How's that again?

         While buying cat litter  ....

         There were two signs above the pallet holding the bags.  One read: 2 for $10. Save 98 cents.
  This was right next to the sign that said:  $4.99.

 (What kind of math is this? I pay $10 instead of $9.98 and somehow save 98 cents?)

        Pointed this out to a clerk, who saw the same problem.  She walked us to the checkout counter and told the cashier to ring the bags up at $4.99.

         "But they ring up at $5," the cashier said after waving the scanner at them.

         "No, the sign says they're $4.99."

          "Just two of them, or all of them?"

          "All  of them."

          I'm still scratching my head at this one ...
