well in all my rush they got me!
I talked myself into believing that it really can't be THAT bad right? I mean really. I knew one thing for sure, I was not heading back out, so they would just have to do.
Wooooo boy, listen, all I have to say is whether this happens to you accidentally or if you're trying to save a buck, this is one thing that isn't worth it. Even though we're all grown here, I will save you the gross details of this product failure, but warn you I must. These things are so uncomfortable and comfort, especially in such a sensitive area when you're already in a foul mood is a MUST. The last thing you need is for your business to be irritated.
Equate you got me for the 1st and last time. It is my fault because I didn't pay attention to what I was doing. I grabbed carelessly and I paid for that. Never again.
In the trash you go where you belong. 1 day of torture was enough
