I'LL STEAL YOUR WALLET FOR THE AMAZINGLY LOW FEE OF ONLY $10!!!
At my work place, the vending company is promoting new king size candy bars. There's a sticker on the vending machine hyping that king size is "Great value! 33% more candy!" Gee wow!!!

Only problem is that by doing basic math, you realize that the price for these bigger bars is in fact 78.5% higher.

You'd have been better off buying two regular candy bars. That way you get 50% more candy than king size for only 12% more money.

Except, apparently aware of this little triviality, the vending company has REPLACED regular sized bars with king sized ones (rather than complimenting them).

So the solution is to go to the supermarket and buy a bag of carrots to nibble on.
