    Just got back form getting pain meds at the CVS store.
    As I rolled back out I passed by and end Isle SALE display of rolled up fleece throws.
    Sign was as follows:

    SALE

    4/$10
    reg $2.5O each


    LOL

    I think the first word was mispelled it should have read SELL.

    So I just took my narcotics and went home.

    I think they're trying to pull the wool over somebody's eyes.

    When I lived in FL I went ot a garden center to buy some bagged dirt.
    The sign on the pile of bags said.
    4/$10 or $2.39 each.

    I told the guy I was buying 4 bags but to ring em up as indivudual sales.
    He was confused, I pointed at the sign and he still could not figure it out.

    Maybe he used it to buy a stamp to mail a letter to the garden center about their stupid pricing. Delivering the letter would have saved or created a job at the post office.

    My cousin, Melvin, wanted to make some money selling hay this past summer. He was going to sell small bales for $4.00 each or 4 bales for $10.00. I told him if he did that he would loose money. He said he didn't think so because he could make it up on volume.
