Dear God , I can't believe that you gave me the gift of parenthood. Please help me to do a good job.


My daughter and I drove to the store to buy groceries and the first thing that I needed to purchase were razors. Check out our conversation below.
Me...Which razors should we buy? Which one is the better value?
My Kid... I don't know.
Me... The one on the right has 12 razors in the package and the one on the left has 16 razors and the razors inside are exactly the same.

My Kid... The one on the right.
Me... The one on the right is $6.29 and the one on the left costs $2.27 now which one is the better deal.
My Kid ... The one on the right.
Me... No the one on the left is . Now if the one on the right costs $6.29 and the one on the left is $2.27 which one is the better deal.
My Kid... The one on the right.
Me...Which one would YOU buy?
My Kid ... The one on the right.
Me... Okay the one on the right has 12 razors and it costs $6.29 which is a full days wage for me and almost all of the poor South Africans combined and yet the one on the left has 16 razors SIXTEEN RAZORS and is cheaper now which one on the left is the better deal?
My Kid .... The one on the right.
Me...Thinking........ (I'm buying the ones on the left and I hope that they're good and sharp cause I'm going to kill myself with them.)
Me.... The one on the left is a better deal. Now which one do YOU think is a better deal?
My Kid... The one on the left?
Me.... YES , LET'S BUY THE ONE'S ON THE LEFT.
Me....Now let's see which box of tissues are the better deal.
Me....thinking ....( because I'm going to cry.)

I side with your daughter. Those store brand razors are not the same as some of the higher cost ones.

If razor A costs, say 25 cents, and you only shave your legs twice before throwing it away, and razor B costs .75 cents but you get 8 shaves, razor B becomes a better deal.

Now, of course, this means that you would have to buy every razor and test the longevity of the blade by actual use, meaning it would probably take you several years based on how often you shaved your legs and how many razors you had to test.

Naturally, careful record keeping would be essential and time consuming.

I use the hideously expensive Gillette Mach 3 and quit worrying about the cost because they last forever and feel lovely running up my long and gorgeous legs...heh!

My short stubby legs prefer the cheaper razors. hahahaha
Your so funny !

We can't even factor in the very basic of math skills.
Had we done a cost comparison on this level - the wise level that you had suggested then I would'a lost my mind and played car tag on the freeway.

BTW. Frizz-ease hair serum is great on your legs after you shave them. It's toxins probably settle in the deep recesses of your braiin cavety butt I can stil thinc prettie whale.
