I was able to get an hour to myself tonight so what did I do? I went to Babies- R-Us because I just can't get enough of that place. Anyway, I stood for about 30 minutes in the Carter's clothing section looking at all of their Buy One-Get One 50% off items. I grabbed 4 outfits at $10 each and tried to do the math in my head (take in mind that I am not a math major) and somewhere along the way, I got the Buy One-Get One and the 50% off confused. So when I went up to the register, I expected to get all 4 outfits for $20 (50% off each is $5 and BOGO also makes them $5 each. So any way you look at it...I should get 4 outfits for $20). Now I know you are thinking "Jen...you are an idiot. It is Buy-One and get the OTHER 50% off". But I didn't realize this at the time. So anyway, I go to the counter and they check out all of my items and the total is $10 more than I expected. So here is the dialogue I exchange with the cashier:
Idiot (me): Aren't the Carter's clothes BOGO 50% off?
BRU Lady: Yes they are!
Idiot: So why didn't they ring up that way?
BRU Lady: They did.
Idiot: Well why is my total $10 more than it should be?
BRU Lady: Because they are Buy One-Get One 50% off.
Idiot: I know.
BRU Lady: Right.
BRU Lady: So?
BRU Lady: So do you still want them?
Idiot: Yes...but I want them Buy One-Get One 50% off.
BRU Lady: They are.
Idiot: They are what?
BRU Lady: Buy One-Get One 50% off.
BRU Lady: ...............???????????????????
Idiot: OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, Sure sorry, um, I'll take them. Here is my envirosac.
And if that weren't bad enough (with 5 people waiting behind me) I pay the poor woman and walk out of the store WITHOUT MY BAG! I got all the way to the car and turned it on. Then I saw a BRU worker come out of the store with my bag. Thank God I didn't have to go back in the store and look like the jackass who not only can't count or comprehend a very simple transaction, but also leaves without the stuff she just argued about!! I guess I should have Addie wear her "I'm with Stupid" onesie so at least people can see me coming next time :-)
