Smart marketing

prudential center does not have that many nice shops. but it does have zombies once a year (see yesterday), and it has a food court where they have one shop that sells good coffee (which is rare), and very very tasty cookies... so we wanted some cookies. since it was almost closing time, you got 2 cookies for the price of one, that was nice!. we thus choose 3 cookies and got 3 for free. but then the lady said: ah, if you have 6 cookies, you get another 6 for free! and thus we were so stupid to choose now 12 cookies, resulting in us paying for 6 cookies, instead of the 3 cookies we initially wanted.... now isnt that a smart sales-technique.... she got rid of her last cookies and she made us pay for them without us realizing it at that moment.
but the box she put the cookies in was sooo nice and i liked to walk around with it.. :) and we still have many cookies.. (1 cookie is almost like a meal....).
