FTFA: "suspect said he made $90,000 in six months"  Headline comprehension fail, subby.

That's not shocking or even Florida worthy, hell they had to lock up yeast treatment tubes and other shiat here in atlanta because people would rake them into a buggy and run out the door. Then go sell them at the flea market, scumbags.
 
2013-04-20 09:32:53 AM
That shiat's expensive. So Tide and babby formula are the new cash for teh poors?

When my son was first born, we started getting coupons in the mail for baby stuff like diapers and formula.  Several of the formula companies would mail us coupons for free (or really cheap) formula every month.  But almost always when the coupon thing arrived, the little envelope thing had been opened and the actual coupon had been removed, leaving only the part with my address on it.  At first I thought it was just something that happened by accident, like the coupon was getting ripped out when the mail was being sorted by those machines in the post office.  But at least twice a month for more than a year, we would get empty formula coupon envelopes.  Only a few times did they actually get delivered with the coupon attached.  I always wondered if my mail carrier or someone in the post office was stealing my coupons.  I didn't really mind, since we didn't use formula anyway, but it pissed me off that someone was stealing my mail.

It's still 180k a year.  I've already considered it.  Not a fan of jail, though.

Jeebus H. Nixon Christ on Rollerblades? Since when did Baby Chow get that expensive?

Seriously, it's farking expensive to pop a sprog... I'll stick with my cat, thanks.
 
2013-04-20 09:44:53 AM
Yeah, that stuff ain't cheap. The grocery stores around here have little plastic things hanging down from the shelf above the formula. They're inside some kind of track so you can slide them apart enough to make an opening wide enough to get one can off of the shelf at a time. Kind of a PITA, but I can see the point of it.

I'm just glad I'm done buying that stuff and have been for nearly two years, and glad I had a Costco membership when I was buying it.
 
2013-04-20 09:47:21 AM
police saw 117 baby formula cans worth about $2,388.89 behind the front seats

That's a great approximation. You have mad maths skills.

It's better for the baby, and far less expensive, if you breast feed your crotch fruit.
 
2013-04-20 09:50:59 AM
Ridiculous. Who needs to buy the baby formula? It's already free and here it is for the uninitiated: sperm + egg integrated over the interval t from 0 to 9 months = baby.

Is this the China Import thread?  I'm in FL so the Sentinel redirects me to the paywall.

That stuff is big black market goods for Chinese mothers.  None of them want to buy local - what with all the lead and whatnot in the product.  UK and US formulas are highly regarded.
 
2013-04-20 10:00:59 AM
Formula is way too expensive.

We get our at Sams and its still ~$30 for a large box that might last a little over a week...

We started out on breast milk but that only lasted a couple of month until she had problems producing....
 
2013-04-20 10:01:56 AM
We should be thankful that the criminals have baby formula to steal. It's nearly eradicated illicit breast milk "nip joints." Which makes me wonder why there isn't a government revenue tax on baby formula. The alcohol makers want it as a sort of tit-for-tap.
 
2013-04-20 10:05:34 AM
Raid any flea market/swap meet on any given weekend and you'll find vendors selling stolen formula, over the counter drugs, Tide detergent, condoms, razors/blades, deodorant, etc.

==================

True.  Tide laundry detergent is a popular shot lifting item around here.
 
2013-04-20 10:09:20 AM
Why the fark would they divulge that information to the police. Now they'll be charged with theft worth 90k+ USD rather than that single incident. How farking moronic can you be.

I wonder how fun it is to be jailed while addicted to pain medication. Will they help you cut down, or is it just cold turkey for them?

I'd be a little pissed off that somebody was selling that level of personal info to marketers. Now that I'm on the verge of geezerhood, somebody (I'm looking at YOU, state of California) is telling marketers that I'm a candidate for Depends, long term care insurance, and burial plots.

All that suggests to me is that it has become nearly impossible to afford being poor. Really, when you can't afford condoms and deodorant, there is a problem.

Then again, if ~47 million people can't afford to eat (that's the number on food stamps), then I guess it isn't surprising. But it is farked up.

I watched a lady in a business suit return two cans of baby formula WITHOUT a receipt at a Walgreens. The clerk allowed her to do so and exchange them for two ice cream bars and a pack of cigarettes. AND she had to pay about $.40 extra to for that.

I knew something was fishy. A day later there was a news story about a ring of baby food thieves in the area stealing and returning the product for cash. Obviously, there is a ring and it involves store clerks conspiring to do so. Over $10,000 worth had been stolen from one Walmart in a week.

Sometimes the  milk doesn't come in, or Mom's on medication (that babby should not be ingesting) that gets into her milk, Mom's boobies are not producing enough milk (twins or triplets), Mom died in childbirth and Dad's neeples just don't cut it. Lots of reasons why babby ends up needing formula. It's not all just "laziness" on Mom's part.
 
2013-04-20 10:29:10 AM
Formula is expensive because they know it's a need, not a want.  If you've had a child, but don't want to let the lil sex trophy (i agree, good one) near your nipple, you deserve to pay through the nose for formula.  Can't produce breast milk?  In nature, your babby would die.  Good thing you have (really expensive) formula to bail out your non-maternal-arse.  Now stop biatching.  At least you didn't have to throw babby out with the powdered teat water.

They want over 30 bucks for decent razor blades anymore. Tide detergent is almost 20 bucks.Some BS over the counter remedies are 20 bucks. It goes on and on. Then we head over to grocery to feast upon 5 dollar a jar mayonnaise. The dollar is shiat. Despite what they say, inflation on everyday items is and has been through the roof.

Drying your razor with a hair dryer after shaving and rinsing the blades will prolong the life by about a month.

You don't need to steal it. There's people in the Netherlands buying pallets of it, and sending it off to the far east. With the way that big corps think they can divide the world, apparently for those parents in the far east, that's the cheapest option.
