I revised my title for yesterday’s post: I had titled it Dog Food Ripoff, but I realized that a rip-off is a type of fraud, and clearly, dog food, even if very poor value for money from a quality perspective, fulfills peoples’ needs for speed, convenience, low-odor, minimum time investment, etc. , when it comes time to feed their animals. So, it was a misnomer to call it a rip-off.
Many things that appear to be of poor value to some, are great value to others; fast food being an excellent example. In my opinion, it’s shit; but others love it for it’s speed, taste, convenience, and low cost. It’s all a matter of how you define “value”.
