Can You Tell I'm Uninspired?

Believe it or not, the thing that's got me worked up is something I heard in an ad on the radio yesterday. Maybe worked up is too strong a sentiment. Annoyed? No, still too emphatic.

Fine, I'll be honest. I noticed it when I heard it and since I have nothing interesting to tell in a short post and no time for a long post, you get something that clears the bar by a very low threshold...I sorta remembered it.

I don't remember what the ad was for since I wasn't paying any attention at all, but I did notice when they said something I've heard a zillion times and it always pushes my button. Soooo...

Dear Advertiser,

I would appreciate it, if, in the future, you refrained from telling me I can "save up to 50% or more!"

I don't believe it's possible to have both options available. It's either up to or it's more.

Please stop saying that. Thank You.
