Don't get too excited now. No, I'm not announcing that I'm taking pregnancy tests. Just that I saw one for sale. At the Dollar Store.
I may be crazy, but I don't think I would buy a pregnancy test from the dollar store. In the end, it wouldn't be saving me any money. Because if I bought one from the dollar store and took it, no matter what the result, I wouldn't trust it. This would mean I would have to go to a non-dollar store, buy another one, just to double check. So I would be buying the higher price one plus that dollar version, making my dollar wasted.
Plus it was in line at the check out. You know, were all the last minute items are that they are trying to get you to buy on an impulse. It was sitting there next to the candy, gum, batteries. A pregnancy test! I'm not sure how many women are standing in line waiting to buy their dollar wares, see the test and think "Wow, I have been meaning to take a pregnancy test, I just haven't had the time." Just saying, I don't think a pregnancy test is really an impulse kind of purchase.
