IT PAYS CONSUMERS NOT TO BE STUPID!
Tabacco: It pays to either know how to do simple calculations in your head or carry a calculator with you when you shop at the Supermarket!
Once, at a Supermarket, they listed the price of a quart of milk at $1.50 (I don’t remember the exact price) and a half-gallon of milk at $3.10. I did the math in my head and bought two quarts of milk for $3.00, saving $.10! I then advised the manager of the error in pricing.
Another time, I went food shopping with my husband-wife tenant pair. She had both hamburger meat and hamburger patties in her cart. Of course the patties were much more per pound than the hamburger meat! I explained that to the couple and they doubled their hamburger meat while returning the patties. Hamburger Shape Perfection is not a requisite for your tongue or your stomach!
Then we have those Catalogue Companies, which ask you for the exact Catalogue in which you found that item! If you have the wrong Catalogue, you will pay the higher price! They won’t tell you a more recent Catalogue has lowered the price by $10 or more!
The minute they ask you for the Catalogue Ref No., you should say, “Oh let me go through my Catalogues from you. I will call you back when I find the cheaper price!”
In all probability, the Customer Servicer will own up to the Cheaper Price on the spot and offer it to you regardless of the Catalogue you are using at the moment. You might find the Cheaper Price or another Vendor and NOT call back! Saving MONEY is worth it – even if you are BLUFFING! Or maybe you are not worth as much to this Vendor as other Customers, who have done the checking before placing the call!
Now let’s talk about Kay Jewelers’ / LeVian’s ‘CHOCOLATE DIAMONDS’! The most important asset of Diamonds is their
Now this Jeweler is selling diamonds they couldn’t give away unless they changed the name to ‘CHOCOLATE’! Give me a break! If you want to cut Diamonds and need a Diamond Drill, Chocolate Diamonds are your best bet. But when you see some idiot woman, wearing this stuff, try not to laugh!
Oh well, Dandelion Greens are really WEEDS, aren’t they! And the Food Network has turned them into a ‘delicacy’!
What will they think of next? URINE PERFUME!
Tabacco: I consider myself both a funnel and a filter. I funnel information, not readily available on the Mass Media, which is ignored and/or suppressed. I filter out the irrelevancies and trivialities to save both the time and effort of my Readers and bring consternation to the enemies of Truth & Fairness! When you read Tabacco, if you don’t learn something NEW, I’ve wasted your time.
Tabacco is not a blogger, who thinks; I am a Thinker, who blogs. Speaking Truth to Power!
In 1981′s ‘Body Heat’, Kathleen Turner said, “Knowledge is power”.
