You ever get one of those super awesome "50% off" deals and then you look at the small print? Yeah...

90% off what the price would be after 3 years of 300% inflation.

By the way what's the half life expectancy of her shirts? I'm guessing 2 hours.

She probably needs a discount on her shirts, yes.

More costume changes afoot...

Over here we had a hardware store chain that always advertised with: "20 % off on everything! (Except animal food.)"

Yeah "discounts" don't mean anything without context--how much is it normally?

Fun fact (well, quite probably not so fun for the people working there): This discount campaign actually lead to the store chain's bankruptcy!

Does Donna wear green lipstick because red means "Stop" and green means "Go"?





Or is it red means "Stop, wrong hole"?

Well Sig despite yourself you're hitting on a number of things:

1) Donna's design is pretty heavily skewed towards red shades, hence something to break out from that (along with her eyes and nails).

2) Green is the color of money and as previously bluntly asserted, Donna can sell anything because she always says the right words.

3) Donna as a character weaponizes her appearance in order to turn off mens' brains. Despite this being a throw away blue comedy I'll probably wade into whether that is getting her what she wants out of life.

y'all are probably going to accuse me of bait-and-switch, tbh

She strikes me as a woman who'd never say wrong hole as long as she gets something she wants.

HA! It's hilarious that Donna refers to her cubicle as "her bedroom". :D

Well, it's where the customer gets fucked

originally it was supposed to be "if you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen" but come on, I've got a reputation to keep up

We wouldn't have it any other way, I'm sure. ;)

Sometimes, well most often, I suspect that they first put a label with double the normal price, strike that out and add a price tag with the regular price.

what is "price"?

ha, you should see how places like Walmart expect to sell a 100 shirts. Most go "on sale".

>> what is "price"?

Huh... according to my online-dictionary (dict.cc) it is what I thought it is: The amount of money they say they want you to pay for something the want to sell. Not necessarily what they really want you to pay for it. Has little to do with what they paid for it. Has even less to do with production costs.

Walmart might be famous for that but there are others, too, who regularly do that. Two years ago I bought some T-shirts for 1.50€ (probably 1.80$) each. I felt like a thief but they didn't say anything.
