Tirade - Quantities

What is it with these food manufacturers?  Why can't we settle on the right quantities?  For instance recently I bought some hot dogs.  I assumed there would be four in a packet, but no, there were five.  Then if you want to buy the buns they are packed in sixes!  Similarly hamburger buns seem to come in fours, but the actual packed hamburgers come in dozens.  Has nobody thought this through?  Only being two in our household, bread type products go stale long before we can eat them, and I'm sure we're not the only people with this  problem - or at least a well stuffed deep freeze, although bread doesn't do that well in a freezer.  I'm certain there's a market for smaller quantities for smaller households.  OK, charge a little extra, but why not cater to us.  Come on People!
