A friend and I have just gotten piercings, and due to me having some already, advised we get ibuprofen to handle the immediate swelling and pain. We go to our local pharmacy.

Friend: Which one do we need?

Me: One that has ibuprofen in it.

Friend: Ah *picks up the most expensive branded box*

Me: Ugh: I’d rather go with the generic kind *picks up my own box*

Friend: But look at it. It’ll probably kill you!

Me: They are literally the same. Yours is branded though so they charge extortionate prices.

Friend: No, this one is better.

I take his box and show him the ingredients on the back. By a stroke of luck, they are EXACTLY the same.

Friend: *after spending along time comparing* Mine is still better!

I shrug and we pay for out own painkillers. He paid £3.49, while I paid 39p.
