Shopping strikes back

Shopping strikes back like a comma between the subject and the predicate. You can find this, yet another sample of monstrous copyrighting, on the Famous Brands Gallery ("Marca te remarca!") leaflet.

Hours spent next to the perfume shelves also resulted into the following instant vapor classic of frustration: "I work like a slave, and don't even have a perfume at home". And since that was a private conversation and I am in the MM mode (mysterious AND merciful) I won't reveal the identity of the script writer.

But I am having fun. And a new belt. I know, who cares.

andressa's been daring me to name names. Well, not many script writers out there will be wearing DKNY this season. Or will they?

oh, and by the way they overcharged my credit card with 30 ron. I am going to make an experiment. Keep you all posted.

comision?

neah! That shows on the papers from the bank. Here we have a clear case of blurred vision. A 4 instead of a 1.

FINALLY, we have an answer. The price labelling was wrong "We are sorry". So I paid the right amount. But I smell a case of Protectia Consumatorului here...
