Mr. Pickles would like to point out that before there was a Rollback, there was a Rollforward: these were $2.50 for ages, then $3.18 for a couple of weeks, and now just LOOK how they're ROLLING BACK PRICES! They just KEEP ROLLING THEM BACK!
Mr. Pickles does not consider this an acceptable "clearance" price. Target had these for $1.07. Now THAT'S a clearance price.
Nor is this an acceptable "clearance" price, particularly since Mr. Pickles just saw this same game on clearance at Target for $4.74.
Here is something that particularly aggravates Mr. Pickles: when an item is available and available and available, and then suddenly not available---not because of being discontinued, but because of, apparently, PURE WHIM. Walmart used to have the big cans of Contadina crushed tomatoes, but now they have only the puree. Mr. Pickles doesn't know how he's supposed to make chili without Contadina crushed tomatoes.
And THIS situation. One of the MAIN REASONS Mr. Pickles comes to Walmart is to buy these huge bottles of Tabasco sauce. They've been out of stock for weeks, with this empty shelf space just SITTING here. WTF. Mr. Pickles's spouse uses Tabasco like a beverage, and after the current bottle, and the next bottle, there is only one bottle left.
Fine, Mr. Pickles caves. He will buy the smaller sizes. But how can he compare the unit price when one size is unit-priced in ounces and the other is unit-priced in quarts? Nice workaround to a pesky legal requirement, Walmart.
Rolling back from $2.50 to $3.00. Mr. Pickles thinks someone forgot that step one of the "Rollback" was supposed to be Our Little Secret.
Well. Okay. This is pretty hard to complain about. This stuff usually costs over $3.00. Mr. Pickles buys five.
Mr. Pickles checks his receipt carefully. It is like a game, finding Today's Errors. Only one error this time: the balloons were marked $1.00 but rang up as $1.25. Mr. Pickles has seen worse.
