Fighting for your consumer rights
Recently a Wild Wing opened up about a 2 minute walk from my home. As I am a very big fan of wings, I thought to myself: ”This is going to be dangerous! I’m going to have wings once a week now that they’re so accessible…” Lucky for me, their ridiculous pricing structure will prevent me from ever returning.
Being a growing man (mostly just horizontally at this point), I tend to need more than just a pound of wings to be satisfied. I generally go for two pounds. As I was browsing the menu, I immediately noticed what must be a mistake in Wild Wing’s pricing structure:
An order of DOUBLE wings (18 pieces) is more expensive two SINGLE orders (9 pieces). A double order is $19.99, yet two single orders is $19.98. Usually pricing is set up to reward the customer that purchases more in a single order. I asked the server if this was a mistake and was informed that this is how it has always been.
I understand that it’s only a penny, but it’s the principle that bugs me here. Fortunately, this joke of a pricing structure has caused me to never want to return to Wild Wing. I will now be able to keep my manly figure and save some money for my upcoming trip to build houses for the poor in Guatemala – more details on this and how you can help to follow.
