Shopping Rip-Off

Don't get caught ladies and gentlemen. On Thursday night we went shopping. One item on our list was shower gel, as soap isn't great on my body. I sometimes come out in a rash. I don't like paying more than $10/litre. So, I was quite disgusted to see shower gel in a 250 ml bottle for $4.22. On the shelf above it was a 500 ml bottle of bath wash for $4.55.

I stood back and thought about this. Then I checked the ingredients. They were exactly the same. Same stuff, different bottle, different target market - obviously people who buy shower gel are more gullible. Purchased the bath wash and it works fine.
