13. Misleading Advertisement

1. Repeat

A: I'm glad these batteries are on sale.

B: I'm sorry. These batteries are not on sale.

A: But that's what the ad says.

B: I'm sorry. If you look at the ad again, you'll see that the other brand is on sale.

A: You're right. I misread the ad.

B: Yes, many people make that mistake.

A: You can't blame them. It's a confusing ad.

B: You're right. Many ads are like that.

A: As long as I'm here.

B: Just one second, and I'll get you the batteries that are on sale.


2. Repeat


A: It's about time these batteries went on sale.

B: I'm sorry. These aren't on sale today.

A: You're kidding me. The ad says they're on sale.

B: Yes, the other brand of batteries is on sale.

A: I see. I've got the wrong brand.

B: Yes, it's an easy mistake to make.

A: The ad is written in a misleading way.

B: I agree. It seems like all ads are meant to confuse you.

A: It's not the first or last time.

B: Hold on, and I'll get you the batteries that are on sale.


3. Repeat


A: You don't often find these batteries on sale.

B: I'm not sure that these batteries are on sale today.

A: But the ad says they're on sale.

B: Yes, batteries are on sale, but not this brand.

A: What do you know? I picked up the wrong brand.

B: Yes, several customers have made that mistake today.

A: Like many ads, it's deliberately confusing.

B: I couldn't agree more. They write ads just to get you into the store.

A: I should know better by now.

B: If you can wait one minute, I'll bring you the batteries that are on sale.


4. Repeat


A: This is the first time I've seen these batteries on sale.

B: I'm sorry, but they aren't on sale today.

A: Look at the ad. The ad says they're on sale.

B: Yes, the ad says that the other brand of batteries is on sale.

A: Yes, I misread the ad.

B: Believe me, you're not the first person to make that mistake today.

A: No wonder people make a mistake. The price is in big letters, and the brand is in tiny letters.

B: You're right. You have to read an ad two or three times sometimes.

A: You have to be careful with every ad you read.

B: It's okay. I'll go get you the batteries that are on sale.


5. Repeat


A: These batteries should be on sale more often.

B: I don't think these batteries are on sale.

A: Look at the ad. It says they're on sale.

B: You're right. Batteries are on sale, but not this brand of batteries.

A: I didn't pay attention to the brand name.

B: Several people have misread that ad already today.

A: People make the mistake because the ad is misleading.

B: I agree with you. Ads can be very tricky.

A: I don't know when I'll ever learn.

B: No problem. I'll bring you the batteries that are on sale. I'll be right back.
