在上一期文章里,普特君给大家讲到了生活中一些常见的“陷阱“,有事可能会让你开始怀疑人生,那些明明功能对等但价格不合理的女性用品,那些商家为了刺激消费而故意生产出的有缺陷的产品等等......其实,类似的陷阱远超出我们的想象。

一起来看看吧!

Textbooks, at least at US universities.

课本,至少在美国是这样。

Depending on the subject they can cost anywhere from $100-$400 USD per book. New editions are released annually to ensure that the content remains up to date. (and the price remains high)
不同科目价格不一样,但每本都在100到400美元之间。每年都会出新版本以确保内容是最新的(价格还是一样贵)。
Selling water at a few dollars a bottle.
一瓶水就要几美元。

Cellphone data. They sell it like it's a finite resource, like they'll run out if they give you too much. But yet if you don't use it all that month, none of it rolls over. In Canada we also pay the same amount of money for 2gb that other countries get 100gb or more for.
手机流量。商家搞得好像它是个有限资源,给你太多就会用完了一样。但就算你那个月没用完流量,它们也不会变少。在加拿大,我们2GB流量费跟别的国家100GB流量费一样贵。
"If you tell the truth I won't get mad."
“你说实话,我不生气。“
Jewellery. A friend used to work for a well-known jewellery store, her employee benefits meant that she could buy rings, earrings, etc. for $7 - $15. But they would sell it to customers for $50 - $100.
珠宝。我一个朋友以前在一家知名珠宝店工作,她的员工内部价可以让她花7到15美元买各种戒指和耳环。然而,面对消费者,这些商品的售价就是50到100美元不等了。
Standing in line for 20 minutes to spend $4-6 on mediocre coffee, looking at you Starbucks.
排20分钟队+花4到6美元+普通咖啡=星巴克
Apple, Orange, lemonade drinks (contains 0% juice).
苹果汁,橙汁,柠檬汁饮品(里面完全没有真正果汁)
