Compare this to sale prices at my grocery store

I only buy a few shapes of pasta - elbow macaroni, thin spaghetti and lasagna noodles.
For some reaaon, when certain brands of pasta (notably Ronzoni) go on sale, only certain varieties are included. Now lasagna is a special case, but I have always wondered why thin spaghetti is not on sale and regular is. Elbow now on sale, bow tie is not. Half the varieties on sale, half not.
This happens with brownie mix also. 8x8 on slae, 9x9 not on sale. Rich chocolate flavor on sale, Richest flavor known to mankind not on sale.
I go to the desk now instead of assuming they forgot to put a sale tag under the one I want. If they tell me it isn't on sale, I put it back and wait for the next sale. Yes, what I am looking for eventually goes on sale and maybe the boys whatever does not. Milk never goes on sale, and I buy it at regular price. Who makes the rules as to what goes on sale and what doesn't? I don't know.
The manager should not have been rude to you. It does sound from your letter that you had a tone with them. There are two sides to a story, and I would be interested in their take. As to who decides what goes on sale, is that someone there at the store? I can see you making the suggestion they consider doing that on your item, but I can't see asking them to honor the price on an item not for sale.
