Beware the small print

The Dome.
One Utama.

D.Fernandez pointed at the standee card with a screaming 50% OFF on our table: if you’re paying with a Standard Chartered Credit Card, you get half price on drinks. Later when we’ve chowed down our sandwiches and he’s paying the bill he asked the waiter why there was no discount. The waiter said it only applied to soft drinks - the fizzy type like pepsi, coke, etc.

“What the big print giveth, the small print taketh away,”
I quipped, quoting something I read somewhere.

The catch is always in the small print.
Small prints make cynics of us all.
