Buyer Beware

Assignment number three in Blogging 101 is: follow five new topics in the Reader and five new blogs. I will complete that assignment but we may also blog a bit if we so desire. And I do.

One of my pet peaves is retail stores trying to trick customers into buying something at regular price by displaying it among sale priced items. Let me give you an example.

A huge display of Cola products was greatly reduced, with the low price being the predominant feature on the sign, and the brand name in significantly smaller print. Included in the display were a few cases of ice tea and I snatched one up at this low price.

My tea checked out at double the price advertised. When I complained, I was told it was only the Cola products on sale. A blank stare was the response to my question, “Why is the ice tea included in the display?” At this, the manager offered me the beverage for the sale price but I declined on principle. Buyer beware!

Tomorrow I will relate another incident, this time involving a child.

Leviticus 19:35 says “Do not use dishonest standards…”
