The Gift Of Being Fastidious

We went to the bookstore to look buy a highlighter for Sophia’s acting class. I was bothered by the fact that the bigger one is cheaper than the mini. It certainly was not about the brand, because they were both stabilo boss. The bigger one is over 25% cheaper. How do you make sense of that? I did not have time to take a look at them closely, like maybe the mini is erasable or something, but I sure hope nobody is fooled by its cuteness. Lucky Sophia loves purple, otherwise I may have assumed smaller is cheaper.

I suppose this one tops the buy 1 for 10 buy 2 for 20 “promo”, only second to giving money away, or getting robbed maybe. It definitely pays to be meticulous. I am grateful I am particular about these things.

What is your biggest pet peeve when making a purchase?


No brainer, right?
