Today I got to do one of the really enjoyable parts of my job, for the last time. That is, I went to the annual meeting at the advisory committee I belong to (on behalf of my employer) for the local technical college, NAIT. They keep in close touch with local industry and tailor their programs to meet our needs. After the meeting, they always take us out for lunch in their special restaurant where their chefs are apprenticing. That is a serious incentive. Yum.
Anway, that’s not what that post is about. Across the road from NAIT is a big mall that I never go to because I hate all the traffic and congestion. But, they have a couple of stores that specialize in hockey jerseys. Ron and I were thinking of getting the kids Oiler jersey’s for Christmas this year so I went to check them out. Do you have any idea how much these things cost? I couldn’t believe it
This Jersey cost $129! What a scam. I was looking at the fabric and construction and came to the conclusion that you’re paying about $10 for materials and the rest for the trademarked logo. They are all like that. Even the ones for the little kids. I was disgusted.Well, now you know what my kids are not getting for Christmas!
