I do that sort of thing all the time Mr. B.. My selective vision makes me look rather idiotic
at times. Imagine a sign on top of a rack. I go for the sale item like a mad woman. How can so many people be passing this amazing deal by? Pants for how much?!? No freaking way I can dress my kids for the next 10 years at this price! So I grab the entire rack and run to the check out counter before someone changes their mind and corrects the pricing. The cashier tells me my total is $10,000. I'm like, "But madam your sale sign says this entire rack of pants only cost .10 each." So they run back there, leave me standing in line, holding up all the other patrons, until finally some tired elderly person who was sent to do the price check comes back and tells me that was for the packs of bubble gum not the pants.
No, that's not a true story. But it's an exaggeration of something that happens to me rather often. If it appears too good to be true I typically have to ask someone else if I'm reading something correctly. Occasionally I'm right but more often than not I'm experiencing a selective vision moment. I also suffer from selective hearing. Good times.
