Among things that get my goat are mission statements, like "We're on your side" and
"Protecting our community ", perhaps fire engines should have"We put out fires" painted
on their sides in case somebody doesn't know what they are.

The best one was SAC's  "Peace is our profession "  ................ :D

I had to sit through repeated adverts on the insurance company telephone line,  they kept saying they would insure my story.. Since I'm not an author I did not want a story insured, just my motor bike.

John Lewis: Never Knowlingly Undersold ???
“We are indebted to those soldiers who served with courage and distinction to bring peace to Northern Ireland,” UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said. “The welfare of our former service personnel is of the utmost importance.”

the claim is they will always price match.
However even things like branded washing machines are often a different part number so although they are all but Identical you can't get a lower price from them...

 Though we did manage it on a VCR which tells you how long ago that was..
