No Sale!

Tuesday, the boys and I went to the local grocery store in Gentry. We needed (okay- WANTED) some vanilla ice cream to go with the blackberry cobbler we were making for my Mom. Hooray... the store had it on sale!

Blue Bunny: 2 for $8.00!

Regularly priced... $ 3.98 each.

Hmmm... not much of a sale. I pointed this out to the cashier. She said I was the third person this week to comment on the sale. She tried (in vain) to do the math. One of the twins told her... it would be four cents cheaper to buy two NOT on sale.

The clerk still seemed puzzled. We didn't buy the ice cream.

I used to be shocked at these kinds of sales. But it seems to happen frequently these days. I saw this in the produce the other day. A sign with the "new lower price," but somebody forgot to take down the previous price. You guessed it, it was higher than the regular price. And the bag was smaller.

Someone must think we are idiots.
