Yesterday after making a purchase in a grocery store I looked in the case where cigarettes are kept. The bottom rack contained ovulation predictor kits. Does anyone else think this is curious?
It does seem an odd location. Behind the cashier is it? Easy to hand for that cashier when asked for it? Still seems very odd to me.
The cigarette case is in the very front of the store; everyone passes it on their way out. If you purchase one of these kits or a pack of cigarettes the clerk must walk half way down the store, unlock the case then reverse the process and finish the check out process.
A small, light expensive product that is embarrassing to buy being put in a locked container where you must pay for it as soon as you touch it? I'm so confused
Although I am a bit confused as to their product placement but my main confusion is about the title OP, why would you consider a product placement mistake as a war against a gender?
I can't speak for tireless, but perhaps he is wondering why a harmless test must be under lock and key? Maybe it wasn't a mistake in product placement, but intentional, and if so, why? Cigarettes cannot be sold to minors, so it makes sense for that product. Is someone concerned that a minor might pee on a stick? Makes no sense.
The local storekeeper keeps the sweets behind his counter because the Kids kept stealing them, do you think he is advocating a war on children?
I think a war on children would be very effective and mostly justified. They are small and weak, easily defeated with little effort. They are also needy, loud, demanding, troublesome and sticky, reason enough to either attack them or drop them in a soupy tub.
( I know I will get my backside kicked for this but I cant resist it)
Sounds like a few women I have dated.............
I don't care how sexist it may sound, it is a preemptive strike because one of the "fairer" sex would say it about us, sounds like all women to me - except the sticky part. If women were sticky more often perhaps we would be happier with them. Wow, nothing like pushing all the buttons marked "Do Not Push." If things get dicey, I have a retort prepared and it incorporates the ubiquitous "Mind the Gap."
Somethings used to be personal, private, not something you wanted the whole world to shout.
The main reason for ovulation predictor kits is to help with infertility. The media tells us women want free birth control. We have built a whole health care system around birth control, at least that is when media says. The fertility rate in western nations is so low there won't be any westerner in the near horizon. Won't be many Chinese; there aren't too many women and the one child only policy has taken such a foot hold now they can have two children one is still preferable. To be a mother is not a highly respected profession these days. Since, women are the only humans who can naturally create babies that's a sad state of thinking.
I would have said all this when I started the forum, but it was too early in the morning. Thanks for asking I was hoping someone would.
Smoking and sex are always linked or haven't you watched enough movies from the '40s.
It's simply a high priced item that is more likely to be stolen. They must not have a locked case near the phamacy where this item would usually be stored. Quite often stores keep things like meds and baby formula at customer service b/c they are less easily stolen, but are not easy to store in a case. It's just theft prevention. And I don't really get the title either.
Oh come on, we all know what is going on. The store owner and/or manager is obviously a Republican bound to carry out orders from Republican leaders on high to fight the war on women, every store is a battleground and the Republicans are genetically enslaved to fight this war on women until every battle is won by them. The goal? No goal they just hate women, children and the elderly, want to poison the water and destroy the earth with global warming...they are evil. We all know this, don't you listen to the President? Well he is on tonight, tune in and he will explain this to you (but don't watch on Fox news, they will only broadcast a caricature of the man).
Uhh, TT appears to be from California. Is there even one Republican in that god-forsaken state to stamp on any women they see? Personally, I doubt it; no self respecting person would live there, let alone an honest-to-god Republican!
No Republicans in California. Next state election will be Dems fighting Dems. Lots of TEA party, but they are certainly not Republicans, not in this state.
I'm sorry for you. Really, I am, but would you please keep those crazy liberals from escaping the nut hatch, moving to Idaho because of it's different lifestyle, and then trying to turn it into another California?
I am just grateful that lefties haven't decided that farm living is the life for them. Indiana is mostly safe, we keep our lefties on a preserve, where they belong.
Many stores keep things in small, locked, plastic boxes that will set off the alarm as they come close to the exit. Men are always walking up to me handing me a box of condoms to unlock for them. They don't seem embarrassed at all, they seem kind of proud actually, but I am always a little embarrassed. The worst is when he looks like he's 13 and I just want to tell him to come back in 10 years when he knows what he's doing.
Things are generally locked up if they are being stolen or are expensive. But they only way to know the reason for this store would be to ask.
I know one of the managers there it would embarrass he terribly. I also know one of the pharmacist, Asking would be a good idea. The pharmacist would know. I would have expected that sort of thing in the pharmacy in the first place. Thanks for the suggestion.

History of product placement in the cinemabelieve me ,if you jam advertising down their throats and pack their eyes and ears with it ,you will build up a resentment that will in time damn your business.

"Solving that conundrum exposes one of the ugly little secrets of the Republican right today — and one of many reasons why that movement no longer merits the honorable title of "conservative." For what we can now observe in practice is that the Republicans perversely prefer a...

I know, I know: is Newt Gingrich even relevant anymore? But many are thinking the fact that Gingrich is being forced into a non-interventionist position to hope to stay relevant shows something: the tide is turning, and people are starting to get sick of war. This is good news!I think there are a...

I read this was true and I just have to know if it is, please! Please provide links to prove what you say. Surely we are not going to be aborting babies ready to come into the world fully developed and healthy?

The Republicans are poised to control The House. Pelosi's out of a job but I have a feeling that Boehner's gonna have to wrench that gavel from her skinny, talon-like hands. The Republicans won senate seats in AL, AR, FL, GA, IN, OH, OK, KY, KS, LA, MO, ND, SC, NH, SD.It's more than a...
