Sales (#817)

Why can’t people resist a good sale?
It’s like they’re under some money spell,
If there’s a discount, they’re game to buy,
Even if the discount isn’t all that high,
10%, 15%, 20% and people go mad,
Anything higher and it must be had!
Even for stuff people don’t really need,
At 50% off there will be a stampede!
Not even an ounce of buyer’s regret,
I guess it’s something I really don’t get,
I can understand not paying full price,
I agree that a discount can be nice,
But it must be for something I need,
Why over logic do the sales supersede?

Any Thoughts?
