Sometimes Tart, Wal-Mart

Must be the new math…

This recent exchange with the cashier at the grocery store:

AM: There was a sign that said red peppers were two for $3.
Cashier: No ma’am, they are $1.50 each. Do you still want both of them?
AM: Yes, I want both of them. That would be $3. Two for $3.  $1.50 x 2.
Cashier: (rolling her eyes and twisting her eyebrow ring)  Ma’am they are $1.50 each, do you want both of them or not?
AM: Umm…  Okay, $1.50 each and not a penny more.
