Sticker Stupidity

One thing (really? just one?) I can't stand is retail confusion.

I always think of the little old lady, who's trying to stick within her fixed income, getting flummoxed over the 57 price tags before her in the tape aisle.

I am now that little old lady. Well, sort of. I have a job. But - I am kerfuffle-d over the difference prices of packing tape:

There are two tags for the DR Brand of packing tape. Same SKU (the product number identifier on the barcode. See? It paid to have that stock position at Bradlees.), right next to each other, but one is 60 cents more expensive!!


There is a happy ending to this story, as the cashier didn't charge me the higher price. And you KNOW that would've been an issue beyond implosion.

If you spot any of these, send them my way. I'm SURE I'm not the only one seeing these. Actually, Consumerist had a similar experience a couple weeks ago. Seems the DR is a little 'old lady' itself.

Undeniably imagine that that you stated. Your favorite
justification appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to keep in mind of.
I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while other folks consider worries that they just do not know about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and defined out the entire thing with no need side-effects , other folks can take a signal.
Will likely be again to get more. Thank you

Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with SEO?

I'm trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I'm not seeing
very good results. If you know of any please share.
Thank you!
