Marketing Bullshit

There's a lot of it about, but I particularly enjoyed this dose of absolute bollocks on the local news site today:

I used to work at a CVS, and they used to push us to push the CVS label products. They were good stuff and offered a high profit margin. But the neighborhood I was in (Philadelphia's Society Hill)...they didn't want off-label shit. They wanted their Evian and Charmin and Oreos...I KNOW my customers. I kept trying to explain this to my District Manager, but...well, he was a piece of shit anyway.

I'm amused by the phrase "save up to $20.00 or more". It's meaningless. 1 cent is up to $20.00, and $1,000.00 is or more.
