Todd’s Take: Getting Upsoled At Teh Gass Stayshun
It's nearly impossible to avoid advertising and marketing anymore these days. Website pop-up ads, pre-roll commercials on videos and apps, good 'ol fashioned billboards, radio and TV spots and, now even a trip to the gas station is no longer a safe harbor.
I went to fill up a while back at a combination mini-mart/filling station a few weeks ago and was blitzkrieged at the auto pay terminal by a computer asking me if, well... I wanted even MORE gas! ;)
The fact that there was missing punctuation, a misspelled word and generally poor grammar helped to exacerbate my frustration with what amounts to a weak attempt at up-selling me.
