Get to the checkout at HD and the "clerk" (English is second language) rings/scans my stuff and says that will be $38.00. I do the math in my head and the bill should be more like $190.00.
I look at the tally and "Clerk" has charged me for 24' of stock at whatever a foot. I have 171' of stock. I get out my pocket notebook and write down the numbers, do the math and tell "clerk" that it is this many feet at x dollars a foot. Clerk argues with me, that no it is this much money. At that point if I had a lick of sense I should have paid the bill and saved over $150.00. But Nooooo I have to do the honest thing, so I call the floor manager over and ask for some help. FM sees the mistake politely corrects the "Clerk" and I pay the bill, all $200 and some dollars of it.
2 weeks later, same "Clerk", I'm getting handfulls of nuts, bolts washers etc. About $20.00 worth. Same scenario, "clerk" says $4.80. I stop and remember last time and........................ Pay the $4.80 bill and leave.
I feel 2.8% guilty and 97.8% pissed !
What would you have done ?
