Eggs and Pence

Years ago, in order to attract customers, major supermarkets launched promotional activities one after another, offering preferential prices for many commodities to attract customers’ attention. Among them, eggs are the most famous. I lived nearby and opened a small supermarket years ago. I went out for a walk at night. I went in and had a look. There were not many people in the supermarket. I am just a family man. When I enter the supermarket, I like to drill into the vegetable and meat egg area to see the price of vegetables and meat eggs. In these days, men who are promising don’t care about their families, while men who care about their families are worthless. I am the latter. The fruit radish costs five or eight cents, which is not expensive, and the stall needs eight cents; The garlic costs two or nine cents, and the outside costs two or five cents. It seems that the outside quality can be slightly better, people picked it up in the supermarket. When I was looking at it, I heard the broadcast saying: from now on, the eggs will cost yuan, and the time limit will be ten minutes to buy. Two block jiu mao jiu? The preferential price offered by large supermarkets is Yuan, each person is limited to purchase, and the price sold outside is yuan, which also attracts many old men and women to queue up to buy. Two block jiu mao jiu? This discount is too big! I was so close to the egg stall that I subconsciously lined up in the queue of buying eggs. I felt that people from all directions gathered here. The announcement of egg discount is still repeated on the radio: two yuan and nine cents, limited to ten minutes. There were not many people standing in front of me. I looked back and saw many people standing behind me immediately, most of whom were old uncles and aunts. When I came in just now, I didn’t think there were many people in the supermarket! Why do you feel that there is a sudden increase at this time? Coming to me, I suddenly remembered an article I saw a long time ago, either from readers or Youth Digest. There was a couple whose son was studying in England. They went to England to see his son. During the day, his son went to school. The couple had nothing to do, so they went to the bank of the Thames to play, when I saw a five-penny coin on the road, I picked it up conveniently. Then I went forward and picked up many such coins one after another, but the face value was different, there were one or two pence coins, there are also ten pence, even twenty pence. Along the way, I have gained a lot. When they got home, when their son came back, the couple couldn’t wait to tell their son today’s experience. But the son said: Dad, Mom, don’t pick it up in the future. This is all left by passers-. The couple was shocked, and the son explained: a child without money could pick up the coins on the ground and go home by car; A wandering poor man could pick them up and have a full meal. The couple understood. The next day, they came to the bank of Thames again and threw the coins they found yesterday onto the road again. This story was just a flash in my mind. It was almost time for me to buy eggs. I quit the egg-buying team and bought four fruits and radishes and more than three jin of garlic to go home.
