Small/Medium/Large - Ed's journal
If you do 3 sizes of something, say, pizza.
Then the correct sizes to be serving in, is NOT:
Medium, Large, Super.

It's 'Small, Medium, Large'.
Damnit. A 'small' pizza is not a scary thing, to be omitted from your menu.

You clearly do not work in marketing.

They're just trying to make it sound like the small isn't as stupidly small as it is :P

Just go in, ask for a "small" pizza, and when they say they can't sell you one, say "Oooh, well, a 'medium' would be too big for me" and walk out again.

Even worse are the pretentious coffee shops that dispense with english and go for things like "tall" "grande" and other rubbish.

I always make a point of asking for a small, medium or large and woe betide the monkey behind the counter that thinks that I should order in the manner used by their company.
