A killer deal
Makes me feel like such a cheapskate
An arm and a leg. Luckily, he talked them down to half price.
Went to the bird store today Went to the cage section and one caught my eye. It was way over priced and all It had was a penny, dime, quarter half dollar in it. I asked why it was so much?
The manager said because it was a nickel-less cage.
Entry was half price.
She called me a cheap skate.
Her: Wow, look at this coin purse. It cost twelve dollars.
Me: Why is it that expensive? It looks like it's worth less than half that.
Her: Well, you know...it is the Vera Bradley brand, and name-brand things always cost more.
Me: Well it seems like that is vera bradley priced.
I walked into a Michaels store today and saw a sales sign that had fallen off its stand from one side.
The sales associate saw me looking at it and said, "If you were wondering, we are having a sideways sale!".
I couldn't resist. "Well, that explains why the prices had dropped by half! "
We knew what we did. It was marvelous.
So tonight around closing time I was helping a middle aged man pick out a pair of jeans. I rung him up and told him the price, he looked at me and said "isn't everything half off today" and gave me this serious look. I let out a small fake laugh and said "No". He then laughed and said "I guess that one went right over your head!". I looked at him and let out another fake laugh. I had to resist telling him that I got the joke, but that it just wasn't funny...like at all.
