If you're going to pick on her as a foreigner, how about:

"At today's exchange rate with your currency, that $3.99 is about the price of a new car in your country."

What evidence have you that she's a foreigner?

Perhaps she's just a semi-literate dumass.

actually bottles of la fée now come with a tear-off offer for an absinthe spoon on the back label. £3.99 (pounds), most likely...
that is why they get the big bucks...marketing, baby!

She can get a gross of the plastic ones from Headly for $3.99, right?

One of the little pleasures of being a site admin, is dealing with the questions that, on a daily basis, are sent to info@feeverte.net.

It seems a pity not to share some of these with you, so I'll occasionally post them here - unedited and unaltered.

Oops.

Upon re-reading Oxy's original post, I realized that I'd shared my silly experience in the wrong section of this little community. The category title "Administrative News & Site Updates" should have been a clue.

My apologies.

I say they start putting a prize in the bottle, just like Capn Crunch.

Imagine what has happened in a few years!

On my old bottle of La Fée there's a peel off label with for a La Fée spoon at £5 !

When I bought a bottle of La Fee several years ago it came with a spoon.

A fine absinthe is the product of knowledge, craftsmanship, and talent. An exceptional absinthe is the product of those things plus obsession. Most absinthe is the product of marketing.

I bought La Fée with a spoon a few years ago. £3 or £5 isn't really that big a difference really. Well, either way, it's a piece of steel.

I know whose spoons I'll be buying when I get some money.

I get e-mails all the time from people wanting me to sell them my artwork directly,
the last one, I took my time and wrote a polite response,
I explained that the people who represent my work don't make much money on it, especially considering the level of service they provide exceeds any thing I could do .
I got back one of those " I'm sorry I do not allow incoming mail without prior approval" messages,
it really ticked me off,
anyone reading this:
Please, don't ask me for grilles that are already available.

Is is true they have a coupon on the bottle which you can use to get 50p off the cost of a sick bag?
