Can you believe I found a barcode sweater?!

Posted November 2, 2013

Barcode shirt


I had to share this picture of a sweater I saw at the store today - it has a barcode on it!  It is sold at Rue 21and I thought my shopper friends would find it amusing.

I am choosing to ignore the other possible meaning of a girl wearing a sweater with a barcode (indicating she may be for sale). And when my daughter thought it was cute, I immediately vetoed it.

But, from the shopper standpoint, it is pretty funny.  What do you think about the shirt?

    splucker - I know! From a mom's perspective - it is disturbing. But from a shoppers view - it's hysterical.

    That's funny, ncveteranswife!

    Maybe it's just me, but I think that's cool! Too bad we can't just take that to the store and save without having to take coupons!

    There is something slightly disturbing about that shirt.

    Faye, do you know where the UPC code was invented? IBM's (now Toshiba) Retail store solutions division developed it in the mid 70's.
