Buy Now, And We Might Throw In An Extra Sock

Filed under: Random Stuff, shopping — Brian Lutz @ 1:19 am

As far as I can tell, there seems to be some sort of sale going on here… Maybe.

Just how many different ways could that be interpreted?  If you buy one, do you get a half shoe off sale? Are you getting one half off shoe when you buy one?  Since the last time I checked you’re generally supposed to buy shoes in pairs, why would you be running a sale on one shoe anyway?  And just in case this wasn’t ambiguous enough already they decided to toss an extra asterisk into the mix without bothering to provide any context, potentially bringing this whole thing to an entirely new level of weasel words.   Of course, given this store’s location and the general trendiness of such merchandise, I suspect that I’d probably still wind up paying three times for a pair of shoes here than I usually would, even if there’s a sale going on here.  And given the signs here, I’m not so sure that there’s actually a sale going on anyway.
