The major supermarket chain with whom I have been doing business for many years sent me a flyer in today's mail to announce a wonderful new feature they are offering:
It turns out, though, that there's one teensy-weensy little catch, a fly in the ointment, as it were.
It's not free.
The devil, as always, is in the details. Farther down in the flyer we learn that for "Next-Day Delivery" the cost is $59/year
I learned even more when I checked the fine print at the bottom of the flyer:
As people have been saying since at least as long ago as the days of the Roman Empire, caveat emptor (let the buyer beware).
The French say (in French, of course), "The more things change, the more they remain the same."
Perhaps P.T. Barnum said it best: "There's one born every minute."
I have no doubt whatever that a lot of people will rush to avail themselves of FREE Delivery, many of them millennials who have a college degree.
I will not be among them.
