Buying shrimp...21-25 count....what would you do?

Val | Mar 24, 2011 05:47 PM

Heh...a local shop, Wynn's, has what they call "jumbo" gulf shrimp on sale for $7.99/pound...(now truly, that is unbelievable..the jumbo part AND the price)...haven't seen a price like that in, uh, well a LONG damned time...going price is at LEAST $13/pound for large-ish size wild-caught Gulf shrimp. So, I go there and buy a pound..get it home and count it out...36 shrimp, some the size of my pinky and some the size of my forefinger, the rest in between. But definitely not 25 pieces. Would you point this out to the manager? I do kind of feel like I'm being ripped off (and I know for a fact that I am)....thanks!
EDIT: what bothers me is that what they say in the add 21-25 count is NOT what it really is...
