Usage Example: “I didn’t know that this dollar store had a meat department!”
Background: Shopping at a dollar store can be an excellent choice or the most frightening decision that a human being can make.
Shoppers looking to save money by purchasing party supplies and off-brand food products may be pleasantly surprised. For example, some dollar stores carry a wide variety of bagged cereals – from “Captain Crisp” to “Fruity Tiny Rocks”.
However, purchasing other products at a dollar store can be a tricky proposition. For example, there is nothing more frightening than the idea of a dollar store meat department. Yes, a dollar store meat department. Some dollar stores actually do contain small meat departments. These meat departments usually sell ham, turkey legs and rib eye steaks.
Purchasing a four ounce rib eye steak from a dollar store is a poor life decision. Some job applications not only ask about an applicant’s criminal background, but also whether he or she ever purchased a dollar store steak. Anyone who is tempted to purchase a dollar store steak is advised to sober up, and settle for the “Captain Crisp”.
