Not a sign, but a product.

DH & I were at Cabela's tonight seeing if there was anything we were interested in for their big sale tomorrow.  I happened to look at some boxes of ammo that were sitting on the counter in the gun department...

I like the disclaimer:  "Disclaimer: Hornady® Zombie Max™ ammunition is NOT a toy (IT IS LIVE AMMUNITION), but is intended only to be used on…ZOMBIES, also known as the living dead, undead, etc.  No human being, plant, animal, vegetable or mineral should ever be shot with Hornady® Zombie Max™ ammunition."

I want a box of this to put in my zombie response team vest.  DH said that it's too expensive and I should take some regular shot and paint them green.  He's no fun.

While Christmas shopping last year I saw a sign advertising gift sets for sale. It read:

           Reg.           Sale
         20.00        12.00
         30.00        18.00
         40.00        24.00

<tilt>That just doesn't add up.  Even after multiple concussions, I can calculate "half off" in my head.

I saw this morning's local "news" show.  They were promoting Black Friday.  The female news anchor has a guest from the local shopping mall with "Black Friday specials."  Supposedly marked down so low they are considered "door busters" because the shoppers will bust down the doors to get to them.

First store's "door buster" special:  Buy 3 items for $30.  These items normally retail for $8, $10, or $12.  Hurry! Supplies are limited at this price.

I thought, "Yeah, ri-i-ight.  Hurry & buy before you realize that you are paying more for the $8 items than before they went on 'sale'."

I've seen that type of thing before, where the stores apparently don't think their customers do math.  I'd see signs for the small size of cat food, 3.5 pounds on sale for 2.50.  Right next to the small bags are the large bags, 7 pounds, at the regular price of $7.  Do the math.  You get the same amount of cat food buying two small bags, but pay $2 less.

Places like Jo-Ann Fabrics seem to think the same thing: they sell what are called fat quarters (18x22 inch pieces, the same amount of fabric as a quarter-yard, but a squarish block rather than a long strip) for $2.50, while the same fabric right off the bolt is $5-$6 a yard. Apparently lots of their customers don't do the math, or they wouldn't keep doing it.

The customers who buy fat squares probably do so for the convenience of not having to wait in line and get all their fabrics measured and cut.  Time = money, or so they say.  :)

I get fat quarters when 2 conditions are met:
1: I'm feeling lazy and need a square that I don't feel like cutting myself (I can never seem to cut a perfect square, I'm always off by half an inch the first two times I try)
2: They're on sale for $1-1.50
In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children.  The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted.  The result is unruly children and childish adults.  ~Thomas Szasz

Me too, though I have to add:

3: There's a fabric that I absolutely have to have, and they only have it in fat quarters (this may or may not also meet conditions 1 and 2)

My local convenience store has recently changed hands. So all new signage, etc.

One of the things they like to do is label their savings and offers as "smart savings"

I was looking at the wine section waiting for my husband to purchase his items, and I noticed several "smart savings" on the shelf. My second favorite was the Bucks Fizz - Was 4.00, now 4.00! Wow I thought.

My favorite was the half price wine offer - WAS 8.99, NOW 5.99!
