The price of commercial incompetence is financial loss.
It's their fault if they train their staff so poorly, even if you
didn't go out of your way to try and correct them.

You should feel terrible about not saying, "This is all I could carry to
the register, I need some help getting the rest of the maple."
That's pretty much what I did when the cashier AND the store manager
insisted that the T&G cedar ($5.98) was pine carsiding ($3.29).

It may have had the wrong sku labels on it. At my local HDs, if they
scan something that is priced in lineal feet, the register prompts them
to input the number of feet I'm buying so it can calculate the price.

Good point Mike. She did ask me how many I had. I started counting and
figuring up the total footage real quick when she interrupted me and said "I
only need to know how many boards you have altogether. So I told her <g> To
answer some others questions, I did pass the savings on to my customer since
after all it was automatically charged to their account. Someone else asked
about it showing up short at the end of the day on her register. I believe
it probaby wont show up until inventory time which if its like Wal-Fart its
only a couple times a year. My ex has worked there for years and she always
dreaded inventory time for this exact reason. As for Mel, well I think
anyone with a brain in this group can see he doesnt play well with others.
No sense of humor to say the least. I think you will all agree thats not the
way it is in here. You got to roll with the punches and learn to take jokes
when they come your way without getting all huffy puffy offended. Since
after all it was intended as a joke in the first place.
