I bet we all have. I know I've been duped on some things, but I
really did want that so I paid the inflated price. Just as certain
brands have more attraction than others because that is what we grew
I know a fellow that started making the 2" carton sealing clear tape
often used in industry. I forget the exact details, but name brand
was selling for $1 a roll. He was at 25¢ and could not sell it. No
one wanted to take a chance on cheap tape. When he changed the price
to 90¢, he sold a bunch and finally sold the business and retired!
Maybe I should try that. 2 days ago I put out some "curbside
Microwave and a el cheapo string trimmer that was put away 25 years
ago with fuel in it.
Microwave works, needs carousel platter and is smoked up inside - does
not affect the ood.
Trimmer probably needs carb cleaned."
No takers but I see that at least one person stopped and looked them
Perhaps Ishould put a price on them. At least then the "5 finger
discount" types will be tempted.
My latest fail was buying paper kitchen towels. AHA BIG roll, price
only a bit higher than my regular brand. Knew I'd been had with the
first use. Yep, roll was a bit bigger but teach towel was about 1/8
longer than my usual. So I paid more for "bigger" but would getLESS
Sorta beating them as I now cut each sheet in half.

As for math, I quit taking it after Calculus B as it was all degree required.
My father, with only an 8th grade education, was excellent at arithmetic.
My son, once a math major, who can run circles around me, milks it for anything
