Big problem is that joe average doesn't know he is getting ripped off, or is
afraid to take stuff back and just accepts the crap he getting. A few years
ago I went to a craft show. Another vendor was selling a toy just like one
I make at 1/3 the price of mine. One customer complained to me about my
price and showed me the one she had just pruchased from the other vendor.
It was already broken, mine has a 30 day warrenty on it, I showed her the
difference in quality. She bought mine but didn't take the broken one back
afraid to offend the other vendor. The key here is education and guts to
refuse to accept inferior products. Untill that happens we will have a
problem of getting more and more of lesser and lesser quality goods
Lot of times it's just the aggravation of having to load up the crap and
drive the distance and lug it into the store and wait in line and get the
fifth degree from the moron behind the register. All because a product
can't be made right or the idiots making it don't give a shit.

but you can't make them THINK"
Done that. I was in HD picking up something and needed some clear pine but
didn't want to drive all the way to my wood supplier for a couple of boards.
Went over to the wood racks and there was no clear pine being sold. But, I
looked at some pine in the #3 pine stack and there were 2 eight foot boards
without a single knot, no cupping, no warping. I picked them up and cashed
out. Probably paid a little more than my wood supplier would charge, but I
didn't have to burn gas nor take the time to get there.
