Re:~ Who writes this stuff ... (Sub-topic: Advertsting)
Reminds me of a time in the cafeteria at work when they changed the burrito bar from a flat $5 to a pay by weight system. They put up a sign that said, "In Order to increase customer satisfaction, we are now charging by the ounce for this item." I checked out in a line where the manager was covering for a sick cashier. The guy in front of me saw that his price was close to $9, refused to pay it and the manager had to throw it in the trash. I asked him if that guy seemed more satisfied. He didn't answer me but I did notice the sign was gone the following week.
I just wish marketing people would learn that not insulting people's intelligence would often be a better way to go. The sign should have said, "You people are pigs! We're losing money on this every week! From now on you have to pay by the pound!"
