A big sign outside a bakery put "Buy 2 Get 1 Free". When paying, I feel so cheated when the cashier told me is valid for a particular kind of pastry promotion only & Not all.

After paying , I went & took a look at the sign outside again. Yes, "Buy 2 Get 1 Free " is so Big. Right below the stated pastry name is so small.

The merchant think they are clever with the sign to lure the unsuspecting walkin customers.However they can cheat me once but i won't patronize the shop forever again........ there are other choices in the vicinity.

Learnt something in Japan. The restaurant is in TripAdvisor. You can choose individually. But they tried to sell you as eating anything but with time limit. This is expensive.

After eating around, there are a lot of other shops that sell good food at low or reasonable prices. Sometimes the recommendations by locals are better.

The in- experienced young cashier , seems part timer, turn around & told the older colleague " Can put the pastry name bigger or not?" Obviously many walk in customers had fallen prey to the misleading signboard with the frustrated young cashier needs to clarify every time.

The older colleague then replied " What?can't hear you ...... Tell me later" Feinting ignorance.

I found it q amuse with collection of an aunty ,before me, carrying 9 buns in a bag walking away from the cashier silently. I think she must be also cursing & swearing inside. She bought 9 & got nothing free....

Some sign is to mislead customers

Empathy is the power to understand and share the feelings of another.
