    Rant

    I am tired of this crap!
    Blah, blah, blah, on sale now for $XXX.97 or .98 or .99.
    Call it what it is. EVEN DOLLARS!
    We know that $699.99 is REALLY $700, so call it that, one CENT LESS does not fool us!
    (Commercial for Sleep Number Bed just now on TV)
    RANT OVER.

    Dont get me wrong, i agree with you it doesn't fool me and i think its kinda funny that people do get fooled by it. But there have actually been studies done that say it works. For example $299.99 will sell more than $300. I remember studying it in a college marketing class years ago.

    There is a historical reason for prices that end in .99.
    In the late 1800s a man in Chicago started publishing a newspaper that cost .01 per copy.
    He visited all the stores in the Chicago Loop and convinced them to change their whole-dollar prices to prices ending in .99 so customers would always have a penny to buy his newspaper.
    Always expect stupidity. You'll rarely be disappointed.

    But wait, instead of an hour nap, call now and it will only take 59 minutes!

    Too many cold ones in the afternoon always leads to a nap for me...

    To cure the mood, you need to drink more, or take a nap and when you wake up, it will be better. No need to let something you can't control put you in an emotional state of disorder.

    Technically, it would be 59 minutes and 59 seconds.
