Every morning I wait to see what the morning sun will highlight in my kitchen.
As I stood patiently waiting in the line at the grocery store, A very elderly man, much older than even ME, put three 12 packs of coke /soda on the belt. The cashier said these are on sale today buy 3 get one free.
He said I know, that is what I want to do. She said where is the one you want for free? you need a forth one.
He said "it's buy 3 get 1 free"
The cashier smiled and sent the bag boy to get the fourth one.
Chalk up one for the English Language in the confusion column.
It made perfect sense when I was explaining it to Bob.
Buy 3 and get one free could mean, when you buy 3 one of them is free..
We were NOT in Wal-Mart and I wanted to say for the money you just spent you could have gotten 4 for 5 dollar less, any day of the week.
