Walking thru a well known grocery store and seen a displayfor some hot cake mix, thier were 3 flavours but the main one was missing...see where Im going?? that main mix is very popular and was not shown at that display.



"The light came on" what they want you to do is go searching down the islesfor the missing mix, and while your doing a search "you hopefully buy something you see on the way



Never fails to amaze me,thiers actually people sitting around a tabledreaming thesetactics up....seen any scams latley?

Like PT Barnum(or somebody) said, there's a fool born every minute. You just have to hope you are not one of them and fall into the trap.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

My Dear Sir,

Through my misfortune, I am able to contact you.
As my Family assets are seized, a very respectable USA associate will partner with you in completion of this transaction. I will send an amount $2,000 above our agreed price, of which 20% is yours to keep. As my associate will pick up the sale of your Motorcycle this on Friday eve. I thank you for our help.

When Bear Paws cookies first came out, our local Safeway store used to hide the chocolate chip ones behind all the other oatmeal, apple etc.

My kids got a real charge out of mining for them at the back of the shelf and leaving it completely disorganized. As a responsible parent I felt it was my duty to reprimand them and have them straighten it out, but I am not always responsible.

One that I witnessed...



In college, a marketing class, a local marketing "guru" came in to lecture our class. Told us how we could dream up all sorts of creative ways to advertise.



One of his favorites (I will never forget how proud he was of this...)



He sold advertising space on the backs of playing cards to a funeral home, then handed the decks of cards out, for free, to old folks homes...

Hell, people go to college to learn how to do this. Then go on to pursue a career conning people. Of course they call it something else.
