Wait, wait, wait. Now stop. Think about what you've been told. Now. Does it sound reasonable?
OT for this but Tesco and others also show a lack of understanding of what most of us mean by "Ready to eat"...I frequently report those "half price" errors to my local supermarkets and they look at me with "Get a life" eyes every time.
Years ago a local model shop had a sale on, 20% off Tamyia kits and 30% off Revell kits. The shop was part of a chain and had a pimpley faced yoof manager who programmed the tills thus - Tamyia kit price x 0.2 Revell kit price x 0.3Needless to say the sale went very well. I ended up with 3 Radio Controlled cars :-)
this is probably a fair reflection of the general levels of numeracy in axminster...
Turns out this may be more widespread than Axminster - Tesco near Bracknell had the same prices as in the photos.So take back your Axminster-sleight, Ashley!
Wow, perhaps SciencePunk needs to start a whole Tesco Bad Math section
Yeah, this morning I was in Tesco and they were selling "twisted" Starburst packs for 18p each. Their "Special Offer" price? - 2 for 50p! Needless to say, I only had one...
