Half a Mind

Posting the previous blog reminded me of the signs I saw in Boots during this year’s January sales. Items on rows of shelves were being sold for “Half Marked Price!”. Helpfully, strategically stuck on some of the shelves were “ready reckoners”:

Marked price ………………………………… Sale price
£1 …………………………………………………………..50p
£2 …………………………………………………………£1

and so forth.

I had half a mind to complain about being patronised in this way….. surely anyone who needed this simple reckoner should not have been allowed out with their own money?
