MEC is the worst place in the world for an indecisive shopper like me to be.
Yesterday, I went for a “quick” shopping trip to pick up a few backpacking supplies and ended up spending 20 minutes looking at sporks. In fact, there’s an entire spork section! Do I want a titanium spork? No, because $21 is too much and I don’t plan to use it to break out of prison someday. Do I want a thin, light, plastic spork? Depending on the length of the fork-teeth, I would worry about it breaking in my bag. Too long and they becomes delicate, too short and I might as well opt for a spoon. What about a full cutlery set? Is that more appropriate? Will that weigh too much? What’s my name again? AAAAAAAHHHH!
My main question during this shopping adventure was: Why the hell is this Bear Grylls guy promoting so many murderous-looking hunting knives? They all look the same to me, yet each package has a different creepy image of his mud-slicked face and crazy eyes in the forest. It’s the stuff of nightmares. Apocalypse now!
(RAW update: I’ve reach 50% of my goal for GLIMPSE ticket sales! I have 8 days left to sell the remaining 10 tickets…want to help me meet my target? Click here! :) THIS shopping decision should be an easy one…! Need more convincing? Check out this article published earlier this year by Metronews!)
