I AM ALWAYS AMAZED THAT STORES DO NOT SEE WHAT IS GOING ON.
How can a store hope to catch shoplifters if they cannot see the problems with their displays? I am fed up with goods that have no prices, and goods that are misplaced under wrong prices and descriptions. It really is tedious, and it is getting worse.
My Christmas shopping brought me to a toy store where I saw toy boxes. Please click on the pictures to enlarge.
Yes, all the lids are broken (not a sure sign of good quality) — but look too at the price tags and descriptions. The nearest one states
“BLUE CRATE WITH
RED FOLDING LID 75LT
This is where you will find a blue crate with a BLUE lid. Now look along at the next one — the one under the RED crates with the BLUE lids, it states:
“UNDERBED BOX BLUE
WITH BLUE HANDLES
No-one seems to have thought of how a customer would be able to reach up to the top box safely.
I could have taken dozens of pictures, but despite their obvious bad eyesight, someone would have eventually spotted me snapping away, so this will have to serve as an illustration. However, I did manage a quick snap of this inexplicable product on my way out. yes, it’s Spiderman Monopoly! Quite how one is reconciled with the other is just beyond my imagination. I gave it a pass.
This is a world going slowly mad.
