It's a conspiracy I tell ya!

I am a creature of habit. I'll find a favorite product and will use it exclusively. It has to be that type or brand and nothing else will do.

Same goes for restaurants. I have my favorite places and at each of those places I usually have a favorite dish or two that I order almost every time. Depends on the place, some places have a few more choices than others. But I am a picky eater. I find my faves and stick with them.

That is until people mess with me and screw up my whole system!

Why is it that when I find something I like and get in the habit of using it on a regular basis and decide I can't live without it, that is when the company decides they need to change things up? Can't they just leave well enough alone?

I am currently boycotting a certain sub sandwich place because of that reason. LOL Within the span of maybe two years, they changed their menu 3 times! I was upset each time........the first two I sucked it up, dealt with it and found a new favorite because my family liked the place. But the 3rd time I had had it and walked out pissed that they had changed it yet again. I can understand a few changes here and there, but the entire menu? And that often? Wouldn't you keep a few basic "core" choices? I mean come on, it's a sub place and they didn't even have a freakin' meatball sub to fall back on when they changed it up!

Right now I'm also in the process of trying to find a new favorite bra because I can't find the style I like anywhere anymore. I think I have found one. But really how long will my relationship last this time?

What is this world coming to?

I hate that too! I experience that at the grocery store quite frequently! :(

I don't know why a place would change things that often. most of us are creatures of habit. I would have walked out too. As far as the bra, try Body By Victoria. That has always been my fave, best fitting, best feeling. It's a bit pricey but worth the money, I tell ya.

I am the EXACT same way, a true creature of habit. I feel your pain! I get SO mad when I go to buy a product that I have always gotten before, only to find they no longer carry it, make it, or what not. SO frustrating!! Oh and the restaurant thing, ditto for me on that as well. I can name a slew of places and the ONE thing I will eat there! God forbid if they take it off the menu! I will literally sit there forever and stew over what I should order and then I am never happy with the *new* thing!
