Decimal Point.  Today, at a major supermarket in Renton, WA, reusable     bags are priced at 0.99 cents and 99 cents.  These two signs were a few feet from each other.  I’d rather pay the penny then the dollar.  The cashier told me they would sell me one bag for a penny.

In a Lowes in WA, I saw a string of lights priced at 0.99 cents.  I asked the cashier about it.  The cashier told me they were a dollar each.  She asked if I wanted to talk to the store manager.  I did.  The store manager asked me, “what should it say?”.
