A woman friend explained ‘buy one get one free’ to me today. I don’t know why she felt the need to do this but I found it immensely entertaining.
‘You see, you buy one item, and they just give you another one for nothing,’ she said earnestly.
‘Hang on, hang on,’ I said. ‘Can we just go through that again from the beginning?’
She looked at me for a second, unsure if I was serious or not then we burst out laughing.
Well, I did anyway.
I always think of Yoda from Star Wars when I see BOGOF signs in shops and imagine him wandering in and proclaiming in that alien voice, ‘Ah, get one free buy one!’ Now that would really confuse my friend.
