I'd like to wish a happy fish-whacker to the jaw of the marketing wizard who decided to force larger quantities in products than necessary. Case in point, electric toothbrushes. Several models like the Sonicare ones need to have the brush replaced on six month intervals. That's fine, but then you have to buy a pack of two to get them. You can't find a pack of one, and these buggers are spendy, so you sport out 25 bucks to get two, replace a head, then put one in the drawer. Six more months pass, you need to replace the head, and you either forget you already have one or you've lost it. So off to the store for another 25 bucks. I need to replace ONE you maggots, not TWO. If you force my quantities to be larger than I require, you deserve to be held in contempt.
