Pet Peeve: What Kind Of Quality do You Want?


One of my pet peeves is when people say they want a “quality” product. What does that mean? Quality is a noun, not an adjective. (Don’t worry; that’s it for the English lesson). When anyone says “I want a quality product at a good price”, I’m the guy that has to comment and say “What kind of quality do you want? High quality? Low Quality? Medium Quality?  Because quality doesn’t mean anything until you throw an adjective in front of it.”

If you want low quality, then say that. Admit to yourself that you want some crappy dollar menu item and that price is a concern and taste is secondary.  It’s ok. Sometimes I like a heart attack patty hidden between two buns as much as the next guy.

If you want high quality, then be willing to pay the price for it. Say you want it, accept into your heart and pay the price.  You get what you pay for.

Don’t be afraid to throw in that adjective “high” in front of the word “quality.”  I promise you; it is OK to do it.

    Agreed! Of course there are ways round this. I’ve got many a high ‘quality’ piece of clothing for much cheapness in the charity shops. I like getting ‘cut-price’ items in the designer outlets which are selling last year’s stuff. Mostly I reckon a mid-range price is they way to get something decent. Most money isn’t always best quality.
