#13: Don’t Be Fooled
Oh, department store discounts… Nothing screams “I’m overpriced” quite like seeing a big red tag with “50% off” on it. And let’s not even get started on the confusing math they use to try and convince us that we’re getting a good deal. It’s like they think we all failed third-grade math or something. But the worst part?
They expect us to be excited about it! As if we’re supposed to feel lucky for paying what the item is actually worth instead of some made-up, inflated price. Honestly, it’s insulting. So to all the department stores out there: just give us fair prices, no tricks, no gimmicks. We’re not that stupid.
