(for) SALE

I have a new hate. Restaurants and bars have started advertising food and drink "SALE"s. This is STUPID. You can't call it a sale. It's on offer. It's always been on offer. That is how it is supposed to be. It's NOT on sale. I probably find it more annoying than I should, but it's so stupidddd. I know that they're just trying to cleverly use the current economic climate and sea of sales in shops to grab our attention...but it's stupid. If it was one bar or one brand doing it I'd understand that it was just a advertising stunt and I'd find it bearable...but it's everywhere.

stupid stupid stupid.

I am drawn to the garish sale signs in other shops though. Super consumerism in tecnicolor. Funny old world.
