Let's have a thread where you can dump all the irritating nonsense that you encounter in this world of ours. I'm going to start off with supermarket 'offers': I generally don't want to buy "3 for £7" and I also therefore don't want to buy 1 of the same items for £3 each. I'm in a lose/lose situation because I know if I buy 3 items one will possibly end up being thrown away - I don't like waste and I'll end up paying £3.50 each for two items. In this case I will often go without said item - lose/lose! Additionally you need to have your wits about you when shopping in some stores (M&S esp). An end of aisle display (for example) will often have a 'themed' promotion, let's say 'Summer Picnic' food items, 3 for £8, where items are 'normally' priced £3-4 each, a 'saving' if you require three items. The catch is they will strategically place non-promotion items amongst the display, meaning the unwary will pick up three items believing them to be 3 for £8 and end up being charged maybe £12. The same applies to 'reduced' items, they also 'nullify' the offer. I suspect a lot get caught out this way and the retailer is applauded for being so profitable. I would simply rather pay a fair price for my purchases and not be 'tricked' when buying a few groceries and for this reason I wish the practice be consigned to Room 101!
