There is no Year of the sheep. This coming Lunar New Year is the Year of the Goat.
While they may belong to the same family (are they?), it is still fundamentally different.
Just the other day, I was buying some Lunar New Year greeting cards and my cousin pointed out that the prints on one of the design are sheeps, not goat. Well, they probably used sheeps as sheep looks cuter and fuller with its wool. And in Mandarin, it has the Chinese character of goat.
Whether its sheep or goat, whether sheep and goat are the same is not important.
The thing is how careless people are in making such mistakes.
It may be an oversight but when you are spending thousands of dollars advertising, sometimes an oversight can cost you not just the price of the ad you placed.
Just last December, Singapore Airlines made a computer error that led travel agents in Australia to sell Business Class tickets at Economy Class prices. The airline retracted its decision not to absorb the price difference after an uproar as it realized protecting the goodwill of customers (not to inconvenience them) and reputation of the company is more important than the lost profit on the price difference.the compan
The loss probably costs Singapore Airlines a few hundred thousand or million bucks which the company can afford it. But can you afford to be so careless?
What if the carelessness is not in the wording but in the pricing?
