Does the BOGO confuse the little guys. And by the second day I'm ready to pull my own hair out of my head cuz I can't think of a different way to explain a BOGO.
I hold up fingers and show them if you buy one (one finger goes up) you get the second book for free (hold up second finger). But if you buy a third book (three fingers up now) you need to find a fourth one cuz it's... that's right, free!
Still... they don't get it.
So I told them to bring me even number of items and asked what even number are... which lead to blank stares. I count by 2s. Me: 2, 4, 6, 8... Students: Who do we appreciate?!?
I totally set myself up for that one.
And still... they bring me odd number of items to purchase.
Bang head on counter.
I tell them to go find something else in XYZ price range cuz... it's a BOGO and it'll be free.
And I remind myself I do the BOGO for the students to get books before summer and for the teachers who deserve a discount on books and for me to get some extra Scholastic Dollars.
It's all worth it, I try to tell myself.
The next student who brings me odd number of items to purchase.
Sigh. 9 1/2 more days of school.
