Hey that’s a good deal, I thought.
The sign outside the local video store said:
Buy Two Movies
Get 1 for a Buck
I could buy a previously viewed movie DVD for $9.99, and get the second one for a dollar. This was almost too good to pass up.
There wasn’t a lot to choose from, but after 20 minutes of reading DVD covers I chose Slumdog Millionaire as a Christmas present for my son and Frozen River based on a true story as the second movie. I had never heard of Frozen River before, but what’s to lose at $1.
I took my choices to the check-out. The clerk smiled as she dug out the appropriate CD’s to place in my chosen cases.
She then informed me, “We have a sale. If you buy 2 movies you get the next 1 for a buck, so if you pick another movie you only have to pay one dollar.”
I looked at the sign again. Of course, it was obvious, or was it?
What do you think? How would you have read that sign? Leave a comment, let me know. I am curious as to whether my brain works differently than yours.
