Annoying and Off-Center Imperfections

If only they had thought to build that chandelier, ceiling fan, window, door or pipe just a little more to the left. If only someone had laid that tile with just a little more care. It doesn't feel good knowing that these images will exist, just mocking the gods of straight, flush, on-target crispness. All you can do is try to counteract them with images of things fitting perfectly.

Stuff That's Getting More Expensive and Somehow Worse

Every industry has its sketchy secrets, and once tons of companies realized they could use their popular brand to leverage their loyal customer base into paying more for less, you can find yourself looking at a creme egg going "whhaaaaa???". It's also easy to fall into the nostalgia trap of "remember the better olden days" when that product wasn't much better to start with, but shrinkflation has definitely attacked a variety of products and things from all sides.
