The washer and dryings had big sales, but the prices were already inflated. So at the end of the day, there wasn't much of a savings. That my friend is how they get you. They run the base price up and then give you a sale to bring it back to the old base price.  >:(

Bruh, that’s been happening since forever.  My first job was in retail.  Even tho’ I wasn’t in sales I was eyeing prices on some items I wanted to purchase.
Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'”

Bruh, that’s been happening since forever.  My first job was in retail.  Even tho’ I wasn’t in sales I was eyeing prices on some items I wanted to purchase.

In 1987 in Warwick, Rhode Island I was interested in a "Tiger Eye" signet ring from Zales.  Having made 3 prior purchases from the salesman, I was told to wait 2 weeks when the company was having a sale. 

When I arrived the ring had been "marked up" from $100 to $150 and then given a sales discount that amounted to 35% off.

My price was $97.50 not quite worth the 2 week wait for a sale - the salesman apologized to me profusely and fained disappointment at this corporate practic.

This was his first job out of college and he had no prior knowledge of these retail shenanigans...

That was my first exposure to the "American Way" in the retail industry...
