Grocery Shopping With Scott Adams

Scott Adams view of what going shopping feels like:  http://dilbert.com/blog/entry/i_want_my_cheese/

I can relate on too many points...

Safeway recently launched an online coupon system up here, which I tried for a while because it seemed nifty.  I don't mind saving money, but actually tracking the paper coupons they give me is too much work (which I'm sure is why they do it).  But after a couple weeks I finally figured out that they were giving me "discounts" in my online coupon profile that were already available for everyone on the shelves (or at least anyone with a Safeway card).  Then I just felt manipulated...

So now I try to use my credit card when I shop there in hopes that whatever extra 2% fee they have to pay to Visa hurts.
