Safeway Sandwich Snarl
Linked from the front of WaPo’s web site: The Safeway Sandwich Snarl.
Some woman has gone to way too much trouble to figure out the intricacies of Safeway’s “Buy seven sandwiches, get one free” promotion. Apparently, sandwiches purchased in different parts of the country are counted by zone, so that a sandwich purchased in Maryland and another purchased in California don’t count together toward the elusive free eighth sandwich.
It’s a cruel, cruel world.
