Coles misleading customers?

Could be it be that Coles is suffering from the 2047 bug?

Or maybe the "Millennials" (you know the ones who FAIL in simple mathematics) programed their computers.

Let's take a look at a 'case study'.


In the above illustration, Coles Supermarkets Australia Pty Ltd, trading as Coles (ASX:CGJ) states that 120 grams of a brand of pretzel sticks is worth  one Aussie dollar and twenty five cents.

Coles (ASX: CGJ) also state that this is worth half an Australian dollar per 100 grams.

Simple Hindi-Arabic mathematics will tell you that 100 grams of these pretzels are worth one Australian Dollar and four cents, which is rounded up  to five cents, because the fractions of a dollar in the penal colony are worth less now than they were before, but that's another post or seventeen.

Since we're talking about an 'error' by the corporations committed against the slaves in a penal colony, the corporations are allowed forgiveness.

If this action was to occur in the 'the land of the free' (the Ewe Ess of Aye) maybe a homo-sexually married pair (Aussie term: poofs or lezzos) could get 21.6969 million USDM (United Snakes Drug Money- from the poppy seeds of Afghanistan) for their 'feelings' being hurt...

Maybe they stuffed up by revealing the wholesale price? 60c for the 120grams. Shows that these price labels are not automated and are prone to error.
