Don't believe ...

The ads said "2 pair of glasses for $99.00". So we took #3 son over to look at glasses. He'd had an eye exam and it was determined he needed new glasses and the timing was perfect - 2 for 99.

Except that when you add the things to the glasses you really need - or a young person really needs - like scratch resistance coatings and all that stuff - the price does several back flips on the way to new heights. Phooey.

I KNEW it was too good to be true. Don't believe everything you read.

I'm just sayin'.

So the ad for a stunning new washing machine with astonishing 'Hydro-Thermal Power!!!' is just a lot of hot water?

Hey, they have to bait the trap with something tempting, don't they..?

I think they all went to the "sucker born every minute" school of advertising.
