Serious Opinions Please



Please post and indicate why you would expect to pay whatever price you've chosen for the Reuben. Thanks.

3.69 is about what I pay at a local deli on my way to work. Although I dont get rubens often, only when I get a real hankering for them.

$2.99 for the obvious reason that is what the sign seems to imply.

Apparently it is more. So did you have the Reuben or did you tell them to shove it up their wazoo ?

I chose $3.69...because it'd probably be more in Canada ...but according to the sign, I'd pay $2.99

And the reason for this thread is...

I chose 3.69, but would have really liked to pick 4.29 maybe I'm thinking to much into this but from the sign 2.99 then like 30 cents tax with 1 dollar tip 4.29?

lol. Wow

Read the sign again, you guys...

Is it the sandwich that is going for 2.99?
-------------------
It's a tricky marketing scheme. What should matter more, what is in writing, or what is implied?

What matters more? What people say? Or what they mean?

Wow...how did we all miss that

So it'd probably be $4.29 if it's $3.99 for the dip...

Props to Godlaus for figuring that one out.

Good thing I didn't vote (considering I had no idea what a Reuebn even was before this thread ). I thought that "!" looked awkward, but around here people mess up on signs alot.

Depends on where it came from. Someone coulda messed the sign up, or like Godlaus said, it could be a tricky marketing scheme. I put I don't know, but something tells me I'd buy it anyway, reubens are great!

Let's see... that photo came from photovillage (or something of the equivalant), so that means that the hobo or someone else took that photo, and it's not on the internet as a public picture. I'm guessing that the hobo walked in, expected to pay 2.99, and they rang him up for 5.49, or something along those lines. Being a conservative, he won't let things like that slide, so he's making them take the sign down, change it, or charge him and future customers the right price.
