Previously I have written about 50% off meat in fact Michael James has even asked if Cut Rate Meat is Safe , and my wife and I have expanded our cut rate shopping to the 50% off rack of various goods that our local grocer has, and enjoy getting some treats for a very cheap price, but would you trust half price condoms ?
Our grocer has in fact made it very easy to see the items he has slashed the prices on, as the product usually has a triangular flaming pink label with the words 50% Off emblazoned on it, so there is no danger you might miss these good bargains. Typically these items are about to reach their best before date , so you are taking a little chance here, but so far we have not run into any issues with any of these products (even the meat).
A few days ago we had to run in to get one or two things, and I needed Anti-perspirant, so we went up the aisle that this product is on, and it is next to the Family Planning section of the small pharmacy in our local grocers. I quickly chose a manly smelling fragrance, OK, I found the cheapest one I could find but then noticed something odd out of the corner of my eye.
A large 50% Off label on boxes of Condoms
I’ll let that one settle in for a second, yes it was not just one box it was a group of about 8 boxes of various condoms that were 50% off. Half price condoms, is this a good idea ?
Who, in the name of Dr. Spock (the baby doctor, not the Star Trek guy) would rely on birth control that they picked up for 50% off? I leave this as a question to my good readers, would you trust 50% off condoms? Would you buy them for your kids?
Be prepared, I have the ultimate story that my friends know, but my good readers have only had me hint at, that may come out one day, about my Failed Vasectomy, so NO I would not trust cut rate Condoms, ever!
