So Jesse Jackson and I smoked a blunt, walked into the office of the Meijer General Manager and chanted "Hey hey, ho ho, $40 Cub Trunks are a ripoff, Yo" Our persistence paid off, and he gave them to me for $25.
Not really. The market at work. They weren't moving at $40. They weren't moving at $30. BUT, alas, they came down to $24.99. So, I snatched them up.
Back when they were languishing at $30, I sent the link to the post below to update my Uncle, who has been following the Cub Trunk Chronicles quite closely. As to the $30 price, he made this observation:
"Make sure your size doesn't disappear.....yeah, I know, I missed the point. LOL!"
Now, he was joking, of course... but he made a good point, maybe unknowingly. Fear of potential scarcity could lead to an increase in demand. In fact, that was a large reason as to why I pounced today. I could wait until they go down to $19.99, but the chances that they will be gone quickly at that price pushed my demand up for them a bit higher.
And ladies.... I look goooood in them. Hopefully since my Cubs have dropped three of their last four this will bring some good Karma.
