OHHH HELL NO!

I used to work as a a cashier and that phrase drove me bonkers.

Our company used to like to run things as "Buy one, get one 50% off"

When they got to me at the register, they expected both items to be 50% off. In actuality, you're buying one at full price in order to get the second one for 50% off, but you don't get BOTH at 50% off. Another way to look at it is that you're getting 25% both, but you have to buy two.

I used to just love to essentially shut my register down while I explained this to some moron.

actual % is 15.27, but don;t let the facts get in the way of a front page meme

Well, 64 cents off is 15.3%, not too much of a difference.

Or, are you criticizing the fact that a straight 15% off of $4.19 is $3.56?

Yep. Should be $3.56 or 15.3%. Well, $3.5615 or 15.27%. Just thought it might be slightly amusing for any maths geeks on imgflip. I see these maths errors at my local every week so thought I'd post one.

Plus, for the price, there's no way that the cash register would recognize anything past $X.XX

Finally, most consumers wouldn't recognize or have time to figure out a percentage with even one decimal place.
