It seems that these days no opportunity for cheating is missed, no matter how blatant. The new champion for dishonesty is Century Link Arena (professional hockey), selling fans a large beer for $7 that contains no more beer than a $4 small beer.
The arena’s response:
“It was recently brought to our attention that the amount of beer that fits in our large (20-oz) cups also fits in our regular (16-oz) cups. The differentiation in the size of the two cups is too small. To correct that problem, we’re purchasing new cups for the large beers that will hold 24 ounces, instead of 20, for the remainder of this season to provide better value to our fans. As we do every offseason, we’ll evaluate our entire concessions menu for next season over the summer,”
Yup, zero would be “too small.” And even 24-oz is less beer per dollar than the 16-oz. Not a hint of apology. The fans are suing – I would too. Punitive damages?
