Products getting smaller just so the companies making them spend less for each item - and increase the price anyway. Frozen pizzas you buy at the supermarket for example, they're definitely an inch or two smaller than they were a few years ago, and we still keep paying the same price - if we're lucky. I ran into another case today, as I went to buy a new belt. It was the same size as the old one... except it really wasn't. Putting both side by side, the new one is at least a good two inches shorter. So I lost three belt holes not to my own gluttony, but to some company who wanted to cut down on the leather. If you're going to make the belt two inches shorter, how about changing the number on it to something more accurate?
And that's your pointless random rant for the day.
